Session 1 - Eve: Beginnings
What biblical woman more than Eve has shaped and influenced (for right or wrong) gender roles, images, stereotypes, and relations in our western civilization? The idea of Eve has also proved to be an effective commercial marketing tool for almost any product. Without taking a second look, a woman draped in vines, holding an apple, and accompanied by a serpent is easily identifiable as a stereotype of Eve in our contemporary North American culture.
In the Christian tradition, Eve is more typically viewed in a negative light as temptress and trickster rather than her foundational role as the mother of us all.
Through faithful exploration of the biblical narrative it is our task to unearth the life and story of this woman. We meet Eve as we bridge the generations and discover that we women today share similar stories and beginnings.
