Jews believe in The Satan, and not in the devil

Jews believe in The Satan, and not in the devil.

There is a difference between The Satan and the devil.

IN SHORT… For Jews, anything that even remotely conflicts with the idea that God is One and Indivisible will be rejected because it precludes true, pure, monotheism. The idea that there is a God in heaven above who fights against a god of the underworld, or hell, is not monotheism, however, it is the same duality found in other pagan faiths. The Bible speaks of a character known as The Satan, who acts like a prosecuting attorney, or a district attorney, in God’s court. However, The Satan has no power or authority in and of himself, rather he must get permission from the Judge, God, to do anything.

A FULL EXPLANATION… For Jews, anything that even remotely conflicts with the idea that God is One and Indivisible will be rejected because it precludes true, pure, monotheism. The idea that there is a God in heaven above who fights against a god of the underworld, or hell, is not monotheism. Other faiths had this same duality:

Greek: Zeus/Hades Roman: Jupiter/Pluto Christian: God/Devil

Now, of course, Judaism and the Bible tell of a character called, “The Satan.”
