Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith

We all know the creation story of Adam and Eve. It’s one of the first stories you learn as a child in Sunday School or as a new Christian. Even though many of us know of the creation story of Adam and Eve, does that mean that that’s the true story? Is there something more to the creation story that we’re missing? Was there another woman before Eve? Was Eve really Adam’s first wife, or was there another before her named Lilith? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find the truth behind the creation of man and woman in her video, Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith.

Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith

The Creation of Man and Woman

The Verse That Caused Confusion

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:26-27

The Explanation

Many believe that this is evidence that God created Adam and then his first wife, Lilith, and then finally Adam and Eve. This, however, doesn’t match Scripture, nor does this verse hint at that idea. Genesis 1:26-27 is simply saying that God created man first. He created man in His image and likeness. Then God explains that He created Adam and Eve, male and female. This follows the exact order of the Genesis 2 account of the creation of man and woman.
