    PART 2

    Chapter I - The crystal sea, God commands Adam, expelled from Eden, to live in the Cave of Treasures.

    9 And God commanded him to live there in a cave in a rock the Cave of Treasures below the garden.

    Chapter II - Adam and Eve faint when they leave the Garden. God sends His Word to encourage them

    2 And when they came to the opening of the gate of the garden, and saw the broad earth spread before them, covered with stones large and small, and with sand, they feared and trembled, and fell on their faces, from the fear that came over them; and they were as dead. LIKE A DESERT

    Chapter III - Concerning the promise of the great five and a half days.

    3 But when Adam heard these words from God, and of the great five and a half days, he did not understand the meaning of them.

    4 For Adam was thinking there would be only five and a half days for him until the end of the world.

    5 And Adam cried, and prayed to God to explain it to him.

    6 Then God in his mercy for Adam who was made after His own image and likeness, explained to him, that these were 5,000 and 500 years; CLOSE TO 6,000

    17 Strengthen your heart, therefore, and stay in the Cave of Treasures, of which I have before spoken to you."

    Chapter IV - Adam mourns over the changed conditions. Adam and Eve enter the Cave of Treasures.

    2 And indeed, when Adam looked at his flesh, that was altered, he cried bitterly, he and Eve, over what they had done. And they walked and went gently down into the Cave of Treasures. THAT THEIR SKIN WAS NOW WHITE?

    3 And as they came to it, Adam cried over himself and said to Eve, "Look at this cave that is to be our prison in this world, and a place of punishment!

    4 What is it compared with the garden? What is its narrowness compared with the space of the other?

    5 What is this rock, by the side of those groves? What is the gloom of this cavern, compared with the light of the garden?

    6 What is this overhanging ledge of rock to shelter us, compared with the mercy of the Lord that overshadowed us?

    7 What is the soil of this cave compared with the garden land? This earth, strewed with stones; and that, planted with delicious fruit trees?"

    Chapter VI - God?s reprimand to Adam and Eve in which he points out how and why they sinned.

    5 Of your own free will have you transgressed through your desire for divinity, greatness, and an exalted state, such as I have; so that I deprived you of the bright nature in which you then were, and I made you come out of the garden to this land, rough and full of trouble.

    The First Book of Adam and Eve

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------ --------


    The First Book of Adam and Eve details the life and times of Adam and Eve after they were expelled from the garden to the time that Cain kills his brother Abel. It tells of Adam and Eve?s first dwelling - the Cave of Treasures; their trials and temptations; Satan?s many apparitions to them; the birth of Cain, Abel, and their twin sisters; and Cain?s love for his beautiful twin sister, Luluwa, whom Adam and Eve wished to join to Abel.

    This book is considered by many scholars to be part of the "Pseudepigrapha" (soo-duh-pig-ruh-fuh). The "Pseudepigrapha" is a collection of historical biblical works that are considered to be fiction. Because of that stigma, this book was not included in the compilation of the Holy Bible. This book is a written history of what happened in the days of Adam and Eve after they were cast out of the garden. Although considered to be pseudepigraphic by some, it carries significant meaning and insight into events of that time. It is doubtful that these writings could have survived all the many centuries if there were no substance to them.

    This book is simply a version of an account handed down by word of mouth, from generation to generation, linking the time that the first human life was created to the time when somebody finally decided to write it down. This particular version is the work of unknown Egyptians. The lack of historical allusion makes it difficult to precisely date the writing, however, using other pseudepigraphical works as a reference, it was probably written a few hundred years before the birth of Christ. Parts of this version are found in the Jewish Talmud, and the Islamic Koran, showing what a vital role it played in the original literature of human wisdom. The Egyptian author wrote in Arabic, but later translations were found written in Ethiopic. The present English translation was translated in the late 1800?s by Dr. S. C. Malan and Dr. E. Trumpp. They translated into King James English from both the Arabic version and the Ethiopic version which was then published in The Forgotten Books of Eden in 1927 by The World Publishing Company.

    beanpie writes perhaps mr patrick is more knowledgable than a man from regards spiritual things the answer is YES , what ? does a man who beleives that there are hunderds of gods and goddesses one of whom has the head of an elephant, have more TRUE knowledge than a born again christian who beleives in only ONE god ? NO! but let us get back to india and beanpies innacurate article which he posted.his article states that hinduism took roots in india 2,500 years ago, (which would give us a date of circa 500 bc.)
    that statement is absolute RUBBISH !!!, anyone who has any knowledge at all about india and indian history,knows that hinduism took root in india at least 1,000 yrs BEFORE that ,the earlist hindu hyms THE VEGAS were beleived by indian scholars to have been written beyween 1500 and 1200 b.c and the hindu trinity of gods were beleived to have been influenced by the invading AYRANS who brought with them their own trinity of gods ,in the second millenium before christ,(around 1500b.c)

    the article that beanpie posted mentioned the invading aryan hordes 2,500 years ago , which gives us a date of around 500 bc, but the world empire at that time was the PERSIAN empire, cyrus and his son cambyces, and after them darius, had an empire that reached to turkey--syria--israel and egypt in the west and south ,and also to india in the east, and the persians and medes were semites, descendents of shem.they were NOT aryans. the aryans that invaded northern india invaded in the second millenium before christ not the first ,i,e 3,500 yrs ago NOT 2,500 yrs ago. a different millenium and a different race.
