Eve, The Embodiment of Womanhood

Eve is the mother of us all. She is the one woman who embodied potentially all that is female. If you want to know what it is to be truly woman, look at Eve. You resemble her physically and spiritually, because, when she lived on the earth around 6000 years ago, you were in her loins. You, very literally, are her daughter.

(Genesis 1:26-28) Eve was made with Adam. God created Eve, as Adam, in the image of God, as the crown of creation, with true knowledge, Col. 3:10, true righteousness, Eph. 4:24, true holiness, Eph. 4:24, and dominion over all creation. She, with Adam, was commissioned by God to multiply, replenish the earth, subdue it, rule over it, and benefit from it under the word and blessing of God, the Creator. This Image and Mandate define the meaning of personhood for women, as well as men. Eve, with Adam, was to be a prophet, priest, and king under God in fulfilling the Dominion Mandate.
