As the first woman Eve had many firsts. As a matter of fact, everything she did was a first. Here is a look at some of the firsts that I thought of:
° First woman to live on the earth, she was never a child or a daughter.
° First wife
° First mother
° First grandmother
° First person to be attacked by Satan
° First and last woman to enjoy the Garden of Eden
° First dressmaker
° First women to received divine prophecy of the cross
° Only woman created without sin
° First mother to have a son who was a murderer
° First mother to have her son killed
° First to suffer heartache, anxiety and torments
Eve was referred to by different names in the Bible:
° Woman – taken out of man Gen 2:23
° Eve – life giver Gen 3:20
° Adam – mankind Gen 5:1
Eve’s life was no different than ours. She had many joyful moments but also had many heartbreaking moments. A brief summary of Eve’s life:
° Created for Adam by God (Gen 2:22)
° Lived in a beautiful garden (Gen 2:8)
° Tempted and deceived by Satan (Gen 3:1-6)
° Punished for sin of disobedience (Gen 3:16)
° Thrown out of garden of Eden (Gen 3:23-24)
° Cain killed Abel because of jealousy (Gen 4:3-8). Eve must have been heartbroken.
° She had another son, called him Seth (Gen 4:25)
° The Bible tells us that men from Seth’s lineage began to call on the Lord (Gen 4:26)
° Eve had Seth when her other sons were grown men.
° Adam and Eve had other children but it is not recorded in the Bible how many.
° We don’t know how long Eve lived but Gen 5:5 says Adam lived 930 years. Eve probably lived as long as Adam.
Have a blessed day,
