Mythical Creatures in the Good Book (Article) - 3/29/2009 6:53:13 PM
It's true that most of the references to dragons are symbolic references to evil or the devil. But the term does seem to refer to a literal animal in Psalm 91:13 "Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet." (A footnote in my KJV indicates that adder should be read as "cobra" and dragon as "serpent." I say "why?" If God can give people power to trample on lions, why can't he give people the power to trample on dragons?) The unicorns seem to be more literal than the dragons. For example, in Job 39:9, God asks Job "will the unicorn be willing to serve thee?" And in Psalm 92:10, the psalmist rejoices "But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of a unicorn." (The footnotes indicate we should be thinking of wild oxen in these instances.) Just looking at an online concordance of the KJV, I counted six references to unicorns and five references to dragons (in addition to the numerous listings in the Book of Revelation, which are clearly symbolic).

Very interesting. Where are the verses that say these "mythical" creatures are in the Bible? Only the leviathan, a sea mammal, was mentioned there, while the dragon depicted in the Revelation is a description of Evil. I have an antique King James Bible of the original print, 1842, and I'm still looking for any "unicorn" or myths therein. Greek mythology (Bullfinch) and Christian literature never mix, I believe, as the other is fantasy while the later is truth. Cynthia
