The story of Adam and Eve never mentions the post-Exilic Satan, instead having a serpent tempt Eve.

The serpent was more cunning than any other animal in the Garden. First, he called into question God's right to decide which fruit they could eat (Genesis 3:1): "Has God indeed said that you shall not eat from every tree in the garden?"

The serpent told Eve that she would not die from eating the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This impugned dishonesty in the motives of God, who had, in Eve's words, said that they would die if they ate of the tree.

Most importantly, the serpent told Eve that by eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, she and Adam would be like the gods, knowing both good and evil. According to Genesis, this was undoubtedly true, as once Adam and Eve had eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they were like gods (Genesis 3:22: "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us..."), but had also become aware of their mortality. This exposed God's hidden meaning and motives, showing that he did not want Adam and Eve to achieve their full potential, of knowing good and evil. Finally it created a self-awareness and a longing for knowledge.

Eve was tempted, and ate the fruit.


Genesis Ch. 3. Quote:- v4 And the serpent said unto the woman,(1)Ye shall not surely die:

v5 (2) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

These are the only words (Tactics) which Satan spoke to Eve. Thought I will agree that what has been said could be close to the truth.

By tempting Adam and Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit.

Christ overcame both physical death (through the resurrection) and spiritual death (by taking our sins upon him, enabling us to repent and reenter the presence of God).

Satan is a god. Not God almighty, but a god of evil and sin. The serpent was Satans man, without a mate. Which is why he mated with the woman to produce offspring of his own. His seed mixed with Adam's seed to take on human life form, which is why Adam named his wife Eve. The mother of all living.
