Pandora and Eve, First Ladies of Earth

March 27, 2014 , , ,

Pandora was created as a trophy bride for Prometheus’ younger brother, Epimetheus.  She was intentionally created of earth and water to play havoc with humans. The gods endowed her with super powers, thus worthy of her name which means all-gifted.  After her arrival at her husband’s house she opened her famous box (or jar) which was full of evil spirits.  Like Eve, she had orders to keep the box closed but her curiosity was too strong.  Unlike Eve, at the bottom of Pandora’s box one spirit remained, Elpis, the spirit or diamon of hope.  While the evil spirits escaped and forced man to do hard labor, just like the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, hope remained in Pandora’s box.  Her daughter, Pyrrha was the first mortal child born on earth.  Pyrrha and her husband survived the Great Deluge to repopulate the earth, not unlike Noah and his family.

Can you think of events in your life or in history that remind you of Pandora’s box?

dear Cousin Pamela-
Here is one of my favorite ladies from the past. I think you can put the reference in your search engine. It is worth looking at. My best. C. Rick

Luke 2:36-38
New International Version (NIV)

36 There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four.[a] She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.
