Transcript of Women in Old Testament Part 1

Finally Adam and Eve driven from the Garden Genesis 1:27So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1-3 – a Paradigm for Gender Relations? Creation of Man and Woman in the seven-day creation story Creation of Man in the Garden of Eden story 7then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The Temptation of Eve 18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.” The creation of woman in the Garden of Eden story 9But the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” Consequences of Eating the Fruit 21So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken.” 24Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed. 2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; 3but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.’“ 4But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die; 5for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. 7Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves. 11He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.” 16To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” Bless the Lord, O my soul, and
all that is within me, bless his holy name. http://prezi.com/aiszwrdu-gji/edit/#2_5452609 humankind In Hebrew: ADAM Human being without reference to gender Bless the Lord, O my soul, and


all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and


all that is within me, bless his holy name. So God created humankind in his image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. So God created humankind in his image,


in the image of God he created them;


male and female he created them. So God created humankind in his image,


in the image of God he created them;


male and female he created them. Hebrew: etzer Literally, "a partner corresponding to him." Chiasm The image of God is male and female. God does not need a girlfriend. So what did we learn? Innocence? Unawakened sexuality? Like children? careful consideration Where was Adam? How cruel is the story of Eve
What responsibility
It has in history.
For cruelty. Touch, where the feeling is most vulnerable
Unblameworthy - ah reckless - desiring children,
Touch there with a touch of pain?
Abominable.
Ah what cruelty,
In history. What misery.
Put up to barter,
The tender feelings
Buy her a husband to rule her
Fool her to marry a master
She must or rue it
The Lord said it. 1) The Gender of God What did we learn? 2) The Ambiguity of the Garden of Eden a) Who is to blame? b) The strength of Eve 3) The hierarchy tied to punishment for disobedience But surely, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
Psalm 54:6 The Lord is on my side to help me; [lit.: "as my helper"]
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
Psalm 118:7 ish ishah
