Unicorns in the Bible?

by on


This is Ken Ham, president of the brand-new family-friendly Ark Encounter attraction.


Did you know the Bible talks about a unicorn? Now, this wasn’t the mythical creature that we think of today. The Bible describes unicorns alongside animals we see every day—like dogs and horses.

You see, God uses unicorns as an example of great strength. If they were just legendary creatures, the point would have been completely lost. So we can be sure the unicorn was a real creature. But what was it?

Well, one possibility is that it was an extinct variety of rhinoceros. Such a creature would be strong, powerful, and would have only one horn!

Whatever the unicorn was, we know it was a real creature—one that teaches us about the power and strength of our Creator.
