What does the bible say about mythical creatures
The Mythical Creatures Bible: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Mythical Creatures by Brenda RosenLove this!
A broad but comprehensive overview of interesting myths and legends. Maybe Im biased as well but I think the American myths are very D: and less colourful than the rest of the world. Really interesting also to learn that there are 9 types of Chinese dragons. Everything is symbolic of course.
My favourites so far:
The entire chapter on Water dwelling creatures
/edit the middle of the book was a little meh to me (demons,animal myth creatures)- pace picked up with the Egyptian and Greek and Meso(cant spell the entire word) and Chinese, Hindu creators of the world, deities and such.

The Most Horrific Beasts And Creatures Found In 'The Bible'
What's more, many of these Bible monsters are impacting nightmares and entertainment 20 centuries later. Mythical creatures in the Bible are often hybrids of other creatures or real animals. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces. One of the things that makes the locust plague truly scary is the possibility of it happening in the 21st century. You're unlikely to run into a vampire or Leviathan, but enough locusts to cover , square miles descended on Russia in
It spoke to them and helped explain something deeper that bland historical prose could never do. Below is a list of five such mythical creatures.

But are they real?
Are there mythical animals hidden within the pages of the King James Bible? Did any of these beasts actually exist? The names of mythical animals are indeed found within the Bible. Exotic creatures such as the Leviathan, dragons, unicorns and others appear in books written by Job the oldest in Scripture , Moses , King David, Isaiah, Ezekiel , and even the apostle John! Are such animal names the product of erroneously translated verses? Is it possible that some of the these believed mythical references are mentioning beasts that no longer exist?
Three intriguing words appear on the pages of Holy Writ—unicorns, dragons, and the Nephilim. Are these actually mythical creatures, and if so, what purpose would God have for placing them in Scripture—a book devoted to supernaturally presenting absolute Truth? Does their presence in the Bible discredit it as merely a book of fairy tales as many scoffers claim? From our 21st-century understanding presented in books and movies, we have come to think of this creature as a beautiful, magical, mythical horse. Thus, it has become an excuse for scoffers to dismiss the Bible as a book of fairy tales. This name is often applied to the rhinoceros. There is another species with two horns, the bicornis.
What does the Bible say about? For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. Because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Be sober-minded; be watchful.
