The world’s three most popular religions - Islam, Christianity, and Judaism - are all born from the same basic set of beliefs. Together they’re known as Abrahamic religions, and while they have diverged into many different belief systems, they do still have one thing in common: the dark figure of Samael. Often translated as Satan or the Grim Reaper, Samael is the all-powerful Archangel of Death.
There are many powerful angels and terrifying demons from the Bible, from Lucifer to Azazel, but Samael is the quintessential one, and it's because he's eternally loyal to his God. Thanks to all kinds of amazing religious translations, there are a ton of interesting facts about the Archangel Samael, like the time he wrestled with Jacob, the progenitor of Israel, or when he planted the Tree of Knowledge and tempted Adam and Eve to eat its fruit. Samael, whether you see him as good or evil, is one of the most fascinating angels in modern religion.
