Dragons and the Bible

(Dragon image from http://cursedpegasus.webs.com/dragonsloveem.htm)

The term Dragon is mentioned numerous times in the Bible

“Dragons existed in ancient lore. However, the way I define the Dragon is different. In the Bible, when the Dragon is mentioned, it is usually in conjunction with desolation, destruction, and savage chaos. The Devil is usually associated with him. I read the scriptures and derive the Dragon as a single source of fear. From the very beginning, the Dragon has cast a terrible impression upon the consciouses of mankind. That is because everytime he comes the world is utterly destroyed. Civilization never forgot this. No wonder the Dragon is still symbolized around the globe. I also find it curious that the Dragon is sometimes paired with the owl. Let this be a warning.”

- B.K.Amodio
