In the Book of Genesis, the Genesis creation narrative tells of the creation of the first humans, humankind, in Genesis –30 as male and female.
According to the Documentary hypothesis of the Genesis creation narrative, there are two stories that derive from independent sources: a Priestly source (P) (sixth-fifth centuries BCE) in Genesis 1:1–2:4a and in Genesis 5; and an older Jahwist (J) or Jahwist-Elohist (J-E) (tenth-ninth centuries BCE) in Genesis 2:4b-25.
The story of Adam and Eve is often depicted in art, and it has had an important influence in literature and poetry.
The story of the fall of Adam is often understood to be an allegory.
They are innocent and unashamed about their nakedness.
However, a serpent deceives Eve into eating fruit from the forbidden tree, and she gives some of the fruit to Adam.
Adam is told that he can till the ground and eat freely of all the trees in the garden, except for a tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
