Description

What or who is the serpent in the Garden of Eden?

 

Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

 

[Can serpents talk or is this meant to be symbolic only]?

 

2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

 

[Please research the definition of the word beguiled in the above verse. A good place to start is a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. Ezekiel chapter 28 is about Satan; it says in verse 13 that he was in Eden the garden of God. Wow]!

 

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

[That old serpent called the Devil and Satan. What does he do? Deceives the whole world. Wow]!

 

Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

 

[God is doing the binding here. Would He bind something that is only symbolic]?

 

I have included some of the other pertinent verses: Job 1:7 and 12; Job 2:2; Mark 1:13.

 

[Did God and Jesus converse with a symbolic entity]?

 

Food for thought: Some view Satan, the serpent and the Devil as just a symbol, principle or quality of evil that exists inside us. However, the Bible records a conversation between God and Satan. God is perfect, so he could not have been talking to an evil part of himself. (Deuteronomy 32:4) Likewise, Satan tempted Jesus, who is God in the flesh and free of sin. (Matthew 4:8-10; 1 John 3:5) Thus, the Bible shows that the Devil is real and not merely a personification of evil.

I try to let scripture explain scripture. Keep studying the entire Bible my friends.
