|“||My Son, none of this is the fault of God. I thought He was wrong to cast us out, but... The truth is that He created a perfect world, without evil, without difficulty, hunger or sadness. But we had the choice, and because of us our innocence was extinguished, and since then sin dwells among us... Brother against brother, nation against nation, the human being against creation. We killed each other, we divided the world, we did it. Everything that was beautiful, everything that was good, we destroyed.||„|
|— Eve to Seth.|
Eve, also known as the First Woman, she was the woman born from the rib of the First Man Adam, being the female counterpart of Adam, with some saying that she personifies the feminine side of the Creator, while Adam personifies the masculine side. Eve was apart of one of the first human civilizations on Earth.
Eve was originally the same entity as Adam, when Primordial Man was still One and Androgyne, personifying the masculine and feminine side of God. After God Adam into two halves, Eve became the wife of the first man, although Lilith is generally believed to have come before Eve, there is a belief that the two were originally the same person, although neither has confirmed this.
Eve is known to have been deceived by the Serpent who was on the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and, by eating the forbidden fruit and giving the fruit to Adam, condemned all mankind to suffering. However, some believe that in fact, God was limiting Adam and Eve from knowledge, and what Eve did by eating the fruit was to allow mankind to be freed from the prison of Her Creator.
In any case, Adam and Eve were driven out of the Earthly Paradise known as the Garden of Eden, marking this as Creation's first act of rebellion against Its Creator, followed immediately by Lucifer's Rebellion in Paradise, although in fact another rebellion has already taken place long before provoked by the Arcuthas corrupted by Tathamet.
Although she is often portrayed as being blonde, Eve was actually a beautiful woman with red hair, a trait that was passed on to her daughter, Norea. In contrast to Adam who was a black-skinned man, Eve was white-skinned.
Powers and Abilities
Eve was created by God to be Adam's companion. However, she is also widely regarded as the "Woman of Sin" for succumbing the Devil's temptation in the form of a serpent into eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. She shares the fruit with Adam, and as a result the first creatures are expelled from the Garden of Eden. Usually it is shown to be Eve's fault in the traditional teachings.
Divine pronouncement of three judgments are then laid against all culprits. A judgement oracle and the nature of the crime is first laid upon the serpent, then Eve, and finally Adam. After the serpent is cursed by God, the woman receives a penalty that impacts two primary roles: childbearing and her subservient relationship to her husband. Adam's penalty thus follows. Both begged for forgiveness, which was given to them.
For her share in the transgression, Eve, and womankind after her, is sentenced to a life of sorrow and travail in childbirth. Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel, the first a tiller of the ground, the second a keeper of sheep. After the death of Abel, Eve gave birth to a third son, Seth, from whom Noah, and thus the whole of modern humanity, is descended. It is said that Eve had sons and daughters beyond just Cain, Abel, and Seth. Furthermore, possibly as a result of eating the Forbidden Fruit, others say that Eve was cursed with immortality and thus was forced to wander the Earth and never aging as the goddess Ītzpāpālōtl, it is unknown where she resides now, but if legend has it, her current whereabouts are in Mexico, but this cannot be possible, since according to mythology, she would be the mother of Mixcoatl, was the god of the hunt and identified with the Milky Way.
Urantia Book says; 76:5.5 Adam's life lasted 530 years; he died of what might be termed old age. His physical mechanism simply wore out; the process of disintegration gradually gained the upper hand over the process of repair, and the inevitable end came. It had been nineteen years since Eve had died of a weakened heart, that is, at the age of 511. Both were buried in the center of the temple of divine service that had been built according to their plans shortly after the walls of the colony were completed. From this originated the practice of burying notably pious men and women under the floor of the temples of worship.
Myths and Legends
|“||I've always been a bit of a rule breaker.||„|
|“||You humans are so simple and naive, couldn't even comprehend that a woman might be as complex as any other man. Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, Eve and Lilith might be more connected than what you thought they were? That a woman can be both a nuturer and a murderer? A creator and a destroyer?||„|
|“||Don't make me laugh Loki, I know more about being a scapegoat than you are. I am the original one, the first woman who committed the original sin that caused men to lose the earthly paradise and damned to a life of toil and servitude. You may have been the Aesir's scapegoat, but I am the scapegoat for all of the sins and evils committed by men, and so did my daughters and granddaughters and the daughters after them. Believe it or not, God isn't exactly a feminist...||„|
|— Eve to Loki|
|“||The woman ran away into the night, across the endless plain; the apple gem grew blacker as she ran and howled. She implored the One who had determined right and wrong, and made her with her desires, to show her mercy on her own foolishness before she died.
Some say the Creator sent an angel to take her pain away and carry her beyond the stars. Others say she found her son, and ate him to keep herself alive; finally she became Lilith, mother of demons.
