Women of the Bible: Eve

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27 

I thought I would look at some Bible women for the next few blogs. We can discover so much from women of the Bible. We can learn how to do things and we can learn how not to do things. The key is to apply what we learn.

Where should I start? Eve, the first woman, is the best place to start. Join me as I do a “mini” Bible study on Eve.

Eve lived “in the beginning” in a place called Eden, the exact location unknown but it may have been between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers near the Persian Gulf.

Let’s take a little imaginary journey. Pretend you just woke up. You look around, everything is a spectacular green. A few creatures on 4 legs come up to you, they feel soft and furry to the touch, and some even make amusing sounds. As you look around, your eyes start to focus, seeing objects you cannot explain, exquisite fruit, in amazing shapes and colors, in a magnificent garden. You see the absolutely gorgeous flowers with velvety pink and yellow petals. Blue sparkling water is rushing over rocks and pebbles through a garden in a little brook. Everything is new, new to you, new to everything around you. You are the first woman.

Picture a world where everything is new, colors, textures, sights, and sounds. Everything is perfect, no flaws, and no imperfections. No smog, no appliances, no cars, no stores, no houses, creation in its flawless condition. This is where Eve’s life began. God created Eve. She was a perfect woman in a perfect world. We cannot even begin to image what her life was like.

Join me the next time as I dig a little deeper into Eve’s life.

Have a blessed day,
