    I noticed (in the Book of Revolation topic) that several people are knowledgeable about the Christian bible. So, some of you might be able to help me...

    I was just wondering, is the story of how Satan came to be found in the Christian bible?? Is there such story? If so, can you please state the specific book, chapter, verse, etc. I can find it in? If not, is there a book or site that has this story?

    I think it would be an interesting read...
    Thanks for your help!

    I get the whole good vs. evil, ying/yang, etc. My question dealt with the apperance of Satan's creation/history and weather the story is found in the Bible.

    Thanks for the sites Clint.

    One of them mentioned:
    Quote Originally Posted by [b

But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit. (Isaiah 14:12-15)

    However, although this passage might look like it is speaking about Satan it is not. Satan is actually not a prominent figure in the Bible (although some might argue that its presence can be seen throughout). Passages, such as the one quoted above, can sometimes be taken out of their original context and given a new meaning based on current Christian beliefs.
    It says that Satan is not a "prominent figure in the bible", and that his history is not completely clear. So, does this mean that the story of God creating him, him betraying god, then him falling to Earth and establishing his own kingdom (Hell) is not actually stated in the bible? The thing is, I actually want to read about his creation in the bible (if it is in there..)...


    Thanks again!

    He has many names.

    Did he establish his own kingdom? I thought god made it for him and the other fallen angels?


    He isn't IMO, a big figure in the bible.. He's the dude working behind the scenes.

    You might be interested in the Book of Enoch. It's not found the the bible, but long ago it was a big deal to people.
