Eve: The Mother of All Living

July 29

(Genesis 1:26-28 NIV) ""Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." {27} So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. {28} God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.""

(Genesis 3:20 NIV) "Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living."

Some years ago a group of geneticists made a startling discovery. From their study of mitochondrial DNA, they concluded that everyone living today is the descendent of a common mother. This one woman was literally, the mother of all living. Her DNA inhabits every human being alive today. That means she now has over seven billion blood relatives who are genetically related to her. The other shocking discovery was that she lived only about 200,000 years ago. This dating concerned many devoted evolutionists, and threatened their doctrine that declares the human family tree to be millions of years old. And while the research will continue, it would seem for now that science has discovered Genesis and has come face to face with the woman to whom Adam gave the name “Eve, because she would become the mother of all living”.
