From a Stage One Exegetical Essay …

Posted by NT Wrong on May 30, 2008

This appeared in a stage one exegesis of Genesis 3:

“The fact that the serpent is referred to as a wild animal, allows one to presume that God is referring to a snake. This proposes the question; could animals and humans once communicate with one another? In Genesis 11: 1 it says that ‘the whole world had one language and a common speech’. Perhaps this included animals too.” (sic)

    An extraordinary enlightened interpretation. Delilah and I of course have always communicated perfectly but don’t tell Jim. No meiows or English (French, German, Aramaic, Greek whatever) needed:-)
