Was Jesus a Unicorn?

Was Jesus a unicorn? Dare I say: YES!

In the early church days, the unicorn was interpreted as an allegory to Christ. This creature represented purity and love.

Jesus is a unicorn? What? Now this girl is getting really weird. Someone needs to slap this writer with a Bible.

An ancient Greek bestiary called the Physiologus, talks about how the unicorn is powerfully strong and extremely fierce. The only way to capture such a beast was if a virgin was nearby. This beautiful, strong beast would cuddle up in a virgin’s lap, and as the maiden suckled it, she would lead it to the king’s palace to most likely be slaughtered.

This is where people compared it to Christ—who came through the womb of a virgin and laid down His life for us.

The Maiden and the Unicorn by Domenichino

Jesus didn’t bow to the religious thinkers of His day. He brought a brand-new insight that people balked at—and they even said He was possessed by a demon.

It’s kind of funny to me how we box ourselves in—when Jesus Himself broke every box in the religious system at the time.

Jesus healed in unconventional ways.

How many times did Jesus break their rules? The religious leaders of that day watched Him with a critical eye. They were just waiting to pounce on Him about breaking the Sabbath.

Luke 6:6-11

6 On another Sabbath He entered the synagogue and was teaching; and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. 7 The scribes and the Pharisees were watching Him closely to see if He healed on the Sabbath, so that they might find reason to accuse Him. 8 But He knew what they were thinking, and He said to the man with the withered hand, “Get up and come forward!”

And he got up and came forward. 9 And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to destroy it?” 10 After looking around at them all, He said to him, “Stretch out your hand!” And he did so; and his hand was restored. 11 But they themselves were filled with rage, and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

When I picture Jesus doing this stuff I think, Man, Jesus was brave! He even knew what they were thinking, according to that scripture, and He did it anyways! Then they started to plot a way to take Him out.

Jesus was one ballsy unicorn.

In Luke 8:49-55 the story unfolds where Jairus’s daughter is proclaimed to be dead. Instead of faltering, Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid. Have faith, and she will be healed.”

Think about those words, “She will be healed.” She wasn’t sick anymore—she was dead. How could she be healed if she was dead? Apparently, Jesus didn’t view things the same as everyone else.

Jesus was a unicorn thinker in all its glory. He also healed the lepers—who were deemed untouchable as well. I want to get back to THAT Jesus. The one who was unafraid to express His belief, and show love the way it resonated with Him.

That’s what being a Unicorn is all about.

What if He’d bowed to the religious people’s ways in His day? What if He’d said, “Crap, I can’t raise dead people. I can’t heal on the Sabbath.” He would have never expressed His mission on this earth—to show Daddy God like no one else had.

My heart has really come back to Jesus—because I’m starting to see that He was brave, bold, and expressed who He saw Daddy God to be. What if He’d decided to be like all the others?

Instead, Jesus looked at the adulterer and said, “I don’t condemn you.” When in their law, she should have been stoned. Talk about a unicorn thinker. Reminds me of a Christian who uses angel cards—wink wink.

Jesus’ path wasn’t easy, and He certainly broke a lot of laws! What if your healing, mission, and inner work is being hindered simply because you have shut down the path God is trying to take you down?

Are you a unicorn like Jesus?

Unicorns in the BIBLE, Say WHAT?

 

Yes. I believe in unicorns.

Don’t you? What’s not to love about them? They’re a white horse with a horn coming out of their head, and rainbows shooting out of their cute, fluffy butts. Anything that burps out puffs of glitter is guaranteed to make you feel a little better about life.

Where did this unicorn idea come from? Did someone just say, “Hey, guys, I want to believe in a magical horse with a colorful horn.”

Blank stare.

“I saw a creature the other day that can poop Skittles. Legit story, bro.”

Smack!

The legend of the unicorn developed like any good myth—with something real. Let’s get ready to blow your mind.

Unicorns are in the Bible.

Wait, what? I can see your mind spinning even now. You’re probably thinking, this girl is cray-cray. There are definitely NOT unicorns in the Bible! Unicorns are make-believe frou-frou stuff for little girls. Well, darling, if you don’t believe me, let’s take a look.

Numbers 23:22

God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

Apparently, according to the Bible, unicorns are epic strong. They have to be in order to put up with everyone’s nonsense. These things are like the Hulk. Except not green and not an Avenger. And, let’s face it, they are way cuter. Sorry, Hulk.

All right, so one verse talks about unicorns, and now she’s talking about the Hulk? That doesn’t prove anything, right? This is just silly nonsense.

In that verse, they compared GOD Himself to a unicorn. There goes the manly card for God. Sorry, God, you are now a cute, white, fluffy horse with a horn. Oh, and You fart rainbows.

Oh my gosh, now she’s comparing GOD to a unicorn? This is just too much! God definitely does NOT fart rainbows!

Let’s read another scripture; this is getting fun now.

Job 39:9

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

No idea why you’d want a unicorn hanging out by your crib, but all right, Job. Maybe the unicorn was helping put the baby to sleep by looking at the kid with its big, beautiful, blue eyes? Glitter—sparkles—of course that could be it.

Among this verse, Job is talking about all kinds of animals, so whatever this thing was claimed to be, it was a real creature. As real as the other animals he listed such as a: wild goat, wild ass, peacock, ostrich, horse, and the grasshopper.

Deuteronomy 33:17

His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns:

I don’t know what a bullock is, but unicorns have a pretty epic horn coming out of their head. Great for stabbing people who annoy you throughout the day.

If you’re a unicorn, you do what you want.

No, you shouldn’t be stabbing people—that is bad doctrine.

I know what you’re thinking. Wait a second. This is real? And there are more scriptures still? Come on, unicorns in the Bible? This is a giant joke.

No joke, people. Unicorns are real. Jesus said so. Well, okay Jesus never mentioned unicorns, but I just had to say that. If Jesus could pick an animal for a pet, I’m pretty sure He’d pick a unicorn. I mean, who wouldn’t? They’re adorable, colorful, and can poop out ice-cream.

Job 39:10

Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? Or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

After reading some of those verses, is it really so crazy to believe unicorns are real? Not really. Open your heart up wide—let’s take a ride on the rainbows.
