Preparation Information:
In this exercise, you will interpret Genesis 1-3 through Popular Culture. Please address the following questions in about 2-3 pages, double space. The format of the answer does not matter (your choice). Post your work to Canvas by class time, and be ready to share your findings with the class.
Compare the creation stories in Genesis 1-3 with the elements of the story presented in Bob Marley’s songs, “Adam and Eve, “and “We and Dem,” and Esther Friedman’s music, “Eve’s Lament. “The Lyrics for Marley’s songs are also provided. (See Canvas Modules). Outline the similarities and differences between the Genesis narrative and the artists’ interpretation of the Genesis story. What do the differences suggest about the Bible and its use in popular culture?
In other words, what do the biblical stories tell us about the beginning of the world, the nature and role of human beings, the relationship between human beings (male and female), the environment, and its role in society? How do they compare to Bob Marley’s and Esther Friedman’s songs?
Here is more guidance on how one could go about it:
Bob Marley, “We and Dem” (Reggae, 1980)
Discuss the central message of Bob Marley’s “We and Dem.” How is it related to the Genesis creation story, especially Genesis 1:26-30? What lessons does it intend to give? What does Marley suggest about the relevance of the Genesis story?
Esther, Eve’s Lament (Folk, 2001).
This song discusses Eve’s perspective from multiple points of view. What are Eve’s wonders, and why is her worry significant? Pick up some phrases in Eve’s story and discuss the questions it raises and their relevance?
Bob Marley, “Adam and Eve” (Reggae 1975)
This song has several extra-biblical observations. Identify them. Do you agree or not with the statements? Why? Why not? What can we learn from the biblical Genesis story and Marley’s interpretation of the song?

This is the lyrics of “we and dem”.
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out, oy!
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out.
But someone will ‘ave to pay
For the innocent blood
That they shed every day,
Oh, children, mark my word;
It’s what the Bible say, yeah!

Oh, we no know how we and dem a-go work this out;
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out.
But in the beginning jah created everythin’ (oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh),
Givin’ man dominion over all things.
But now it’s too late,
You see, men has lost their faith (oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh), hey-ey-hey!
Eating up all the flesh from off the earth, eh!
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know);
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we don’t know);
Dub-da-dub-da-dub!
Dub-a-dippidi-doop -de-doo!

Num-a-nummana-num-da-nay!
Dippy- dippy-dippy: dip-de-dub-de-day!
Dip-a-dubbada-dub-da-day!
But I say: we no know how we and dem a-go work it out:
Them a flesh and bone!
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out.
But we now have no friends
In-a high society, yea-a-eah!
We no have no friends;
Oh, mark my identity;
We no have no friends.
oh-oh!
yeah!
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we no know);
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know);
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out (no, we don’t know);
(We no know how we and dem a-go work this out.) rasta!
(We no know how we and dem a-go work this out.) ilyabom!
