[July 15, 2012 - I've noticed this post gets quite a bit of traffic. So, if you're interested in this fiery lion image, you may also be interested in these images, or our latest post, or this page. You'll never know unless you click. ; ) ]
I wish I could give the author of this digital photo-manipulation art credit for his/her work. The author was not named on the site where I found it. [July 15, 2012 - I found the author and original post.]
Does this evoke any biblical imagery in your imagination? I can’t think of any fiery lions in the Bible, but these images do come to mind:
- The Seraphim – fiery, angelic beings described in Isaiah 6:2ff.
- The Fourth Man – whom Nebuchadnezzar saw in the blazing furnace in Daniel 3:24ff.
- The Glorified Christ – whose eyes appeared to blaze like fire, and whose face shone like the sun in Matthew 17:1ff and Revelation 1:14ff.
- The Lion of the Tribe of Judah – who alone was worthy to open the seven-sealed scroll of God’s decrees in Revelation 5:5ff.
What biblical images does this call to your imagination?
