One day Adam and Eve were near the tree of knowledge of good and evil and a serpent appeared and "said to the woman, 'You surely will not die!'" (Ge 3:4) if you eat the fruit of the tree. It was a contradiction of God having said "'you will surely die.'" (2:17). Eve could see "that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes" (3:6). But how would she know it "was desirable to make one wise" (:6)? Then the serpent casted doubt on God's credibility saying, "'For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened'" (:5) which is another appeal to eyesight. Also, eating is referred to several times in these dialogs which points to the senses. Furthermore, the serpent said "'you will be like God, knowing good and evil'" (:5) which would imply that God was keeping something from them. It's interesting that Satan himself said "'I will make myself like the Most High'" (Isa 14:14). They proceeded to eat the fruit and "the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked" (Ge 3:7). They were created in the image of God but the serpent tempted them saying "'you will be like God'" (:5) which insinuated that they were lacking somehow. However, Jesus shows he is not depriving anyone saying, "'For their sakes I sanctify Myself'" (Jn 17:19) and prayed for those "'who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us'" (:20-21). "We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is" (1Jn 3:2). However, in the garden "the Lord God said, 'Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever (Ge 3:22). Therefore, God "drove the man out" (:24) of the garden all meaning to many, that it represents separation from God and spiritual death.
