    In Hebrew, Eden directly translates to delight, so the Garden of Eden is literally the garden of delight. The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible contains the book of Genesis where the creation story of Adam and Eve is told. In the biblical story of Adam and Eve, they live in the paradise of Eden until they commit the original sin.

Paradise is not appreciated until it is taken away because it goes unknown until an unperfect life is introduced. The biblical story of Adam and Eve tells of God’s first creations living in the Garden of Eden. The story starts with God creating…

    In the garden of Eden God created male and female. They are “suited” for one another. Woman, coming forth from man, completed man’s need for fitting relationship. The one could not carry out God’s command to be fruitful, multiply and have dominion over the earth, without the other. Thus, for all of time, uniqueness of gender was established. The abilities of men and women differ. God made Adam to care for the garden, to protect and to keep it, and He made Eve to be a helper for Adam. Adam…

    Steinbeck’s work is most often compared to the biblical Garden of Eden, yet his novels and the scriptural story show distinct resemblance to the ancient Greek myth, Pandora’s Box. As Rebecca Barnes stated, “The myth of Pandora bears striking similarities to the Christian creation myth most frequently associated with Steinbeck’s novels” (Barnes, 159) Women are depicted as releasing evil throughout history, especially in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men and East of Eden which hold heavy…

    The novel, Lord of the Flies, can be examined as a Biblical Allegory as many parallels are drawn between the novel and the story of the Garden of Eden. Golding uses similar environmental factors that can be compared between the two stories. The powerful theme of temptation is also evident, and represents how evil can sometimes over power against good. A third parallel can be drawn on the idea that the boys are under the presence of God, but are left by themselves on this microcosm without a…
