The name of the first woman, wife of Adam.

Fruit Tree

God said you shall not
eat from the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil.

4th cent. mosaic
from Caesarea

God placed Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. A serpent enticed Eve to eat fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil by telling Eve that she would become like God, knowing good and evil. After eating, she gave some of the fruit to her husband Adam who also ate it. Because of her disobedience God said that Eve's pain in childbearing would increase. To prevent Adam and Eve from eating of the tree of life so that they would live forever, God drove them out of the garden of Eden. Eve was the mother of Cain and Abel.
