About Eve
Women of the Bible
Click Below for More Information
EVE (Heb. hawwah, life, living). The first woman, formed by God out of Adam's side. Adam designated her (Gen 2:23) as woman (Heb. ishshah) for she was taken out of man (Heb. ish). The way in which Eve was created and the designation "woman" emphasize also the intimacy, sacredness, and inseparability of the marital state, transcending even the relationship between children and parents (2:24). While the Scriptures uniformly trace the fall of the race to Adam's sin, the part Eve played in this tragedy is vividly portrayed in Genesis 3. Her greater weakness and susceptibility to temptation are juxtaposed with Adam's willful act of disobedience. Deceived by Satan, she ate of the fruit. Enamored of his wife, Adam chose to leave God for the one he had given him (2 Cor 11:3; 1 Tim 2:13).
