Bible Stories 019

Once again, I go off-text a bit and utilize other sources than Genesis. In this case, I'm setting up Milton's view that Satan entered the snake to tempt Adam and Eve, so I have to go ahead and introduce the concept of angels. Obviously, angels must have been created by God before "the beginning," so I'm squeezing them in here. If I had stuck with just the Genesis story as-told, I wouldn't have to mess with this stuff, but I do hope it will pay off.

The white angel asking for the dipped cone is Satan himself (though I wasn't sure at the time if this is what I intended), who appears in this form again in strip number 39. He's obviously the jealous angel God is talking about (and his "demonic" followers).
