~ forgiveness and mercy:
We always think of Eve as the [bad] women who caused Adam to sin as a result of her disobedience (remember the apple she ate) and you will always hear people quoting "we have to endure so many hardships because of her" and we tend to always just reflect on the bad, the negative.
Then God showed the apple from another angle! That the apple (which represents her sin) should rather be seen as a symbol of God's forgiveness and Mercy.
Life after death..
So next time you eat an apple... baby think twice!
