And a certain Jew named Apollos (Ἀπολλῶς G625), born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. (Acts 18:24 - KJV)
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon (Ἀπολλύων G623). (Rev 9:11 - KJV)
I wounder if Apollo (Acts 18:24, Ἀπολλῶς), the Greek sun god and its possible connection to the "angel of the bottomless pit" as referenced in Revelation 9:11 Apollyon Ἀπολλύων .
Are they the very same deity?
Are the root word same and just different Greek suffix?
- Ἀπολλῶς - Apollos
- Ἀπολλύων - Apollyon
