    The Staff. The devil’s staff, which is encircled by a carved serpent, draws from the biblical symbol of the serpent as an evil demon. In the Book of Genesis, the serpent tempts Eve to taste the fruit from the forbidden tree, defying God’s will and bringing his wrath upon humanity. The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles #3) He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sadie Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all.

      What did you love best about The Serpent and the Staff? I loved the detailed account of how life might have been like during Old Testament Biblical times. Even though it was so long ago, there was love, intrigue, murder, corrupt government, war, many of the same problems and blessings that we have : Cherry Hill Publishing, LLC. With the bronze serpent we understand the serpent is not only related to a staff, but also more generally to the “vertical”, the pole, the ladder, the axis. The staff is only one facet of this vertical symbol. The first and primal version of this symbol is of course the tree.
