Adam – The Second Patriarch Part 2 – A Patriarch’s Fall

This is the second entry in the series of patriarchal vignettes drawn from the stories about different men throughout biblical history. Please see Adam – The Second Patriarch: Part 1 – Creation of Patriarchy for the first part of this vignette about Adam.

By naming the beasts and birds, the man demonstrated he had authority over them and used it for good. But, for whatever reason, he did not exercise that authority over the serpent when it talked to the woman. He allowed the serpent to beguile his woman.
