“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.”
1 Timothy 2:14

For since, as the apostle tells us, “the woman being deceived, fell into transgression,”
and was by her disobedience foremost in the revolt from God,
for this reason she is the first witness of the resurrection.
This is so that she might retrieve by her faith in the resurrection the overthrow caused by her disobedience.
Indeed, by making herself at the beginning a minister and advocate to her husband of the counsels of the serpent,
she brought into human life the beginning of evil and its train of consequences.
Therefore, by ministering to his disciples the words of him who slew the rebel dragon,
she might become to men the guide of faith,
whereby with good reason the first proclamation of death is annulled.

Gregory of Nyssa
