A tale of three Apples

In his book, How to think like Steve Jobs, Daniel Smith notes a tweet from the time of Jobs' death, summarising how the history of the world has been defined by three apples,
'The one that Eve ate, the one that dropped on Newton's head, and the one that Steve built'
Now there are significant objections to that mantra, after all the Bible does not recall Eve eating an apple, but rather the 'fruit from a tree', and Steve Jobs is not the Saviour of the world (although some techie Apple freaks may believe he is), but with a little (a lot?) of imagination, the three apples do (sort of) fit nicely into the Bibilcal understanding of history,
Creation-Fall-Redemption.
I guess there might be an evangelistic talk in there somewhere!
