God Saved More Animals than Humans from the Flood: What Can We Learn by Studying Them? When the "Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape like a dove" upon Christ, John could not contain himself and got to bare witness of the marvelous event. (Matt 3:16). The sheep is the emblem of the Christian. In Old Testament times, sheep were clean and edible, because they chewed the cud and had cloven hooves. So too are we sheep in Christ's sheepfold as we "chew the cud" and meditate on His Word. We also are "cloven-footed" as we live in this world, but our hearts long for Heaven. All The Animals of the Bible is the most complete reference book on the subject. A must for every student of the Bible, this reference book contains original Greek and Hebrew names as well as Strong concordance numbers and definitions.
