About this Film
Genesis II | Nachash: Seed of the Serpent has a run-time of roughly 2 hours and 21 minutes.
Nachash: Seed of the Serpent is Part Two of the Genesis Documentary Study series by Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project. In this documentary, we will examine the identity of this serpent called the “Nachash”. This is the same serpent we read about in the Book of Genesis, chapter three. Also, we will take a journey into the origins and history of serpent worship throughout the ages and empires of the earth.
Nachash is about the Serpent in the Garden of Eden.
In this documentary, we will examine the identity of this serpent we find in Genesis 3. The word “Nachash” in Hebrew is what is being translated as “serpent” in the English Bible.
Beneath is a semi-short video presentation by Trey Smith about the Nachash. Many of these presentations for the films, as seen beneath, dive deeper into the subjects of the documentaries themselves. Please enjoy!

About the Nachash
In Genesis 3 it reads: Now the serpent (Nachash) was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made.
The word Nachash commonly translated as serpent has three (3) meanings in one:
As a noun, it means serpent.
As a verb, it means to be divine; or the diviner.
As an adjective, it means shining; or the shining one.
In Biblical Hebrew there is a strong connection between the ‘Nachash’ and dark supernatural forces. The Biblical Hebrew word for ‘sorcery’ or ‘witchcraft’ is serpent, meaning “Nachash”.
Although the intent behind the name Eden is unclear, any Hebrew audience would have heard it’s meaning as that of Paradise, Delight or Luxury.
What we do know is that Adam was created above all the other living creatures. God asked Adam to name the creatures, a position of co-authorship. God also describes Eden as a garden of endless abundance.
Infact, the Book of Genesis starts with mankind in Eden’s paradise needing nothing.
The Book of Genesis ends with mankind in a desert and about to be starving. And in that desert of Egypt the man they are going to turn to is a man in the bottom of Pharaoh’s prison who is still listening to the Creator.
Root עדן (‘eden) has to do with free exchange of broadly diverse information, services and goods — which is where wealth comes from, in the modern understanding of economy. Nouns עדן (‘eden), עדנה (‘edna) and מעדן (ma’adan) mean delight, finery or luxury. Adjective עדין (‘adin) means delightful or luxurious. Verb עדן (‘adan) means to luxuriate or to delight.
The Hebrew word adam is translated either as “man” or “Adam” depending on context and on the presence or lack of the definite article (“the” in English, ha in Hebrew). So “ha-adam“ is translated usually as “the man”
Adam also means “son of the red Earth.” Its meaning comes from the Hebrew word “adamah” meaning “earth,” from which Adam is said to be formed. So, Adam is additionally a Hebrew name meaning “son of the red Earth.”
In modern Hebrew Adam is: אדם
Above is the Hebrew Alef in ancient and modern form.
Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It represents God Himself, the silent letter that starts everything.
Interestingly it is also the same letter or symbol of the three (3) letter Hebrew word: Adam (אדם).
In Genesis 1:27 we read:
“God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them”
The image above is the word “Eve” in modern Hebrew. It begins with the Hebrew letter/symbol Chet, which is also the number eight (8).
Eight is the number of new beginnings. Eight is the number of people on Noah’s ark.
So, in the word “Eve” we start with the Chet חַ (new beginning), then the Vav וָ (the number of man), then the He ה (meaning “look” or “behold”.
The common meaning of Eve is life or “living”. It can also mean full of life and mother of life.
In Genesis 3 we are first introduced to the serpent. We are then told that this Serpent / Nachash is “crafty”.
The word crafty in Hebrew is: Arum (ערום). The word naked in Hebrew is also the word arum (עירום).
So, in Genesis 3: 1-7 you are learning that man had taken on a property of the Serpent/Nachash.
ALL glory goes to God alone.
This film is dedicated to all the men and women who spent countless years and persecutions or worse to collect the data and research in films like the one above. There has been a real fight against the authenticity of the ancient pages of the Torah and the Christian Bible. For many, such a fight has even cost their lives.
God bless each and every one of you on the other side of the screen.
