Have you ever taken the time to imagine how incredibly beautiful the Garden of Eden must have been? I have seen amazing artwork that takes a stab at picturing this awe-inspiring place, but I have a feeling that no one has any idea of how magnificent it truly was. The beauty alone must have been breathtaking, but the fact that Adam and Eve had unhindered and intimate communication with their Father must have been the greatest part of that one-time garden. The Garden of Eden can be a place that many children will enjoy imagining, but it is also important to point out the tragic history of mankind’s beginnings. I believe it is crucial that our children have a handle on the basics of the topic of the Garden of Eden and here are 11 Bible trivia questions that you can easily integrate into any lesson on Adam and Eve’s first home.
