Genesis 3:20...

After this Adam called his wife's name Eve,

because she had to become the mother

of everyone living.


Eve...all of us women have inherited the traits passed on from this one woman,her guilt, innocence, deception, cunning and mischievousness. She was the last of God's earthly creations. Born from the rib of man and came to be Mother of all mankind.

I personally feel she was given a raw deal, but I'm not God.The Biblical accounts say that before God made Eve, there were already in existence "various beasts of the earth and flying creatures"Not to mention the Garden of Eden.

So apparently it was Adam's job to find proper names (Genesis 2:19 & 20)for other life forms around him. In doing so, he noticed he had no "mate" or "helper" amongst all that was surrounding him in this garden paradise. God noticing his servant's dismay puts him into a deep sleep.

(Geneisis 2:21 -23) When he is awaken he has, Eve. Now I can only imagine how beautiful she must have been, her being God's last earthly creation,perfect in every way. Excellently suited to being a compliment to her husband and to the forthcoming of children.


But in like most stories, tragedy strikes. In this garden paradise there are two trees of which Adam knew were forbidden. Notice the account in Genesis 2:16 & 17 it states;..."God laid this command upon the man"...notice that Eve is not mentioned here, to me it is apparent that she was nonexistent at this point in time, and that God spoke directly to Adam.

Through Biblical chronology it is assumed that Adam was on earth quite some time before Eve came into his life, therefore Adam would have been her teacher and would have warned her that these particular tree's were forbidden.

One day while Eve was out and about by herself and is close to the tree of "knowledge of good and bad", it is said that a snake spoke to Eve.(Genesis 3:1) It comes to mind that Eve being fairly new to these premises,would not have known that snakes could not speak and she proceeded to carry on a conversation with the snake. " it really so that God said you must not eat from every tree of the garden?" Eve goes on to tell the snake" for eating of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden,God has said, You must not eat from it, no, you must not touch it that you do not die. For God knows that in the very day of your eating from it your eyes are bound to be opened and you are bound to be like God, knowing good and bad."


Well we all know what happens next. The account goes on to say that she "entices" or "seduces" Adam to partake of the fruit, and he knows full well the consequences of his actions and turns around to blame God; "The woman whom you gave to be with me..."


Eve's punishment? The account goes on to say;"I shall greatly increase the pain of your pregnancy; in birth pangs you will bring forth children, and your craving will be for your husband, and he will dominate you." I, as a woman often think of the atrocities brought against us in the past and our present times, we have been called according to some as the "root of all evil"....

I will end this chapter on Eve with leaving you with a thought or two to ponder over.

In the first book of Tomothy 2:13&14 states"For Adam was formed first, then Eve. Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived..."

Do you think Eve was innocent?

Did her punishment fit the crime?

According to this account , God never promised immortality, but with thisact of disobedience, is this when we became mortal?

What of the other tree? "The Tree of Life", Genesis 3:24 tells of God posting

cherubs to guard this tree after Adam and Eve were cut off from the garden?


The questions could go on forever! I would love to hear your opinions or
