These include appearances to Abraham, Hagar, Moses, Joshua (Joshua 5:13), Gideon (Judges 5:12), and the wife of Manoah (Judges 13:3). So it would not have taken long for Eve to conceive, yet Cain was not conceived until they were banished from the Garden. But thats not at all what is going on here.

With that being said, I agree with you that it is reasonable to infer that He spent time with them, but the Bible does not imply that He did, and that was the point of this post. Maybe their nakedness was not exposed genitalia, but realized they were naked in some other maner. To spend time with Him. God walking with people normally suggests closeness and intimacy and fellowship. But since God formed (literally squeezed into shape) Adam and breathed into his nostrils and removed one of his ribs and closed up the wound and walked in the garden and spoke to Adam and Eve (and then Cain later on) in a way they could easily understand, the assumption is unavoidable that God was physically there in tangible form.

Of course, Adam and Eve walked with God in the Garden, its written right there in Genesisumahis it 3?

Tim, thank you for your commentary. They hide among the trees. Now at that time there was an evil spirit called Satan. At the same time, Adam understood what God meant when He spoke to him, so there clearly was some preprogramming that occurred when God created him. However, the walk in these passages should probably be understood in a figurative sense. If youre interested, heres the link: https://answersingenesis.org/jesus-christ/incarnation/theophanies-in-the-old-testament/ I agree with you that we cannot say with certainty that God walked with them, I am just here to point out that the language suggests a repetitive habit of God. Just because Adam and Eve had no sin they still were not privileged to seeing God in physical form. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.".

Theres no definitive proof, but the passages implication seems clear to me. They probably werent in the garden for very long at allperhaps just a few days to a few weeks. The point was to urge Christians to pay closer attention to the text of Scripture. Totally agree with you to know that not everything was told to us, but take what we are told and use it for good, not for argument. Although Exodus established that God was present everywhere through the judgement on Egypt, it also taught that God would be present in a special way in the tabernacle (later to be replaced by the temple).
