The Story of Adam & Eve
Adam and Eve were the first man and woman.
In the Book of Genesis, God creates Adam from dust and places him in the Garden of Eden, where he is to have reign over the plants and animals. Eve is later created to be his companion. God places a tree in the garden which he prohibits Adam and Eve from eating. But a serpent tricks Eve into eating from it, and they are subsequently expelled from the garden for disobeying God and several hardships are issued.
The Story of Noah
God saw how great wickedness had become and decided to wipe mankind from the face of the Earth. However, one righteous man among all the people of that time, Noah, found favor in God's eyes. With specific instructions, God told Noah to build an ark for him and his family in preparation for a flood that would destroy everything on Earth.
God also instructed Noah to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, both male and female, and seven pairs of all the clean animals, along with every kind of food to be stored for the animals and his family while on the ark. Noah obeyed everything God commanded him to do. After the flood, God was pleased with the offerings and promised never again to destroy Earth again.
