Default Re: theological question: what are the other 'gods' that are talked about in the Bible?

Sorry Barbara, but the right interpretation of Elohim is the plural person of God, meaning the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit decided to create man. It has nothing to do with creation of other gods.

And when God says that he will put enemity between the seed of Eve and Satan, He was saying that eventually Eve would have a seed (a distant son, Jesus) who would defeat Satan. This is the first promise and prophecy about Jesus. The rest of the paragraph says that Satan would bite His heel, meaning he would hurt Jesus at the cross, but he would be crushed by Him (totally defeated at the end).
