Feast 24 December

In the Book of Genesis, Eve was created by God by taking a the rib from Adam, to be Adam's companion.

Adam is charged with guarding and keeping the Garden of Eden before her creation; she is not present when God commands Adam not to eat the forbidden fruit.

Even though she is aware that she is not allowed to eat the fruit a snake convinces Eve to eat it anyway. She then gives it to Adam who also eats it. They then realize they are naked.

An angel is then sent to banish her and Adam from the garden so that they can’t eat the fruit of The Tree of Life and live forever.

God gives them clothes and says that Eve will become the mother of all humans and be very respected but that her husband will rule over her. Eve gives birth to a son and she names him Cain. She then gives birth to a second son named Abel.
