Men Are That They Might Have Joy

So once we realize that eating the fruit = eating the bread in the temple feast of the shalems, and that afterwards the participants break forth in singing that is described as "joy," we can see that this famous passage is a temple text.  Is Lehi inventing this association, or when the shalems ate the fruit did they BOTH remember Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit AND ALSO look forward to the Lord as the fruit of the tree of life?
