The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.
But for Adam[f] no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs[g] and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[h] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
I will be discussing about the scripture Genesis 2:18-25 but to begin with this we need to understand what literal means, it is to be factual and there is no room for interpretation everything is set out how it should be. In relation to this passage what it basically means is that women are made for men. But as catholics we need to challenge our selves and look beyond the words and look at this in a figurative manner and interpret it in a different way from the literal meanings. To do this properly we need to look at the context of when this was written, we need to look at the culture to get the context and more so we do need to look at who wrote it and for what purpose. Although if we were going to examine this passage literally we can get the following messages
The literal perception: Women come from men, Women are made for men, God put men before women and everything else including the nature and animals before women, men are the original template, women are just a version of men, even women name came from men, there is no originality in women. Everything about women is from men....
