Meet Lilith, Adam’s First Wife that Nobody Wants to Talk About

By Trista

Many people hear the story about Adam and Eve. However, they rarely understand the story of Adam’s first wife, whose name is Lilith. In some religious texts, Lilith is believed to be the serpent in the Garden of Eden.

While less is known about Lilith than Eve, she is still a significant part of historic religious tests. She is believed to be the first woman and considered the first real feminist in history and created as an equal to Adam.

1. Lilith Is Proof Man And Woman Were Created At The Same Time

People often feel that Adam came before Eve. If you remember, Eve was created from a rib of Adam’s as this meant man was always supposed to protect a woman. While this story remains biblically correct, Lilith’s story proves that man and woman were created at the same time.

This proof shows up during the same time the Bible proves Lilith existed. In Genesis 1: 27, the King James version states, “And God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
