In the book of Genesis 3, we are introduced to the serpent in the bible for the very first time. Here its portrayal is not generally considered a complimentary one. In fact, it is one in which he is fingered as the one who is responsible for introducing sin into the world of mankind. Is it possible however that there could be another way of looking at this interaction between man and the serpent? Could this perhaps be one of the dark sayings found in the bible?
