Throughout the Old Testament, we see a figure referred to as Leviathan. Many claim that this creature is an alligator or crocodile of some kind. But Scripture seems to deem this creature to be much greater than that. God even compares His own strength to that of Leviathan’s in Job 41. So what is Leviathan? Could he be a spiritual being like Satan? Join ArieRashelle as she searches Scripture for the identity of Leviathan in her video, Leviathan.

Leviathan is a spiritual being, like Satan, that God uses to describe His own strength and power.

1 Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook or press down his tongue with a cord? Can you put a rope in his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? Will he make many pleas to you? Will he speak to you soft words? Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever? Will you play with him as with a bird, or will you put him on a leash for your girls? Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? Can you fill his skin with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? Lay your hands on him; remember the battle—you will not do it again! 9 Behold, the hope of a man is false; he is laid low even at the sight of him. 10 No one is so fierce that he dares to stir him up. Who then is he who can stand before me? 11 Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine.

Job 41:1-11
