Nachash: Seed of the Serpent | Run-time: 2 hours and 25 minutes
Nachash: Seed of the Serpent is part two of the Genesis study series from God in a Nutshell.
Join Trey Smith as he examines the identity of the serpent, or “Nachash,” which we read about in Genesis.
The viewer is taken on a journey exploring the origins and history of serpent worship throughout the ages, examining how this phenomenon is observable in both isolated tribes, and great empires of antiquity.
In Genesis 3, in the Garden of Eden it reads:
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, Did God really say, You must not eat from any tree in the garden?
The word for “serpent” ( נָחָשׁ ) in that passage is: Nachash.
Nachash, like many words in English, can be used as a noun, a verb or an adjective.
- As a noun, it means serpent.
- As a verb, it means to divine; the nachash means the diviner.
- As an adjective, it means shining; the nachash means the shining one.
