New Eve


I need Scripture references and some websites supporting Mary as the New Eve, please

Thats all thank you very much.

  1. Genesis 3:23: Adam names Eve “WOMAN.”

  2. John 2:4 and John 19:26: Jesus refers to Mary as “WOMAN.”



For a real in-depth treatment of this issue, try reading Scott Hahn’s Hail, Holy Queen. It is very well researched with lots of NT and OT references. I checked it out at our tiny public libraray so it should be real easy to find.


This is from another apologetics web site, tho, i don’t remember which one off-hand.

**The New Eve: Genesis 3:14-15, Revelation 12:17, John 19:26 **

Gen. 3:14-15 “And the Lord said to the serpent…I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed.” This passage is called the Proto Evangelium or the Proto Gospel. Mary can be seen to fulfill this prophecy. This mention of the “seed of the woman” in scripture is unique. All other mention of seed always refers to man’s seed. But Jesus was born in the flesh of a woman, by the power of the Holy Spirit, not by the seed of a man. And Jesus although wounded by Satan on the cross, crushes the Serpents head by his resurrection. The special designation " woman" is mentioned 8 times in Genesis 3 and 8 times in Revelation 12. In additional this designation referring to Mary is mentioned in other important passages: John 2:3-5, John 19:26, Galatians 4:4.

Rev.12: 17 “And the dragon was angry with the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring.” Are you one of her offspring?

John 19:26 " When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold your mother!’ And from that moment the disciple took her to his own home." Are you a beloved disciple?

Mary is the New Eve, the mother of all the living in Christ Jesus according to the Spirit, just as Eve is “the mother of all the living” in Adam according to the flesh. Genesis 3:20

The first mention of Mary as the New Eve in early Christian writings comes in as early as 150 A.D. in the writings of Justin Martyr in his, Dialogues with Typho the Jew, and in the writings of Irenaeus of Lyon, Against Heresies, 189 A.D. By comparison the first mention of the term "Trinity " is found in the writings of Theopholus of Antioch, 181 A.D.

As indicated above, the New Testament fulfillment of Old Testament types are always superior to the Old Testament types that prefigure them. This is the major point of the Letter to the Hebrews. Eve was created in perfection but fell. Mary was created in perfection and did not fall. **Jesus is the New Adam (1 Cor. 15:45-49). **So the disobedience of Eve is undone by the obedience of Mary. Death entered through Eve’s acceptance of the word of the serpent and she conceived and brought forth sin and death in Adam’s sin. Mary accepted the word of God and conceived of the Holy Spirit and brought forth eternal Life in Christ Jesus and his obedience. Sin and death was the fruit of the tree where Eve stood. Jesus and eternal life is the fruit of the tree that was the cross of Calvary where Mary stood at the Crucifixion. The Tree of the knowledge of good and evil we are forbidden to eat of and leads to death, but the tree of life is now ours again.
