Who is Lucifer? Is he a fallen angel?

Because of Christian doctrine, many people are afraid of Lucifer, but “he” is a simple mythical motif based on the planet Venus, not a “fallen angel” or the Devil. The story of his “falling” is part of Venus mythology as well, an astrotheological motif. As always, please like, tweet and…

In January 2013, biased New Testament scholar Maurice Casey published an anti-mythicist rant called Jesus: Evidence and Argument or Mythicist Myths?
