Earliest manucripts that mention Satan

Postby Sword of Geddon on Wed Dec 06, 2006 4:00 pm

My friend doesn't believe Satan exists. He believes that the ancient greek documents say evil where today they say satan and that the devil was created by the Catholic church. I know he is wrong somehow(Holy Sprit). But I need concrite evidence to prove him wrong. Thankyou in advance.

Sword of Geddon,

Your friend has been misinformed. The Greek word "Satanas" appears 36 times in the ancient Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. I don't know where your friend got that from, but he could consult a concordance, such as The NIV Exhaustive Concordance, which says how many times the word appeared in the ancient manuscripts.
