Adam and Eve

The Apocalypsis Mosis tells of how Satan used the serpent as a vessel to tempt Adam and Eve. The serpent tells him that he fears the Lord’s wraith, but Satan convinces him that he only has to be a vessel, it will be Satan speaking through him.

“And the devil spake to the serpent saying, Rise up, come to me and I will tell thee a word whereby thou mayst have profit.” And he arose and came to him. And the devil saith to him: “I hear that thou art wiser than all the beasts, and I have come to counsel thee. Why dost thou eat of Adam’s tares and not of paradise? Rise up and we will cause him to be cast out of paradise, even as we were cast out through him.” The serpent saith to him, “I fear lest the Lord be wroth with me.” The devil saith to him: “Fear not, only be my vessel and I will speak through thy mouth words to deceive him.” – Apocalypsis Mosis 16

This book then mentions that it was the devil that spoke through Eve that led Adam astray.

“For, when he came, I opened my mouth and the devil was speaking, and I began to exhort him and said, “Come hither, my Lord Adam, hearken to me and eat of the fruit of the tree of which God told us not to eat of it, and thou shalt be as a God.” – Apocalypsis Mosis 21:3
