VFTB 9/18/22: Iron and Myth 8 – Dragons in the Bible

DRAGONS ARE make-believe—or so we’ve been told. So, why are they in the Bible?

Joining us for our monthly Iron and Myth series are Brian Godawa (www.godawa.com), author of Leviathan and Behemoth and screenwriter of the new film My Son Hunter (www.MySonHunter.com), which is making a splash despite not being a theatrical release, and Pastor Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods. Sadly, Dr. Judd Burton (www.burtonbeyond.com), author of Interview with the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim, was under the weather and couldn’t join us this month.

We discuss the biblical depictions of serpents and dragons, note that supernatural entities like dragons, satyrs, and goat-demons have been translated out of our modern English Bibles, and whether some of the entities traditionally called “angels” might be reptilian in appearance.
