What Insights Do The Behemoth and Leviathan Offer Regarding Dinosaurs in the Bible?
There are countless stories about dinosaurs in the Bible. While we can’t say with certainty that these creatures existed, their descriptions do suggest that they were real. Perhaps the best known examples come from the Book of Job, where you’ll find two animals mentioned by name: The behemoth and the leviathan
The Behemoth is a creature in the Bible. It’s also a real dinosaur. The biblical descriptions of this beast are remarkably accurate, describing its size and strength as well as its tail like a cedar tree and horns like those of a bull.
Behemoth lived during the time when God was creating Adam’s world (Genesis 1:25; Isaiah 40:20). But what does that mean? Was Behemoth created with all other creatures on Day Six or did he appear long after Adam was living on earth? We don’t know for sure because no one knows when he lived or died–or even where!
It’s possible that Behemoth was one of many dinosaurs that became extinct before humans ever walked upon this planet (see Job 40:15). However, another possibility exists: perhaps there are still undiscovered creatures roaming somewhere within our world today–creatures similar to those described in Job 40:15-24; 41:1-34; Psalm 74:14-17 (which speaks about Leviathan); Isaiah 27:1-6 (which mentions Rahab); Ezekiel 32:2-8 & 33:21 (where we find Tanninim).
The leviathan is a real dinosaur that lives in the sea. It is a great fish and dragon, as well as a serpent. The leviathan is massive in size, comparable to some modern whales or dolphins (though not all), but it also has scales like those found on reptiles and amphibians.
The Bible says that God created this creature on the fifth day after creating land animals such as birds, mammals and reptiles (Genesis 1:20). It seems unlikely that anyone would have been able to see such an enormous creature swimming around at sea level unless they were standing on top of Mount Ararat itself!
There are real dinosaurs in the Bible.
You may have heard of the behemoth and leviathan. They are real dinosaurs that lived in the water and on land, respectively. They were huge, terrifying creatures with great strength, intelligence and an ability to speak (in fact, they could both talk).
The Bible describes these two dinosaurs in detail: Behemoth has “a tail like a cedar tree” (Job 40:17), while Leviathan has scales covering its body so thick that no spear can penetrate it (Psalm 74:14). It’s no wonder why these two animals were so feared by people living at that time–they were huge! And there’s evidence to suggest they existed even before biblical times too…
We’ve seen that the biblical behemoth and leviathan are very likely to be real animals. While paleontologists may not agree on what these creatures were like or where they came from, there is no doubt that they existed at one point in history. The Bible tells us so! And if dinosaurs existed then, why couldn’t they exist now? We don’t know for sure if this is true or not (there are still some unanswered questions), but it certainly makes sense given what we know about evolution today.
