What Is The Serpent In The Bible
The serpent is a symbol of Satan, who used it to deceive Adam and Eve into eating the forbidden fruit. The serpent is widely known as “the father of lies” and is often mentioned in the Garden of Eden story. The Bible also refers to other snakes, such as those found in Egypt or those used by Moses to heal the Israelites from snakebites during their Exodus from Egypt.
The serpent in the Bible is an animal that symbolizes lies and deception.
The serpent is a symbol for Satan, who is called “the father of lies” in modern scripture. The serpent was used as an instrument to deceive Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1–13). In the Garden of Eden story, God told Adam not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden. If he did so, he would die (Genesis 2:17). The serpent approached the woman while she was alone and deceived her by telling her that she could become wise if she ate fruit from the forbidden tree (Genesis 3:1–5). When she did not die, then both of them ate some fruit from it as well. Then God confronted them about their actions and cursed both man and animal with great sorrow because they had disobeyed His commands (Genesis 3:14–19).
The serpent is mentioned in the Garden of Eden story, where it enticed Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.
The serpent is a symbol for the Devil, Satan and Lucifer. In the book of Moses, it says that Satan took on the form of a serpent and tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit:
And I, God, said unto mine Only Begotten: Behold, here am I , send me, I will be thy son; and may have joy in thee, nevertheless thy soul became subject unto sadness ;
And it came to pass that Adam fell [into sin], he being cut off from the presence of the Lord [and] becometh as much unlike his Father as is possible… (Moses 4:22-23)
In addition to this account in Genesis 3:1-15 where Eve was tempted by Satan disguised as a snake (also called “a familiar spirit” or “an angel”), there’s also a passage in The Pearl of Great Price which describes how Satan (who’s name is given as Lucifer) tried to convince Abraham not to sacrifice his son Isaac at all—Abraham initially refused but then relented when God told him that He would send an angel so that he could kill Isaac Himself if need be (see Abraham 1). Finally there’s an account in D&C 132 which describes how Moses’ brother Aaron made two golden serpents after people complained about having been bitten by snakes sent by God during their time at Mount Horeb.
Adam and Eve were banished from Paradise after eating the fruit, which they did at the urging of a serpent.
God, who had given Adam and Eve the gift of free will and agency, allowed them to choose between good and evil. The serpent tempted Eve with the forbidden fruit, which she then ate and gave to Adam. God subsequently banished them from Paradise and they began their mortal journey on Earth.
The serpent was a symbol of Satan, who is called “the father of lies” in modern scripture. He would continue to tempt men with evil throughout history until Christ came down from heaven with his sacrifice on Calvary’s hill—and he still tempts us today!
God cursed snakes after they deceived Adam and Eve.
We know that snakes are still cursed, because God said so. In Genesis 3:14, He says to the snake:
“And the Lord God said unto the serpent…I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head.”
This is important because it means that snakes will always go on their belly (Genesis 3:14). And they’ll always eat dust (Isaiah 65:25).
Even though there was no direct punishment for the serpent, it was to go on its belly and be condemned to never stop eating dust.
The snake was cursed to crawl on its belly and eat dust for the rest of its life. It would be hated by all people, it would be cursed by God and all creatures.
Modern scripture makes it clear that Satan was the author of lies, who used the serpent as an instrument to deceive Adam and Eve.
The Bible makes it clear that Satan was the author of lies, who used the serpent as an instrument to deceive Adam and Eve. The serpent was cursed by God, condemned to go on its belly and eat dust for eternity (Genesis 3:14-15). As a result of this curse, the snake became a symbol for deception in human history.

The serpent is a symbol for Satan, who is called “the father of lies” in modern scripture. The word “serpent” in the Bible refers to all lies, and it also means deceit. It has similar meanings to the words “deceitful” and “cunning”.
The serpent was first used as a symbol by Adam and Eve after they were cast out of Eden because they ate from the forbidden tree (Genesis 3:1-5). They tried to blame someone else for their sin by saying that God had tricked them into eating it with his cunning words (3:4). This is when the snake became associated with deceit, lies, and cunningness.
The serpent is a symbol for Satan, who is called “the father of lies” in modern scripture. The story of Adam and Eve teaches us that we should be wary of lies and deception, as they have the power to lead us away from God’s path. The serpent represents this principle as well as our need for repentance when we stray from God’s will. Even though there was no direct punishment for the serpent, it was to go on its belly and be condemned to never stop eating dust–just like how we must repent if we want our sins forgiven by God!
