On A Relatively New Version of The Forbidden Tree Story in Holy Books
The story of the forbidden tree tasted by Adam and Eve in paradise is recorded in the Torah and the Qur'an with various similarities and differences. According to the Qur'an, the fall of Adam and his wife to the earth is due to a tree (fruit) that Allah forbids but was tasted by them by the devil's deceit. In the Torah version, the snake was presented as the tempter of the woman. The woman deceived by the snake ate from the forbidden fruit both herself and had the man eat it as well. At the end of the story, the snake, the man and the woman were punished. A relatively new version of the forbidden tree story in the Torah and the Qur'an was covered in an incident experienced by a prince who embarked on various adventures in search of the source of Nile River. In the narrative, although there are parallels to the version of the Qur'an, the motif of creation, which is the starting point in both old versions (Torah and Qur'an), was replaced by a mysterious journey. In this paper, a relatively new version of the "forbidden tree" story recorded in the Qur'an and the Torah will be introduced, and in this context, the relationship of the narrative in question with the holy books will be emphasized. Thus, a way of thinking about the trends of the archaic narratives tracing to these days and the continuity of the motifs in the narratives will be attempted to be formed.

Adam and Eve, forbidden tree, Nile River, apple, grape.
