Originally the name ‘Eve’ was related to the word for ‘life’, and this was why Adam gave the name to his wife. She was ‘the mother of all living’ (Genesis 3:20). God gave her to Adam as one equal with him in nature but opposite to him in sex, to be his companion and counterpart (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:18-25). However, she too readily listened to the temptations of Satan and is blamed for leading Adam into sin (Genesis 3:1-7; 2 Corinthians 11:3; 1 Timothy 2:13-15; see ADAM).
