					             Eve


Principles of truth and righteousness
are understood more clearly when we
see them demonstrated in the lives of
    men and women of the Bible.
 There are three names applied to
           Adam’s wife
• Woman - Genesis 2:23 And Adam said,
  This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of
  my flesh: she shall be called Woman,
  because she was taken out of Man.
Both Eve and her husband are
        called “Adam”
Genesis 5:2 Male and female
created he them; and blessed
 them, and called their name
 Adam, in the day when they
        were created.
Eve - Genesis 3:20 ¶And Adam
  called his wife's name Eve;
because she was the mother of
            all living.
 Eve was the first woman to live on
            the earth.
• She was “born” a perfect, full grown
  woman.
• She was never a child, a daughter, or a
  maiden.
• The bride at a wedding walks down the
  aisle adorned in her beautiful wedding
  dress – How do you suppose Adam felt
  when he saw Eve for the first time?
 Eve was the first to be tempted by
           Satan to sin.
• He did not tell her to sin, but he reminded
  her of the restrictions placed upon her.
• We are tempted to rebel against
  restrictions.
• She exaggerated God’s restrictions –
  Genesis 3:3
She implied the punishment for sin
     was not all that certain.
• Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the
  knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not
  eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest
  thereof thou shalt surely die.
• Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree
  which is in the midst of the garden, God
  hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither
  shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Satan tempted her through the lust
 of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
        and the pride of life.
• Appeal to the flesh – And when the
  woman saw that the tree was good for
  food…”
• “…and that it was pleasant to the eyes” –
  there is the lust to the eyes.
• “…and a tree to be desired to make one
  wise” – here is an appeal to pride.
 Eve allowed Satan to use her.
• Satan might not have ever been able to
  succeed in getting Adam to sin, had he not
  used Eve. (Luke 17:1,2; Romans 14:13)
• This suggests the great power of womanly
  influence both for good and bad.
• Eve was created to be Adam’s helper, but
  she became his hinderer.
      Eve was deceived in the
           transgression
• I Timothy 2:14
• Was she deceived into thinking that God
  said something he didn’t say?
• One of greatest problems of man is
  thinking God doesn’t mean what he says.
 We believe that Eve was forgiven
• Genesis 3:21 –skins probably came from
  sacrifices offered.
• They were forgiven but suffered consequences
• All sin can be forgiven but consequences often
  are suffered as a result of the sin
• There are many sins that consequences can
  never be escaped
   Eve was not bitter against God
      because of her lot in life
• Birth of first son – Genesis 4:1
• Additional sons – Genesis 4:25
• She could have spent the rest of her life
  grieving and mourning about past
  mistakes, but she didn’t
• Philippians 3:13-14
     Eve shows how one can be
             tempted
• Temptation is the common to of us all, and we
  should each learn from Eve and guard against
  the enticement of sin.




• Woman has the power of curse or blessing over
  man’s life.
