Goethe's Faust

Is Mephisto the same with Lucifer?

I didn't quite understand this. It confused me when the witch called him the devil. I mean, "THE devil" means Lucifer, right? Please enlighten me.

PS.: Sorry about my English. I am German.

In Faust, Mephistopheles is a subordinate demon to Lucifer.
