Was the serpent of Genesis 3 a snake, or not?

To answer my own question, I'm not sure.

There are reasons for thinking either of these.

Although you wouldn't know it from the title, this blog post considers that question, and, like me, is not sure of the answer.

Thanks for reading.

The creation museum in Kentucky does a good job of portraying the serpent.

I believe it was in the tree and I believe it was Satan. Again this is something done well at CM.

Not sure if he was a "snake" in the garden as we understand snakes in gardens, but he sure was/is the "ancient serpent... who leads the whole world astray" (Revelation 12:9). I sure love that first scene in The Passion of the Christ movie, when Jesus stomps "the serpent's" head into the ground of Gethsemane with the heel of His foot.

Thanks, gentlemen. Whatever he/it was, it was an instrument of temptation.
