I stand corrected. I attempted to paraphrase the bible in a few words and did not feel references were called for. There is no original source of the bible since the current bible has come down from numerous sources. Ancient Egyptians provided some input and translations from sanskit, greek or whatever rely on translators. I have myself 'translated' and added more errors. Naag Hammani bible looks very early. Even the King James bible appears archaic in its language and has been updated to more modern language.
"The serpent tempted Eve who eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge. Adam also eat with eve and together they were aware of their shame.They then tried to hide their shame from each other and God"
Will this do you?
