In every sermon and Sunday School lesson about Genesis 3, Eve was always the antagonist of the story. She was the one who disobeyed God, who communicated with the serpent, and who convinced Adam to eat the forbidden fruit. She’s the reason shame befell the human race and the reason God kicked them both out of the garden.
But what if Eve wasn’t the bad guy, so to speak?
What happens if we come back to this text with fresh eyes and a different hermeneutic?
