Paradise Lost – Genesis 3 – Draw Bible Stories Project

Paradise Lost Story (Genesis 3)

Truth Garden – fruit tree & flaming sword – Let me tell you a story about how evil entered our world. Adam and Eve lived in Eden Garden and walked with God.

Clever Deceiver – snake & people – Satan, Hellfire’s Dragon, visited Adam and Eve. He lied to them, saying they could become gods by knowing good and evil.

Absolute Failure – eaten fruit – God withheld only one thing from people: the Good & Evil Knowledge Tree. Adam and Eve believed the devil and rejected God.

Blood Sacrifice – altar, animal, knife – As punishment, God cast them out of Eden. God made work hard and child-bearing painful. God made clothes for Adam and Eve out of animal skins. He promised future salvation.
