Dinosaur described in Job? Why?

By 17/06/2012Bible Study

Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you. “Look at Behemoth,
which I made along with you
and which feeds on grass like an ox. What strength it has in its loins,
what power in the muscles of its belly! Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit. Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron. (Job 40:14-18 NIV)

So this description does sound very much like a dinosaur. I know that elephants and hippos don’t have tails like this.

My question is when was Job written.

It seems it could have been written by Moses or Solomon. Making it about 950 BC or more? Where dinosaurs around then? How does this fit in with say the great flood at 2400BC

What ever the case. God is very amazing and his creation is brilliant what is described here sounds tremendous. This then brings it all back to how marvellous our God is. He is so creative and wonderful.

Also it seems that God was describing to Job how powerful He is. Sometimes we need to be reminded of how vast and great God is.

Thoughts??
