Temptation

In Christian tradition, the apple stands for the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. It is the symbol of Temptation. The serpent is Satan, the Great Tempter.

The story of man’s fall, related in the book of Genesis, shares similar elements with the stories told by many cultures in that part of the world in that time. The stories were an answer to the big questions about man’s beginnings and the origin of evil, questions with which every thinking people has wrestled.

Four thousand years later, the truth remains: To be born into this world is to inevitably lose one’s innocence. Along with its joy and wonder, life brings temptation, pain, and evil. But from this suffering is born our great hope, the hope of our redemption.
