My husband and I were discussing the Gospel reading and he asked why demons aren’t mentioned in the OT when they’re all over the New. Me: huh? They aren’t mentioned? While frantically trying to remember my studies of Genesis and Exodus and not finding any demon references in them. He said he’d tried to dig out references and there were hardly any from the OT. Me: maybe it grew it up in the inter-testamental period. Him (dubious). So… assuming he’s right, where does the concept of ‘demon’ come from that by NT times, everyone knows what they are? Do you know as a former Bible only Christian, or can you or your readers points to some reference material on this?
