Words of Comfort: Dinosaurs.


In the Book of Job, written around 4,000 year ago, God pointed out the largest creature He had made:
“Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him” (Job 40:15-19,KJV).

Some think that this may be a reference to the dinosaur:

1.       “He eateth grass as an ox.” The dinosaur was plant-eating.
2.       “His strength is in his loins [hips]…” The hips were the source of the dinosaur’s strength.
3.       “He moveth his tail like a cedar.” His tail was like a massive tree.
4.       “His bones are as strong pieces of brass…”
5.       “He is the chief of the ways of God.” This was the biggest creature God made. The recently discovered Supersaurus was more than 35 feet longer than the biggest whale.
6.       “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.” God brought this massive creature to extinction.  From, The Evidence Bible
