No demon has ever achieved as fantastic a career as Lilith. She began with the lowliest of origins. God created her from the dust of the earth alongside her intended mate, Adam. However, Lilith was a failed wife. She was not animated by the breath of God like Adam. Instead, she was preemptively animated by a Satanic mist which erupted from the ground. Lilith therefore bore the image of Lucifer, whereas Adam bore the image of God. Lilith rebelled against Adam and became the infamous Serpent who deceived Eve and caused Adam to fall. Because of her deed, God established eternal enmity between the Serpent Lilith and Eve, and between their seeds. Thus began the Bible´s most epic tale. According to God´s curse, Lilith´s firstborn seed would bruise the heel of Eve´s promised seed, Messiah, but Eve´s seed would revive to crush the head of the Serpent and slay her seed.

What Mark Biggs has accomplished with The Case for Lilith is sorely needed. His book finally explains the nearly inexplicable. He has taken the fantastic tale of Lilith and explained how each element of her legend came to be taught by the ancient rabbis based on their understanding of Biblical passages. Finaly, with The Case for Lilith, in one book is collected a coherent set of Biblical evidences that support all the critical facets of Lilith´s legend. But Biggs does not stop there. He embarks on a daring pursuit to establish links between Lilith and Biblical elements that go essentially undiscussed outside the Zohar. He boldly argues the intriguing ease that the infamous seed of the Serpent Lilith is Azazel, a demon in Leviticus to whom is sent the scapegoat of Yom Kippur. He also explores Azazel´s roots as the first Nephilim. According to Genesis the Nephilim were powerful giants created by fallen angels mating with the daughters of Adam. Biggs adeptly argues that Azazel was the unique product of these angels mating with Lilith.
