Eve And Pandora Teach A Lesson On Temptation

772 words - 3 pages

In the bible, Eve was the first woman on the face of the earth. In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on earth. Both are curious, and end up doing something the wrong way. I chose Eve and Pandora because they seemed very interesting to me, and they both give good lessons about temptation.
In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on earth. Zeus asked Hephaestus, the god of craftsmanship, to create a girl they would then name Pandora.

Later, God found out, and punished Adam and Eve by sending them out of the garden forever. “Therefore the Lord sent them out of the Garden of Eden till the ground from which they were taken.” (Genesis 3:23) It was the snake’s temptation that led Eve to eat the fruit, and God’s punishment is that the earth is now cursed.
