God, who had created everything, had given Adam and Eve one important rule. They were allowed to eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden, except for the Tree of Knowledge.

This was a special test for Adam and Eve to see if they would obey God’s rule.

One day, a sly serpent slithered over and started talking to Eve. It told her that if she ate the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, she would become wise, just like God. Eve was tempted by what the serpent had said and she decided to take a bite from the fruit.
