When we think of the portrayal of Lucifer in the different texts films and religions there are many things that are common traits Using two different sources the movies End of Days 1999 directed by Peter Hyams and Devils Advocate 1997 directed by Taylor Hackford I will compare them to the Bible to show the ways that Lucifer or the more commonly known as Satan is portrayed both visually and behaviourally The first thing that needs to be explored is the way Lucifer is portrayed visually within these two references The first both chronologically and by importance would be the Bible Originally in the Garden of Eden Lucifer is portrayed a serpent with legs Nowhere in the Bible does it come right out and say that the serpent in the garden was actually Lucifer but it is heavily implied throughout the book that it was him After the serpent convinces Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit God says So the LORD God said to the serpent Because you have done this Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life Genesis 314 This is the first time Lucifer or at least what everyone is convinced is Lucifer is portrayed with a visual reference in the bible All throughout the bible Lucifer is given a serpent like appearance as in Revelations 202 And he laid hold on the dragon that old serpent which is the Devil and Satan and bound him a thousand years Revelations 202 In the movie End of Days you dont see Lucifer portrayed right off you merely hear his voice saying Behold the thousand years has ended and you have failed However before Lucifer is even portrayed in the movie there is a reference to the serpent form A child that he is destined to become betrothed
