Genesis introduces us to the good of creation—the earthly paradise of
Adam and Eve. However, evil enters the picture, and the battle begins. Right when
it looks darkest, the promise is given—the Redeemer will come from the Woman.

In Genesis 2, creation is taking place, all in perfect order. Adam is in the
middle of a lush garden, yet he is alone. God “tills” Adam into existence from the
soil, fashioning him from the dirt. However, the woman, Eve, doesn’t come from
the lowly ground, she is created of something finer, the rib of Adam. She
completes creation; she is a helper to Adam; she compliments him; they live in
communion, in relationship. Everything is in perfect order with the creation of
Eve.  ~ Alyssa Bormes (Lesson One Reflection)
