Was Eve's death a consequence of the sin of Adam and not a direct result of her own sin?
In Romans 5:12, death is blamed as originating exclusively from Adam, and it is Adam from whom death has spread to everyone else ...Everyone else, which would literally include Eve.
12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned
The idea that human death originates exclusively from the sin of Adam may actually come from the original narrative.
In Gen 3, God declares, "because you have" done XYZ before naming the consequences of Adam and the serpent's actions, but not for Eve. To her, consequences are simply meted out without identifying her actions as the cause of it.
Also, only Adam is told he will return to the dust (die). Eve is not told she would return to dust, but it seems she is indirectly affected by consequences directly blamed by God on Adam.
Genesis 3:14-19 14 The Lord God said to the serpent,
"Because you have done this,
cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."
16 To the woman he said,
"I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."
17 And to Adam he said,
"Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, 'You shall not eat of it,' cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; 18 thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
It's as if, unlike Adam and the serpent, Eve is not fully responsible for her punishment though certainly, she played a part in it.
Lastly, we only see that God directly commanded Adam not to eat of the tree, and only Adam is told by God that he would die if he did (Eve not being around when he said this).
Genesis 2:17 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."
While Eve has somehow heard something about this command, it is a distortion of the original:
Genesis 3:3 but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
It's as if God sees death as ultimately Adam's responsibility to avoid and only directly commands him with avoiding it.
So, does Romans 5:12 and Genesis 2&3 narratively teach that Eve's death was ultimately contingent upon Adam's transgression and his punishment from God for that transgression and not as a direct consequence of Eve's sin?
The implications of this conceptually could cast greater light upon Adam's role in God's original creation and illuminate his parallels with Christ as the New Adam of the new creation.
