Satan as a Person in the Tanakh
rungold315 Wrote:In the Aramaic Tanakh, is "ha satan" a person, or just another word for an advesary? Im having trouble figuring out whether Satan is mentioned in any OT scripture as an individual person, and not just a term. There are a lot of misconceptions about scripture that supposedly refers to him, but doesnt.

The most direct reference to Satan in the Tanakh is in Job chapter 1. He is called "Ha Satan" (THE Adversary). Akhi Paul was right that "satan/satanas" simply means "adversary" and that anyone can be an adversary. However when you see "THE adversary" it is refering to the prince of darkness, the evil one, who definately a personal being.
