The biblical narrative spans thousands of years, focusing on the all-important, and often turbulent, relationship between God and His children. While the text of the Bible features stories of notable men, equally compelling are the tales of women. Some were deeply spiritual; others served as military leaders, prophetesses, and queens. A small number committed crimes, including murder. There were even a few who were first to perform a particular feat or to experience life-altering events. But among them all, Eve stands out as the woman who could claim the most significant “firsts.”
