EVE: INFLUENTIAL GLIMPSES FROM HER STORY

Maretha M. Jacobs

Abstract


Having inherited Christianity and its institutional manifestations from their male
ancestors, whose voices were for many centuries, and are still, inextricably linked to
that of God, women only recently started to ask the all important why-questions
about the Christian religion, its origin and its effects on their lives. In this article a
look is taken at some glimpses from the mostly male story about Eve, by which
women’s lives were deeply influenced. By detecting the contexts, history, motivations
and interests behind aspects of this story, it is exposed for what it is: A male
construct or constructs and not “how it really was and is” about Eve and her female
descendants.
