From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luz is the name of two places in the Bible.

Luz also means "light" in Spanish.

Luz is the ancient name of a royal Canaanite city, connected with Bethel (Gen. 28:19; 35:6). It is debated among scholars whether Luz and Bethel represent one and the same town - the former the Canaanite name, and the latter the Hebrew name - or whether they were distinct places in proximity to each other.

Luz is also a town in the north, founded by "a man who came forth out of the city of Luz" (Judg. 1:26). It is identified by some with Luweiziyeh, 4 miles northwest of Banias, in the Golan Heights.
