      Jeffrey:

      Take a look at Life of Adam and Eve 12-14, where Satan is jealous of
      the fact God made them in his image and asked him to give them his
      place. This fits the kind of portrait Philip mentioned at Qumran. I
      think it will be hard to make your case. The Jewish portrait is too
      consistently negative in too many strands. It would take some type of
      clearly neutralizing or positive reference to cancel out that
      cultural assumption.
