    Lilith was Adam's first wife. They were created at the same time (from the dust of the earth) and she demanded equal treatement from Adam. He refused. So after a skuffle, God then created Eve. This is the origional story.

      Myth.  Might as well read the Iliad and the Odyssey if you're seeking entertainment.
      You will find all the info you need in the Bible.  Other writings trying to distract from that are simply that---distractions.
      I am often aghast at how people seek MORE from God's word instead of seeing the beauty and the simplicity of what He has given us to read.

        Lilith is found in the Jewish Bible. The creation story in the Holy Bible is a watered down version that was "Christianised" when Emporor Constantine commisioned the first Holy Bible to be writtten in the 3rd century. All these stories are myths and legends.

          Paul, sorry to say but you are speaking to the def there sad
          Jesus could come back and tell *certain* people that their religious texts were perverted and are decietful tools of the devil and they would start thinking Jesus was the devil trying to ruin their religion roll

          There are just some folk who don't actually think for themselves in preference to swallowing whatever they were given by that nice looking religion sales man.

            I realize that. I'm just courious to see how many people says that the Jewish version of creation is wrong and that the story in the Bible is correct, even though the Jews are the ones who wrote it to begin with.

        Lilith is found in the Jewish Bible and is the origional Adam and Eve story in which the story inthe Bible is based on.

          So are you saying Lilith is Eve?

          1. Paul Wingert profile image77
            Paul Wingertposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            No. The origional story of Adam and Even as written by the Jews, says that God created Adam and Lilith together from the dust of the earth. Lilith was Adam'f first wife and demanded equality. That didn't happen and Lilith was cast off. Then God created Eve and became his second wife.

    The story of Lilith is no more accurate or believable than the story of Adam and Eve. Where is the incontrovertible evidence of either?

      There is no evidence on any of these stories found in the Bible, Hebrew Bible, or Koran. These all were just that, stories and myths.

    I have always understood the Lilith story was part of hebrew legends or part of jewish mysticism.  I think you're misleading people here when you say it's part of the hebrew bible.  It was only in one line and even then it refers to lilith meaning night monster.  But I think Deborah might have a better handle on this since she knows this sort of stuff.
