Adam and Eves New Clothes

new_clothes_2

How devastating for Adam and Eve to be awakened from sins moments of delight, to confront their new reality  – expelled from paradise – a wonderful relationship with God shattered.

  • And yet we see the Angels (creator, teacher, elohim) taking deliberate, decisive and compassionate action to provide essential coverings for Adam & Eves clumsy attempt to hide their shame, embarrassment and fear, a result of their sin.
  • The Genesis record tells the story of a God, acting as a saviour, providing coverings for Adam and Eve, so they can again feel comfortable coming back into the presence of the Angels, as the angels begin the process of repairing the friendship and healing the effects of sin.
  • The more we look on this scene, the more we learn about the merciful character of God, who can see through mans fickle and vulnerable efforts, and setts about to lay the foundations of the gospel, the things which concern the kingdom of God and the things of the name of Jesus, mans ultimate covering.

  1. From Genisis chapter 3:9-11 and :21, how do think Adam and Eve felt after receiving their new clothes?

    What was God teaching about sin by providing this type of covering?

    What a strange concept, producing shiny new clothes by washing them in blood. How is this possible, what does this mean? (cp Rev 7:14)

    My special summary of Adam and Eve’s new clothes….

    My key quotes for Adam and Eves New Clothes

    • On the fifth day God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; God said do not eat from the tree of good and evil because then you will become mortal and die. one day a serpant convinced Eve to eat of the tree of and Adam aet of ot to and they realised that their eys were open and they were naked! Adam and eve made themselves fig leaf clothes. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

      • What was God teaching about sin by providing this type of covering? That God forgives you and when you fix it yourself it never works but when you ask God to help you it always works.
        What a strange concept, producing shiny new clothes by washing them in blood. How is this possible, what does this mean? That when we are batised there is a saying: We are being buried with Christ and being risend and forgived in other words we are being washed in the blood of the lamb who is jesus and when we get washed in his blood we are forgived and have shiney new clothes.
        The Bibles special method about covering sin in my words is…. being baptised and being risen and when you do it you have to mean it not just go in and out no you have to mane it!
        My key quotes for Adam and Eves New Clothes:
        1: They sined
        2: Man fix
        3: God did not like it
        4: God fix
        5: All was well but….
        6: Adam and Eve were sent out of the garden because they had sined.

    • Adam and eve most probably would have felt awkward, being able to see themselves naked for the first time. after receiving the clothes they would have felt sorry and sad and scared about what God was going to do to them.

      if you try to cover up your wrong doing without God you are sure to come out the wrong end and it will just be even worse. But, if you pray to God for help he will provide to help you fix the problem.

      it is a symbol, by being baptized you are symbolically dying with Jesus and rising with him. so by dying with Christ, in his blood and also rising with him you are becoming clean and riding yourself of blood. (sin)

      eve eats of fruit, told not to
      eve makes Adam eat to
      both see themselves naked
      hide
      God provides covering
      sent out of the garden
      garden blocked
      Adam eve live and die

      sin
      ask God for help he helps

  2. 1. they would have felt embarrassed that they had no clothes before they got their new clothes. so they hid from God thinking that God wouldn’t find them.
    2 the lamb was like Jesus because the lamb had to die to cover the sins of other people. like how god sacrificed himself so that we could live.
    3. it is possible if it is Jesus’s blood in the verse it says with the lambs blood but is really referring to Jesus Christ.
    4. my summary of Adam & Eve’s new clothes is that they sinned and tried to cover it up with an innocent lamb and they where punished for their wicked doing. and they were sent out of the Garden of Eden.
    5.

  3. 1. Verses 9-11 + 21… Oh I dunno sad, resentful…
    2. That we’d always be with him until the end but consequences happen.
    3. Adam and Eve made their own clothes out of leaves and mud but God made us clothes that if we believe in Jesus we will be immortal.
    4. Pretty much what happened is that Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge and good and evil because the serpent believe that if they are from that tree first they would have power like God and the Angels and then ate from the tree of life they would be immortal, however that is not what happened. God discovered what they had done straightaway and he scolded them and kicked them out of the garden. Although because he is kind caring and loving, God made them new clothes.
    5. We must believe in him to be immortal and cover our sin.
    6. *Eve and Adam sinned.
    *They try to fix it.
    *God was unhappy.
    *God fixed.
    *They got kicked out of the Garden and made to live the hard way.
    *However God will always be with us whatever we do or go.

    See you tonight JFP! I can’t wait!

  4. They felt embarrassed and ashamed when Adam and Eve found out that they were naked. It kind of relates to Jesus being our offering for ours sins and and our covering like they lamb that was slain to give us life. For the third question when Adam and Eve washed the lambs skin it represents baptism being full of sin then becoming knew and clean.
    🙂 🙂

  5. Adam and Eve must of felt embarrassed for they we’re naked.
    They had sinned and tried to fix it and didn’t ask for gods help and mercy.
    I can’t wait for JFP its going to be awesome.
