Eve was deceived, Adam was not?

“And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.” 1 Timothy 2:14

Adam wasn’t deceived? Adam sinned, therefore he must have been deceived on some level. Is it possible that Adam saw animal death and Eve had not? We can’t know. But the Serpent started with Eve. Some have commented that God created Adam first, then Eve. Satan worked the other direction. He subverted Eve first, who then subverted Adam. The point may be not that Adam wasn’t deceived, but that Adam was not directly deceived by the Deceiver, the Devil. Satan works in the opposite direction of God. “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.” Revelation 12:9
