    I’ve heard that leviathan is also commonly interpreted as symbolic of God himself.

    Neat topic, though I’m surprised none of the more bizarre, alien-like angels are mentioned, or the “four living creatures” covered in eyes who sing God’s praises. Those guys are pretty neat.

      But in Psalms, they say God crushes the heads of Leviathan. Why would God crush his own head?

      You will find unicorns in the Bible if you read the King James version. Newer translations have substituted “wild ox” because of linguistic discoveries since 1611. An illustrated article on the discoveries and translation of unicorn: http://www.alefpress.org/Blog%20Pages/unicorn.html

      I’m in a religious debate with a friend and she brought this up. It’s the first time I’ve heard about a few of these creatures and I have very little knowledge of them. Would you mind explaining about them?

    reality is stranger as fiction, some beasts are not matching the photos and some other are just idiomatic metaphors but the Bible is truly the Word of God! Praise Jesus!

    Personally, I think that nephilim are half-gods from ancient mythologies. Theory “sons of god” and “daughters of men” fits into mythological tales like ones of Zeus where he takes the role of Casanova of ancient times, having intercourse with human females, from which half-gods were born, like Hercules. It could be possible that gods from other mythologies had similiar actions with human females, which as a result had nephilim.

    The beasts of Revelations, when taken in context, are symbolic. Dragons are mentioned several times and is not specific to an animal. To call it a croc or a jackal is just as presumptuous as dragon. These translators are doing the very same thing the King James translators did.
