Some think the behemoth and leviathan of Job may have been the hippopotamus and crocodile...
People tend to look at the people back then almost as one dimensional cartoon characters. I’ve heard people say the bible is bogus because in the old testament insects are called “8 legged” because people didn’t know they had six legs. No, the people ATE them and were quite familiar with what they are and how they are constructed. It is just a red herring.
Same with this. They knew that a hippo or elephant’s tail is nothing like a “great cedar”. And it is pretty easy to kill either with the most basic of weapons. especially when a few guys get together.
The creatures described in Job are significantly more formidable.

Many things in scripture are given from a point of perspective. See what already has been discussed above before jumping in.

(Whatever promise that God has made, in Jesus it is yes. See my page.)
