The Fruit and the Fall

Dear God,

I just got finished eating an apple. What exactly WaS the fruit that Adam and Eve ate in the Garden of Eden? Why do people say it was an apple? It doesn't say anything about the fruit being an apple or even resembling an apple.

Perhaps it was a cherry or an orange. Except, oranges have to be peeled and I imagine that it was one of those ready made kind of fruits that a person could pick and eat without all the fuss of peeling (banana, grapefruit, lemon, kiwi....)

Whatever it was, it sure started a mess when they ate it.


{Daily Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:1-19}

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was
good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also
desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some
and ate it. She also gave some to her
husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
Genesis 3:6
