Biblical talk on shame begins with a reference of the absence of it. According to Gn. 2, 25 Man and his wife were created and lived naked, but they felt no shame in front of each other. By these words the Bible displays a relationship of total openness and undisturbed communication between man and woman. That relationship was changed because they violated God’s command and ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of life, persuaded by the cunning snake, which is God’s enemy.
After the sin, mutual relations were disrupted so that man and woman can no longer stand shamelessly naked in front of each other, or in front of God. Since shame burdens and often prevents communication, the problem is solved by clothes. What meant to be naked and not to feel shame before the sin, is achieved after the sin by putting on the clothes that God has given to us.
