Adam and Eve Dressed In a Fig Leaf

What has been believed to be going from literally naked to clothes of a fig leaf meant that the colloquial and Biblical metaphors of the Torah (Bible) were never really fully properly translated and interpreted.

The Sages explained that 6000 years ago (the time the Bible tells us Adam and Eve came onto the world stage) people did not walk around naked. Naked in the Genesis story referred to being devoid of the necessary character and mindset to obey God.

Adam was not the first man ever created (people from the cave man to Homo sapiens [our species] had been developing since the dinosaurs had become extinct) but he was the first man to know God.

No man ever made clothing of leaves which would have dried up in one day and fallen apart even when fresh. We know now that ‘clothes of leaves’ was an ancient Hebrew colloquial expression for ‘offering a poor excuse.’ The poor excuse offered by Adam and Eve in their penitence was the blaming of others and not accepting full responsibility for their actions.

As Adam and Eve had both used the same excuse (blaming others), therefore the word for ‘leaf’ in the original scrolls of Moses was in the singular.

Yet today Bible translations for both Christian and Jewish books use the word ‘leaves’ in the plural.


There has to be a logical explanation and the same ones we received from learned Biblical scholars was that the placement of the vowels under the Hebrew letters of the word for leaf, and other grammatical considerations, required the Hebrew word ‘leaf’ to be translated and understood to be in the plural.

But there is one problem with that explanation and that is the Hebrew grammatical system and placement of vowels to determine the pronunciation of the words were not developed and made part of the Hebrew grammar until more than 1000 years after Moses and the Israelites of the period of the Exodus. Moses never heard of Hebrew vowels as we see them in modern Hebrew reprinting of the Bible so that when he recorded the word ‘leaf’ in the singular, he meant one single poor excuse that both Adam and Eve used to explain why they ate of the forbidden fruit.

True contrition is not the blaming of others but rather assuming full responsibility for one’s actions. The Talmud (a collection of Jewish law and tradition) explains true contrition by comparing the cases of the transgressions of both King Saul and King David. Saul, who committed one transgression, was not forgiven but David who committed two, and both more inexcusable, was pardoned and the Messiah was to come from his bloodline. The explanation is that when Saul disobeyed God’s orders and spared the life of Agag, the Amalakite king, and did not destroy their livestock, he confessed his sin and said “I have sinned before God,” but then he added “for I was fearful of the nation and bowed to their demands.” Saul admitted his sin but blamed others as an excuse.

King David’s sins were stealing the wife of Uriah whom David then sent out to battle to get killed and the other sin was taking a head-count of the people which was done in violation of the Law. David too confessed and said “I have sinned before God,” but David did not seek to blame others for his transgressions and accepted full responsibility.

Both Adam and Eve confessed but each also blamed others and this then was unacceptable.

The story of the Garden of Eden is a parable, the mother of all parables, and so much can be learned from it.
