the principal deity of the ancient Greeks and Romans. He was
worshipped by them under various epithets. Barnabas was
identified with this god by the Lycaonians (Acts 14:12), because
he was of stately and commanding presence, as they supposed
Jupiter to be. There was a temple dedicated to this god outside
the gates of Lystra (14:13). Bibliography Information Easton, Matthew George. M.A., D.D., "Biblical Meaning for 'Jupiter' Eastons Bible Dictionary". bible-history.com - Eastons; 1897.
