Genesis Week 1 ….The Serpent

Great discussion today.  Here are just a few of the things we learned about the serpent from our lesson:

He is a deceiver, Accuser of the Brethren, the Father of Lies,  Satan, the devil, the dragon.

He lies, murderer from the beginning, his seed will be enmity with the seed of the woman,

He will be bound for 1,000 years and then released to deceive the nations.

He is cursed.  He is more crafty than any other beast.

We read in Job that he need to get God’s permission to hurt Job.

Sons of God:

1121 – Ben : Sons of God ( for Angels)

Job 1: 6  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves

From Kelly’s Notes:

Job 1:6 – (see NIV text note here and on 2:1; 38:7)  They came as members of the heavenly council who stand int the presence of God.  (see 1 Kings 22:19 and note; Ps 89:5-7 ; Jer 23: 18 and note 22)   Satan. Lit. “the accuser” (see NIV text note; see also Rev. 12:10 and note) In Job the Hebrew for this word is always preceded by the definite article.  In the Hebrew 1 Chronicles 21:1 the article is not used because by then “Satan” had become a proper name

Job 38:7 See Ps. 148:2-3 and note on Ps. 65:13.  When the earth was created, the angels were there to sing the praises of the Creator, but Job was not (see vv. 4-5).  He should therefore not expect to be able to understand even lesser aspects of God’s plans for the world and for humankind.
