And now for a different take on the Temptation story ... by Ferris Jabr
“And what variety of apples doth the tree grow?”
And the serpent, puzzled, said unto Eve, “They are God’s apples.”
“But are they McIntosh, Gala, Fuji?” Eve persisted. “Are they heirlooms?”
And the serpent, coiling himself in frustration, confessed that he did not possess such knowledge. But he said unto Eve, “They are the most delicious of all the fruits in the garden. Delicious red apples.”
“Red Delicious apples?” Eve said.
“Uh, yes,” the serpent answered.
