In Genesis 3 the Bible says, the devil appeared as a serpent in the Garden, and began to tempt Eve to go against God’s rule (Genesis 3:1). He convinced Eve to doubt God’s Word. Satan told Eve, if she ate the fruit from the tree she would become as enlightened as God, knowing all of what He knows, and that she would no longer need Him. Satan does this in the modern world today. He convinces humans that they do not need God.
Satan's actions also are shown on Milton's writings. It starts out as early as the beginning of the earth. When Satan attracted Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. In his speech to Beelzebub he said that ' good will never be their task, but ever to do ill our sole delight and out of good still find means of evil. '; This shows us that Satan tempts us to do evil actions and like it, and how most of us get pleasure or amusement out of it.
The correlations between these two characters help the reader understand why they act the way they do but also see the devastating consequences of those actions. Eve and Satan are both tempters and use the same arguments to persuade their victims; they also hold subordinate positions and want to elevate their statuses. Eve and Satan both tempt their victims using the same arguments. Once Satan finally corners Eve, and after all of his flattery, he suggests that she eat the fruit of the Tree of Forbidden Knowledge, saying, Queen of this universe, do not believe those rigid threats of death; ye shall not die: How should ye? The fruit?
In John Milton’s Paradise Lost, Satan seeks revenge against God and causes the fall of man. He deceives Adam and Eve and gets them to disobey God. God ends up seeming cruel because of the way He punishes Adam and Eve but, He’s not. God could have killed them for disobeying him, instead He’s giving them a second chance with life, its just going to be a harder life. God is just doing what He has to by sending them out of the Garden.
He is in the literal sense being made to crawl on his belly forever, and eat dust as punishment for his sin of tempting Adam and Eve (Gn 3:14). God also tells him he will “but enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel” (Gn. 3:15). The literal interpretation of this, what the human author meant, is that humans will be above snakes. Humans can step on snakes’ heads, but snakes can only reach the feet of people to harm them.
The first disobedience act Satan was the starter of all man disobedience , he was the one to perceived Eve on giving her an idea to eat the forbidden fruit. God gave Satan the power through force and discourse which led Satan to be the ruler over the falling angels. Hell is feared. God knows every move that Satan is going to make ,
It is not the nakedness itself that brings shame, instead it is the fact that Adam and Eve suddenly come to know their own vulnerability, and that there is such thing as being exposed. The loss of innocence for Adam and Eve is connected to the notion of truly "knowing" and "seeing." Before eating the forbidden fruit, they were in blindly living; abiding by the commands of God without question. It is the serpent who tempts them, and challenges God's authoritative power. Curiosity and knowledge are what lead Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.
He knows that they are now doomed, but immediately decides that he cannot live without Eve. Eve wants him to suffer the same fate as she. Adam eats the fruit. Both the Bible and Paradise Lost hold Adam and Eve at fault. But, both accounts place one of them in a more negative account.
Instead, Adam and Eve give praise and worship to the forbidden Tree of Knowledge. After eating the fruit, Adam states, "If such pleasure be/In things to us forbidden, it might be wished,/For this one tree had been forbidden ten" (IX. 1024-6). Adam and Eve's love is no longer sacred and innocent. Instead, "in lust they burn" with "carnal desire inflaming" (IX.
Yet he failed and ate with Eve from the tree. And later that day, as God was walking in the garden in the coolness of the day, He called out to Adam. Adam and Eve were hiding from Him, as they knew they blew it. When God questioned Adam why did he eat from the tree, Adam blamed Eve. God is fair and just and He loves us all.
