Eve: The Motion Picture

Eve: The Motion Picture March 10, 2014

What struck me most was the parental nature of God as depicted in the sketch. Disobedience wasn't something surprising, and Eve is not told “Get out of this house, you disobeyed my rules” or something authoritarian like that, but rather than she was going to need to move out on her own sooner or later. I think much of that is true to the symbolism of the story. Human beings are not meant to live in Eden – in childlike innocence – forever. We are supposed to grow up, figuring things out, make mistakes, and become mature.

Also on Adam and Eve, Mike Bird shared a video with Alister McGrath, which is definitely in a different genre than a Saturday Night Like skit.
