Judge: Would you mind telling the court something about your circumstances
Adam: I was initially alone; began my life from scratch; my wife came later …we didn’t possess much.
Judge: Were you allowed to keep animals on the property?
Adam. Yes your Honour, we were allowed and kept all kinds of animals, sheep and lions, wolves and goats…
Judge: Were you aware of the fact that you were going to be asked to leave the garden?
Adam: No your Honour, it was a surprise both to my wife and to my self.
Judge: Did you sign any papers when you received the garden?
Adam: No your Honour, it was His Word
Judge: Did you make any improvements on the property while in the Garden.
Adam: There was no need; we pretty much got along with what was there.
Judge: At termination were you awarded any kind of severance?
Adam: No your Honour, We got a few skins and were asked to leave
And then He put that guard in front of the entrance.
Judge: How many years were you in possession of the property?
Adam: from the very beginning; I was born there; spent every day of my life in that place.
Judge: On the day of the event were you passing hunger?
Adam: No your Honour we got along fine with a few things off of a bush and a tree; honey was plenty and milk was never scarce.
Judge: How many apples did you say you took?
Adam: One! Your Honour. Just one! And I didn’t take more than one bite.
Judge: Do you have anything to say to your defence?
Adam: I didn’t know then what the consequences were going to be. Who would have thought that a bit of fruit would get you into so much trouble?
