Creation of Eve
Of all the mothers in the Bible, Eve was the first. She appears in Genesis and is also referenced by name twice in the New Testament. Though not “born” in the biological sense, Eve was made by God from one of Adam’s sides (or ribs) as an adult woman. She lived in the Garden of Eden as a wife and companion to her husband, Adam.
After God instructed Adam with the prohibition to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Eve, who most likely heard the prohibition, was tempted by the serpent to eat the forbidden fruit anyway.
She shared the fruit with Adam, and they were then expelled from Eden. Because of her disobedience, Eve’s consequences were pain in childbirth and submission to Adam. After Adam and Eve left the garden, Eve became the first mother when she gave birth to twin sons, Cain and Abel. She would go on to give birth to Seth—after the death of Abel—and other sons and daughters.
