Day Star The Greek word "Phosphoros" is only used in 2 Peter 1:19 in the New Testament, and it is almost universally mistranslated as "Day Star" or as "Morning Star" or as "the day dawn". This word is here used to refer to Jesus Christ. If we accept that the English language had such a word as "Lucifer", then the only possible way to translate "Phosphoros" into English is as 'Lucifer", since the Greek "Phosphoros" is 100% identical to the Latin "Lucifer", and neither of these two words has anything to do with "stars" or "days" or "morning". In this verse Peter called Jesus Christ "Lucifer". See also the entries under "Heylel" and "Lucifer". 2 Peter 1:19
