Kaminsky: Paradise Regained 29 The connection between paradise, temple and Sinai can be found in texts such as 2 Bar. E. It is not this building that is in your midst now; it is that which will be revealed, with me, that was already prepared from the moment that I decided to create Paradise. And I showed it to Adam before he sinned. But when he transgressed the commandment, it was taken from him—as also Paradise. . Again I showed it to Moses on Mount Sinai when I showed him the likeness of the tabernacle and all its vessels.
It also indicates that the rabbinic concept of redemption is centered around the restoration of Israel to the state she had attained at Sinai, rather than being focused on undoing the consequences of Adam’s sin—because in many ways, Adam’s sin had already been undone. Inasmuch as God’s initial intent for all the nations to receive the Torah is left unfulfilled, the place of the nations in God’s redemptive plans remains somewhat unclear. Will only Israel be redeemed, or will Israel somehow mediate the Torah to others?

Strack and Günter Stemberger, Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash (Minneapolis: Fortress, 1992).
