EVE: THE APPLE OF ADAM’S EYE BASED ON:

Genesis 2

BIG IDEA:

When God saw that Adam was lonely, he created Eve to be his companion. Even with God, we can still be lonely for others. God made us to live together in families.

BACKGROUND:

God spoke the world into existence and called everything that he had made “good.” After Adam realized that there was no partner or companion for him, he felt lonely. The first thing that God ever said wasn’t good about his creation was Adam’s loneliness. God then created Eve from a rib in Adam’s side. At last God had finished his creation and he called it all “very good.”

NEW TESTAMENT CONNECTION:

God created us to live in community with each other. We’re designed to both need and help each other. Believers are told to love each other (1 Peter 1:22; 1 John 4:11; Romans 13:8), accept one another (Romans 15:7), serve one another (Galatians 5:13), be kind to one another (Ephesians 4:32), forgive one another (Colossians 3:13), and encourage one another (Hebrews 3:13).

CAST:

You’ll need 4 children for this QuickSkit: Narrator (girl or boy), Eve (preferably a girl), Adam (preferably a boy), God (boy)

PROPS:

None

TOPICS:

Creation, family relationships, friendship, loneliness, new life

TIPS:

Position the Narrator in the center of the stage with Adam on one side and God and Eve on the other. Bring up the stage lights, and then begin when the listeners are quiet.

Director:

Lights! . . . Camera! . . . Action!

Narrator:

Wham! There was the moon!

Narrator:

When God was creating the world, all types of fish and birds and animals appeared.

God:

Let there be all kinds of cool stuff!

Narrator:

Zowie! There was all kinds of cool stuff!

God:

(Smiling and nodding) That’s good. . . .

Narrator:

But God hadn’t made any animals that could talk to him or walk with him, or understand right from wrong, or imagine or dream or believe in him as their Savior—

God:

Let there be hippos!

Narrator:

Poof! There were hippos!

God:

Let there be butterflies!

Narrator:

Poof! There were butterflies!

God:

Let there be a moon!

Eve: The Apple of Adam’s Eye

God:

Hm . . . I’m not quite done yet. I’m gonna make someone special!

Narrator:

So God came down to the earth and reached into the soil and formed a person.

God:

I’ll make a man out of mud.

Adam:

That’s me—Mud Man!

Narrator:

No, you’re Adam.

Adam:

(Acting like Superman) Da-da-da-da! Adam Man! Otherwise known as Dirt Dude! Hey, can I have a crime-fighting superhero suit?

Narrator:

Adam:

Adam wasn’t a superhero. But he was pretty super. He had no sin in his life, and he was very smart. E equals MC squared. . . . Wichita is the capital of Kansas. . . . The average rainfall in the southern highlands of Guatemala is 52 inches per year. . . .

Narrator:

And then, God breathed onto his creation . . .

God:

(Breathe on Adam)

Adam:

Um . . . did God have bad breath?

Narrator:

No.

Adam:

OK. Just checking. . . . Hey, why didn’t he call me “Clay”? That would have been appropriate.

Adam:

—a human walkie-talkie—

Narrator:

—and God gave Adam the job of taking care of the beautiful new world.

God:

Adam, take care of the beautiful new world.

Adam:

Okee-dokee, God.

Narrator:

Then, God let Adam name the animals. So God sent them past, and Adam gave them names . . .

Adam:

Betsy . . . Fred . . . Gertrude . . . Ann . . . Julie . . . Bob . . .

Narrator:

Um . . . not quite. Things like, “Hippo! Dodo bird!” Things like that.

Adam:

Oh. Hippo. Dodo bird. Dinosaur. Oranga . . . Orange mango . . . Orgotango . . . Um . . . Monkey. . . .

Narrator:

But as Adam watched the animals go past, he didn’t see any that could stay with him and play with him and walk with him and talk with him.

Adam:

No more walkie-talkies . . . hm . . . these are all nice and everything, but I’d really like a sidekick.

Narrator:

When God saw that Adam was lonely, for the first time ever, the Lord said that something in his world wasn’t good.

God:

It’s not good for Adam to be lonely! I’m gonna make a partner and a friend for him.

Adam:

A sidekick!

Narrator:

“Adam” means “from the land.”

Adam:

I am Land Man! Do I get a trusty sidekick named “Soil Boy”?

God:

Close enough.

Narrator:

Adam didn’t have a trusty sidekick— yet.

Narrator:

So God caused Adam to get very sleepy. . . .

There! Now I’m almost done with my creation. . . .

God:

You are getting very sleepy. . . . Sleepy! . . .

Adam:

Um, no I’m not. I’m not sleepy at all. . . .

God: Narrator:

10

Now God was no longer alone. He had Adam to stay with him and play with him and walk with him and talk with him—

Eve: The Apple of Adam’s Eye

God:

Yes, you are! I’m God, believe me . . . you’re getting sleepy! . . .

Adam:

(Yawning) Oh, right . . . sleepy. . . . I guess I could use a little nap. . . . (snore! snore! . . . )

Narrator:

Then God took one of Adam’s ribs and formed a woman. Then, when Adam woke up, there was a lady lying right next to him. . . .

Adam:

Holy Toledo! Who are you?

Eve:

I’m Eve.

Adam:

Can I call you Mrs. Sidekick?

Eve:

Um, no.

Adam:

What about Mrs. Spare Rib?

Eve:

Not a chance.

Adam:

OK.

God:

Adam, this is your new wife, Eve!

Adam:

Where’s my old wife?

God:

You didn’t have one.

Adam:

Oh . . . hi, Eve!

Eve:

Hi, Adam.

Narrator:

And then they kissed each other . . . kissy, kissy, smooch!

Adam and Eve: (Together) NO WAY, JOSE! Narrator:

And so, Adam was no longer alone.

Adam:

Cool.

Narrator:

Eve was no longer a rib.

Eve:

Cool.

Narrator:

And God had finally finished creating his wonderful world.

God:

(Smiling and nodding) Cool. And very good. I’d give it two thumbs up!

Narrator:

And God took a rest while Adam and Eve went off by themselves to go kissy, kissy, smooch!

Adam and Eve: (Together) NO WAY, JOSE! Everyone:

Eve: The Apple of Adam’s Eye

(Together) The end!

(Smile, bow, and then take your seat.)

THOU SHALT NOT BITE! BASED ON:

Genesis 3

BIG IDEA:

God commanded Adam and Eve to avoid eating fruit from a certain tree in the garden. When they disobeyed him, he showed them mercy and love by promising them a Savior (see Genesis 3:15).

BACKGROUND:

The first words God ever spoke to Adam are, “You are free” (see Genesis 2:16). But Adam and Eve didn’t honor God in their freedom. When Satan, taking on the form of a snake, tempted Eve, she gave in. Pretty soon, Adam had joined her in her sin. When God confronted them, they discovered that they would have to leave God’s garden, but that he still had mercy for them.

NEW TESTAMENT CONNECTION:

In Romans 5, Paul explains that since sin entered the world through one man (Adam), sin can be forgiven by one man (Jesus Christ). Sometimes in the New Testament Jesus is referred to as the “New Adam” since he was tempted yet never gave in to sin.

CAST:

You’ll need 5-6 children for this QuickSkit: Narrator (girl or boy), Serpent (girl or boy), Eve (preferably a girl), Adam (preferably a boy), God (boy), Tree (adult, optional)

PROPS:

A piece of fruit and a rubber snake (both optional)

TOPICS:

Choices, consequences, death, following God, forgiveness, God’s love, God’s promises, grace, hiding, hope, listening to God, obedience, rebellion, second chances, sin, talking animals, temptation

TIPS:

• If you wish, you can invite a person up to be the Tree. Hand him a pear, apple, or banana and tell him to make his arms into branches. If you choose a man or adult for this part, when the script describes the Serpent being in the Tree, encourage the Serpent to climb up onto the shoulders or on the back of the person playing the Tree. Have fun with this part! • Position the students onstage with the Serpent and the Narrator to the left, the Tree and Adam and Eve in the middle, and God on the far right. Bring up the stage lights, and then begin when the listeners are quiet.

Director:

Lights! . . . Camera! . . . Action!

Narrator:

After God put Adam and Eve in the garden, he gave them instructions.

God:

You are free to eat of all the trees in the garden!

Adam and Eve:

12

(Together) Cool.

God:

But if you eat of the Tree Of Knowledge of Good and Evil, you will die.

Adam and Eve:

(Together) Bummer.

Narrator:

So one day Adam and Eve were walking around and came near the tree that God had warned them about. Hanging from the tree was a snake. . . .

Thou Shalt Not Bite!

(If you have a person playing the Tree, climb up onto his back or jump up into his arms. If desired, wave the rubber snake as you talk) Did God really say you couldn’t eat any fruit in his garden?!

Narrator:

But they hid from God because they were ashamed . . . and naked.

Adam and Eve:

(Together) Ah! Bummer. (Cross your arms in front of you like you’re covering your nakedness)

Eve:

Of course we can eat the fruit.

Narrator:

God told them they had messed up big time.

Adam:

Cool. God:

You guys have messed up big time.

Eve:

But there’s this one tree we can’t eat from, or touch. If we do, we’ll die. . . .

Adam and Eve:

(Together) We know.

God:

You’re gonna have to leave the garden . . . and you’re gonna die.

Serpent:

Adam:

Bummer.

Narrator:

Now Eve wasn’t remembering exactly what God had said. She was changing it around. And so was the snake!

Adam and Eve:

(Together) Bummer.

Narrator:

But then, God promised them a Savior.

Serpent:

You won’t die! You’ll get smarter! You’ll be like God!

Adam and Eve:

(Together) Cool.

Narrator: Narrator:

When Eve heard that, she took some fruit. And ate it.

That Savior would be their only hope to be close to God again.

Adam:

Yummy!

Eve:

Yummy! Narrator:

Narrator:

And she gave some to Adam.

Um . . . it wasn’t yummy. It was cool.

Adam:

Cool! . . . and yummy!

Adam:

Oh. Cool!

Narrator:

But as soon as they’d eaten it, they knew they were going to die . . .

Narrator:

And ever since then, believing in him has been the only hope for us, too.

Adam and Eve:

(Together) Bummer. Everyone:

(Together) The end!

Narrator:

. . . because they weren’t living God’s way. Then God came looking for them.

God:

(Smile, bow, and then take your seat.)

Hey! Where are you guys!?

Thou Shalt Not Bite!
