Eve’s story is perhaps the most iconic for all women, as she is the first of us, the one from whom all of us have come, and her story becomes, in a certain sense, the source of our stories as well.
First, we will lift back the mists of time and watch as God brought forth humanity as the Lord’s crowning act of all creation. Then we will enter into paradise, as it were, the birthplace of Eve, see the Serpent’s seduction, watch how the whole world changes, and conclude with Eve’s great losses and yet also her hope in God’s promised future Deliverer.
Eve’s story is iconic, it is epic, and to tell it well, needs two talks, following this outline of six divisions.
I Created in the Image of God, Genesis 1
II Communing in the Light of God, Genesis 2
III Calamity in the Garden of God, Genesis 3
III Cast Out from the Garden of God, Genesis 3
IV Cain, and the Children of Eve, Genesis 4
V Christ and the Course of Eve’s Story
