Question

Where is Satan referred to as the snake?

Answer

The clearest examples of this are in Revelation 12:9 and 20:2 where Satan is called the "serpent of old," referring to his role in the Fall (Gen. 3). In the Fall, most theologians conclude that Satan possessed the serpent, not that the serpent was Satan's physical manifestation.
