(bee eel' zee buhb) (KJV, NIV) or BEELZEBUL (NAS, TEV, NRSV) Name for Satan in New Testament spelled differently in Greek manuscripts. The term is based on Hebrew Baal-zebub, “lord of the flies.” See Matthew 12:24 ). Jesus showed the contradictory nature of such a claim and turned the charge back on the Pharisees. He showed His power to cast out demons indicated God was at work, bringing in the kingdom of God. See Mark 3:22; Luke 11:15-26 .
