“The LORD sent poisonous snakes among the people, and many Israelites were bitten and died.” (Numbers 21:6).

First, God is described as becoming “angry” and causing people to die as they ate the quail. Then, God opens up the earth to swallow Korah and his followers. Finally, God sends poisonous snakes!
Whatever happened to Satan in the Old Testament and why does this description of God seem so unlike Jesus?
