Samael Angel

Samael is an angel in the Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore who is the accuser (Ha-Satan), seducer, and destroyer. He is also known as Smal, Smil, Samil, or Samiel (Mashhit). Even though some of his actions are similar to what Christians think of as Satan, he isn’t always bad because some of his actions, like destroying sinners, are seen as good, so he isn’t always bad. A person who is a member of heaven’s angels is called on to do a lot of things that aren’t very nice or pleasant. As a Jewish myth, one of Samael’s most important roles is that of satan’s most important angel and head of his demons. Even though he accepts the sins of people, he is still one of God’s servants. He is a big part of the storey of the Garden of Eden. In writings from the Second Temple period, he used a snake to make Adam and Eve fall. It isn’t Samael, but a camel-like animal that he rode. Cain’s father and Lilith’s partner are also thought to be him. It’s because he is a guardian angel and the ruler of Rome that he is the main enemy of Israel. It was already well-known that Samael was a representative of Christianity, because he lived in Rome. In some Gnostic cosmologies, the Demiurge, the person who made the world, took on the role of Samael, the source of evil. The Gnostic development of Samael is different from the Jewish development of Samael, in which Samael is just an angel and servant of God.
