        The Greek and Roman supreme god. After the cure of the impotent man the people of Lystra called Barnabas (the more commanding in appearance) Jupiter and Paul (the speaker) Mercury, the god of eloquence (<441412> Acts 14:12,13, "Jupiter before the city," i.e. his temple was in front of the city). Antiochus Epiphanes (Daniel 8,11), the Old Testament antichrist, to subvert the Jewish religion, dedicated the temple of Jehovah at Jerusalem to the Greek Olympian Jupiter. (2 Macc. 6)
