The Healing of the Israelites' Snake Bites through Moses' "Bronze
Frank P Russo - May 26, 2004
In my April 1963, "Communion R.I Competition"
I was asked by the Benevento Bishop/Archbishop, "Who tempted Adam and
Eve?" to which I replied, "It was Satan the Devil!"
The examiner was quite shocked and
excited… "Who told you that?" … "Well snakes don't
normally talk… and sure Balaam's ass spoke, but it was the Angel who
opened the means for the "donkey's" thoughts!" Along similar
lines, the last time I 'silenced' the Christadelphians. I told them that
their notion of the "intelligent" serpent, was rather silly! For
although the account mentions the "transparent" serpent, it is
obvious that whilst "nahas" (serpent) is the noun, the respective
verb "nahas" actually means "to practice divination, observed
This is obviously why the snake is
considered so evil! And the healings of the snake-serpents bites in the
wilderness has to be taken with a pinch of salt! "Palestine's" snakes were not the most poisonous…
furthermore this is evident from the 'Pauline Fable' to do with Malta. There never were poisonous snakes on the latter
island! The alternative in the "Numbers 21" narrative: might be
that the "Ferrous" emitted light by the snake might stimulate the
Ferric observation bright blood!
