What do we learn from this Parasha?
What are the 3 basic questions we need to ask from this Parasha?
- What was so special about at the “Etz Hadaat Tov Ve-Ra
- Why were they clothed with fig leaves after eating from the forbidden tree ?
- How did the snake “Ha-Yetzer Ha-Ra convince Chava to eat from the forbidden tree?
The answer to question #3 is that the Yetzer Ha-Ra was always there. But it was in an outward state. It was not built into the human body. The moment Adam and Chava ate the fruit from the forbidden tree the Yetzer Ha-Ra became an integrated part in the human body.
