When you think of victorious women in the Bible, the one that's usually NOT brought to mind is Eve, as in Adam and Eve in the Garden, as in the one responsible for the Fall from Grace and all the tumult that that unleashed on the world. Well, despite Eve's one mistake (and it was a huge one) Sarah Jakes Roberts has "fallen in love" with her. It wasn't always so. Three years ago, she began to focus on Eve after vilifying her saying, "You had one job!" and complaining that she should have known better than to be seduced by Satan into eating the forbidden fruit. But then Jakes Roberts began to look at her own life; pregnant at 13, married then divorced she realized, she should have known better. After all, her father is the well-known mega-church pastor and mega businessman, Bishop T.D. Jakes. Only through God's grace could Eve become the hero. And she did. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Sarah Jakes Roberts talks about her new book, "Women Evolve: Break Up with Your Fears & Revolutionize Your Life" and how Eve's story is the narrative of victory for all women whose pasts have crippled their view of the future. Jakes Roberts unearths an exegesis of Eve's Divine role in the narrative of redemption, and how it is a battle cry of triumph for all women. Jakes Roberts herself now co-pastors two churches with her husband Toure' Roberts, founded the new Women Evolve Lifestyle Movement, and explains that the Bible's mandate "to be fruitful and multiply" doesn't just apply to bearing children, but to the cultivating of talents and the gifts God has given you for the flourishing of family and community.
