518RE: [revelation-list] Morning star
- May 2, 2003Hi Pere
Morning star here is not exactly the same word as in 2 Peter though it may
have similar sense.
2 Peter 1:19 is phosphoros - bearer of light - lucifer in the Latin of
Cicero - so Aune points out. Curious that this title applied in Isaiah
14:12 to Lucifer is taken as a name by the speaker of this passage in Rev.
Rev 22:16 is part of the 'closing bracket' of the book, picking up the gift
noted in Rev 2:28. Aune points out that Rev 22:10-20 forms the epilogue of
Rev as a classically formed oration.
Aune has a page on the Messianic symbolism (1227) including the intriguing
comment that the Damascus document, alluding to Numbers 24:17, calls the
star (Messiah) the interpreter of Torah.
