The phrase 'son of destruction' is an alternative name for the 'son of perdition', which is used twice in the New Testament. Jesus used it when referring to His betrayer, Judas Iscariot, and Paul uses it as well when discussing the false Jewish messiah, Moshiach ben David; that is, the Anti-Christ, who may soon sit in the coming Third Temple in East Jerusalem, where he will declare himself 'God': "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled." John 17:12, KJV And also: "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" 2 Thessalonians 2:3, KJV The word 'perdition' is derived from the Greek word 'apoleia' which means 'destruction'. It is from this same Greek word that we get Apollyon, who ascends out of the Bottomless Pit.
