Adam, Eve, and the Fall

  1. “Garden of Eden: Prototype Sanctuary”- Donald W. Parry. TAW: 126-151.

  2. Jolene Edmunds Rockwood. “Eve’s Role in Creation and the Fall.” In Women and the Power Within (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1991) 49-62.

    • This is an excellent article, though I believe she draws firmer conclusions than justified on creation. In absence of a detailed revelation on the process or nature of creation, prophets and apostles have expressed widely different opinions. See Creation.

    • The Old Testament does not teach the Fall and associated concepts as clearly as the Book of Mormon. Pritchett looks below the surface in this fascinating article.

  19. Matthew Brown, “Girded about with a Lambskin.” JBMS 6:2 (1997): 124-151.

    • “The publication of the Book of Mormon brought forward the first of many comparisons between the restorational work of the Prophet Joseph Smith and his surrounding environment, including Freemasonry. One point of comparison has been the lambskin apparel mentioned in 3 Nephi 4:7. I will suggest a possible connection between this item of apparel and ritual clothing that was worn in ancient Israel, Egypt, and Mesoamerica. I will also suggest a possible reason for the use of this item of clothing among the secret combinations in the Book of Mormon. Finally, I will discuss the lambskin apron used in Freemasonic ritual.”
