Where in the bible


Where in the bible does it tell us about the fall of satan. I have heard that satan was suppose to have been one of God's favorite angels. Where in the bible does it imply this, or does it?


Revelation Ch 12 talks about the war in Heaven and Satan’s consequent fall along with the demons.


Ezekiel 28:12-19. In the tradition of the Church, this passage is about Satan.


The article on "Satan" in the Catholic Encyclopedia mentions several passages from Sacred Scripture that directly or indirectly relate to his fall.

That's a very fitting passage.
