Question
I noticed that in the story of Adam and Eve, Adam only realizes he is naked after seeing that Eve is. I was wondering if there are other instances of this in the torah and what it has to say about self knowledge and corruption.
Answer
You must be looking at something other than the Bible which reads: "And the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew that they were naked" (Genesis 3 7).
