(a) of Christ, as "the morning star," figurative of the approach of the day when He will appear as the "sun of righteousness," to govern the earth in peace, an event to be preceded by the rapture of the Church, Rev 2:28; 22:16, the promise of the former to the overcomer being suggestive of some special personal interest in Himself and His authority;

(b) of the angels of the seven churches, Rev 1:16, 20; 2:1; 3:1;

(c) of certain false teachers, described as "wandering stars," Jud 1:13, as if the "stars," intended for light and guidance, became the means of deceit by irregular movements.

(a) in the sing. in Act 7:43, "the star of the god Rephan," RV, the symbol or "figure," probably of Saturn, worshipped as a god, apparently the same as Chiun in Amo 5:26 (Rephan being the Egyptian deity corresponding to Saturn, Chiun the Assyrian);

(b) in the plur., Luk 21:25; Act 27:20; Hbr 11:12.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
