In Bible Vs Quran: At the end, Satan will be Punished or Rewarded?
In the Bible, Satan will be thrown down to the earthwith all his Angels.
In the Quran, Satan will talkthen will dwell in the Eternal Firewith his fellows.
The Bible says:
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”.
This is the end of Satan and his angels as the Bible claims
Would be this end suitable and equivalent to the one who deceives the whole world?
Is this end a punishment or a Reward for to the one who betrayed the Human beings?
Also, why Satan in the Bible is symbolized as being:
The great dragon which is a fictional creature or
The ancient serpent?
In addition, the Bible says that Satan has his Angels!
Herein, the Bible is mixing up between the Angels and the Satan helpers!
The original Greek word that has been translated to Angels in 22 different versions of the Bible is:” ἄγγελος “that is pronounced as aggelos,
Aggelos means a messenger, an envoy, an ambassador or the one, who is sent,
Also, Aggelos means an angel or a messenger from God.
Herein, the suitable translation of the original Greek word would be:
“and his messengers were cast out with him” or
“and his envoys were cast out with him” or
“and his ambassadors were cast out with him” or
“and his helpers were cast out with him”
It is interesting that only one out of 23 different versions of the Bible translates the Greek word “ἄγγελος“ suitably; it is:
Young’s Literal Translation: and his “messengers” were cast forth with him.
This is the only version among the other 22 different versions of the Bible that does not mix-up between the Angels and the Satan’s ambassadors.
On the other hand, Satan in the Quran is quite different than Satan in the Bible.
This needs a series of many successive articles for comparative study.
Anyway, at the end, Satan and his fellows will dwell, in the Hereafter, in the Eternal Fire; however, the Quran says that before he has dwelled in the Eternal Fire, Satan will have an interesting discourse (See verse 14:22).
Furthermore, the Angels in the Quran are pure creature; they never ever sin or follow Satan.
Now, we have two big issues or two important claims:
1) The Biblical scholars claim that the Quran is quoted from the Bible.
2) The Quran claims that the Bible is corrupted.
What do you believe?
The Bible, Revelation 12:9, in six different versions:
Young’s Literal Translation
and the great dragon was cast forth — the old serpent, who is called `Devil,’ and `the Adversary,’ who is leading astray the whole world — he was cast forth to the earth, and his messengers were cast forth with him.
New International Version, ©2010
The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
The great Dragon—ancient Serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, the one who led the whole earth astray—thrown out, and all his Angels thrown out with him, thrown down to earth.
And the huge dragon was cast down and out–that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him.
New Living Translation
This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.
King James Version
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
