Bible Term: Antichrist

An antichrist is simply one who is against Christ (Jesus). As such, there were, are, and will be many antichrists.

The word antichrist only occurs four times in the Bible, all in John’s writings:
1 John 2:18, 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3, and 2 John 1:7.

Interestingly, antichrist does not appear in the book of Revelation, though the phrase, “the beast” is used often (as well as in Daniel’s prophecy: Daniel 7:11 and 19). Many consider the beast to be an antichrist or the Antichrist. The idea of an ultimate Antichrist is perpetuated in pop culture and movies.
