Beelzebub

 

the name assigned in the New Testament to the chief of the demons. The equivalent of Beelzebub in the Old Testament is Baalzebub (Baalzebul), a god in the Philistine city of Ekron. In Jewish mythological and religious thought Baalzebub apparently was gradually transformed from the god of a people hostile to the Jews into one of the most important figures in Jewish demonology. Later, as Christianity evolved from Judaism, he became a major figure in early Christian demonology.
