Bible Era Legends Spring 2001 Response paper #1 2/18/01

Respond to the following essay question. Be succinct -- information is much more important than volume. This is due at the beginning of class on Wed, Feb. 21.

We have seen how midrashim and parabiblical literature often retells biblical stories, contracting and expanding to solve perceived problems in the text and to make the story more applicable to contemporary problems. Write your own midrash/parabiblical story based on the story of Adam and Eve (or the creation) which solves modern issues with the biblical account.
