I thank you for reading the blog and for the kind comments you have sent and your own thinking on the matters presented here. Let’s have a little fun.
Today no one would dream of naming their son Lucifer! However, ancient Christians did name their sons Lucifer, and there was a well-known Christian named Lucifer (died c. 370). Why would any Christian parent give their son the name of Satan?!?
I received a question from someone who was studying Isa 14:12. I suspect the person had studied Greek but not Hebrew and was using the best tools he could use and had available. He was trying to do research on the Greek word ἑωσφόρος, heōsphoros. He had attempted to look it up in Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, but found that it was not there. So, he asked for help. The question involved the issue of what Isa 14:12 tells about Satan and why the KJV reads “Lucifer.” Here is an explanation.
