After Adam and Eve ate the fruit and had their eyes opened, they hid from God, making aprons of fig leaves. God called to them, and they said they
were ashamed because they were naked, and therefore hid. God said, "Who told you that you were naked?" I may be reading too much into the text,
but God seems surprised here. Further, I picture God doing a facepalm and saying, "Have you eaten of the tree...?!" This is said AS IF God did not
know how they knew they were naked. Theology says that God must have known, but there is a freshness in His initial reaction which tells us that He
was caught unawares. A God who exists outside of time caught unawares?! There is something mysterious going on here, or is it just God's way of
communicating with us on our own level?
With the initial reaction out of the way, God took decisive action. He put a curse on the Serpent, Adam & Eve, and the whole Creation. He told Adam
and Eve they would die, so He did know that beforehand. Once the initial jolt from almost timeless Eden to the march of history (His Story) had
begun, God was on top of everything, even ahead of everything, telling the end from the beginning, and inspiring prophets to tell the future in
exacting detail. Only the jolt caught Him off guard...
