lan´tērn ( φανός , phanós , φαίνω , phaı́nō , "to give light"): Lanterns were carried by the mob which arrested Jesus in Gethsemane ( John 18:3 , probably better "torches"). The word "lantern" in the time of early versions had a much wider significance than now. The Romans, however, had lanterns in the times of Christ, made by use of translucent skins, bladders, or thin plates of horn.
