Jews who read the Torah according to the triennial cycle of Torah reading read the parashah according to the following schedule: [51]

So while the Hebrew word nachash is clearly the word for common snakes, these commentators have concluded that the compound word saraphim nachashim should be translated “fiery flying serpents.” It would appear that the saraph was a reptilian, snake-like creature, distinguished from common snakes predominantly by its ability to fly. Although I can not be certain that the saraph is not some species unknown to us in either fossilized or extant animals, I believe that the pterosaur identification is most reasonable. Indeed this interpretation seems to fit the context quite well. These flying snakes, or pterosaurs, could have attacked and overcome the Israelites from the air. They would have formed an ideal picture of the Messiah, in that Christ was made like us (indeed made sin for us according to II Corinthians 5:21), but he was still fundamentally different (divine). The winged serpent incorporates simultaneously the appearance of the snake and the lofty ability of flight in a unique animal. Moreover, the outstretched pterosaur on the pole would have formed a perfect cross!
