Lightbringer In the OT the Hebrew word "Aaron" means "lightbringer". In the NT the Greek word "phosphoros" means "lightbringer". In the Latin Vulgate text "lucifer" means "lightbringer". In 2 Peter 1:19 "phosphoros" clearly refers to Jesus Christ, and it is mistranslated as "the day star". If we accept that the name "Lucifer" is an acceptable word in the English language, then the only possible correct translation in 2 Peter 1:19 is "Lucifer", in clear reference to Jesus Christ. See also the entries under "heylel", "Day Star' and "Lucifer". 2 Peter 1:19

Lucifer The Latin name "Lucifer" means "lightbringer". But the name "Lucifer" is a blatant mistranslation of the Hebrew word "heylel" in Isaiah 14:12. The word "heylel" really means "Mad Boaster" and not "lightbringer". It is the Hebrew name "Aaron" and the NT Greek word "phosphoros" that both mean "lightbringer" or "lucifer". See also the entries under "Heylel", "Day Star" and "Lightbringer". Isaiah 14:12
