Genesis 3, Serpent

Question: I once heard a pastor say the the word serpant in the hebrew, has similarities with the word lucifer, and or light is that true?(javi) Answer: As far as I can tell, the words for serpent and lucifer are not related at all. Serpent: nachash-a hissing creature, a serpent, a snake. Lucifer: heylel-morning star or day star. However, Satan is called the "serpent of old" in Revelation 12:9 & 20:2. -PJ
