  1. There were two trees in Paradise. One was a Tree of Harmony and Perfection. It was from him that the Lord allowed Adam and Eve to pluck the fruit and eat. The second tree is the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It was strictly forbidden to eat fruit from it. But having succumbed to the persuasions of the devil in the form of a podkolodnaya snake, they disobeyed God the Father and devoured the apple. And the first thing that our ancestors experienced after tasting the forbidden fruit was a sense of shame! That is, if you translate from the biblical language to human – I did a bad thing and I realize ( because I didn't understand it before ) that my action is bad, I am ashamed of it, I despise myself, and I repent, and I will try not to commit such actions again. The main message of this biblical parable is repentance. In realizing the sinfulness of some of their actions and in rejecting them through REPENTANCE.

  2. Having committed the “fall”, Adam and Eve first experienced a sense of shame, fear…

    1. Historiographical ” аспект aspect. That Adam and eve, gregorov, for the first time felt shame and fear, we know not if “from” through Moses or those who speak on his behalf. Ie “shame” and “fear” of Adam and eve not the primary description of empirical evidence, and indirect explanatory design with obvious ideological overtones – this story is not how much describes “how it was�start with“how much explains the “why now , all right.” Thus, it is not known what Adam and Eve actually experienced.

    ..How could they know what was happening to them if they hadn't experienced anything like this before?

    1. Logical aspect. Understanding Kant's a priori forms as neobychnyh conditions of experience that precede it, allows you to flip the implied question a bunch of not knowing what a “shame” and “fear” are derived from the experiences of the relevant (although not defined in this quality) of feelings, but rather existing before the fall knowledge about shame and fear allows you to learn (not to confuse with anything else) and experience (experience) relevant experience. Precisely because before.”..The Lord commanded [i.e., gave to know=to know – AM]… on the day that you will eat of it. from the tree that is “desired because it gives knowledge” – AM], “you will die” (Gen 2: 16,17), Adam can and does experience fear as fear and shame as shame:”…I heard your voice in Paradise, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself “(Gen 3: 10).
  3. 7 And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
    (Genesis 3: 7)

    it is written that when they ate from the Tree of Knowledge, their eyes opened-apparently this is some kind of knowledge, perhaps even at the level of instinct, but consciousness (self-consciousness) was clearly present in this. Consciousness = with knowledge. ( from the tree of knowledge)

    9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, ” Where are you?”
    10 And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.
    11 And he said, Who told you that you were naked? Did you not eat of the tree from which I forbade you to eat?
    (Genesis 3: 9-11)

    Apparently, there is a difference between Adam's knowledge through communion with the Lord and Adam's knowledge from another source. Here and there comes knowledge, but there is a gulf between them.
