Lucifer, Leviathan, Lilith, and other Mysterious Creatures o

    By

    The bible is indeed a world of the strange and mysterious when it comes to the variety of creatures that are presented in its texts. These often times serve as images of good versus evil, or order versus chaos. Flat and narrowly myopic literal readings of the bible that at times lacks for imagination and creative insight to the bible's occasional and amazingly metaphorical maze fall far short of what is needed to appreciate the full depth of the biblical world's imagery. Therefore this work explores the meaning of the bible's mysterious creatures with an emphasis on three creatures that all appear in the book of the prophet Isaiah: Lucifer Isa 14:12, Leviathan Isa 27:1, and Lilith Isa 34:14. These mysterious creatures of the bible live on and can both inspire and cause fear. It is a marvelous mixed world of biblical metaphor and realism to be found in the likes of Lucifer, Leviathan, Lilith and the rest of the mysterious creatures that make a biblical appearance.
