The dove was used as a symbol of the Holy Spirit at Jesus' baptism. Poor people could offer a bird instead of a lamb as a sacrificial offering. "And when the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses," Luke 2:22-24 says of Mary and Joseph, Jesus' parents, "they brought him up to Jerusalem to deliver him to the Lord and to offer a sacrifice... a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons." For the country of Israel, the dove was a religious symbol.
The rooster is a symbol of alertness as well as Saint Peter's emblem, as he turned down Jesus three times. "Again Peter rejected Him," John 18:27 says, "and a rooster began to crow at that point."
The peacock represents eternity and the immortality of the soul. It is stated that the body of a peacock does not decompose after death. In the Bible, the peacock is connected with emperors and monarchs, and it symbolizes wealth and success.
Symbolizes avarice and a longing for transient goods. It is mentioned in the Bible several times. Luke 17:37 asks, "Where, Lord?" They wanted to know more. He retorted, "Wherever there is a dead body, vultures will swarm. In Job 28:7, "All birds of prey are unaware of the hidden track, and no falcon's sight has ever seen it.
The eagle was frequently used in the Old Testament to encourage and stimulate Israel's troops, with its tremendous wings, terrible talons, sharp curved apex, and predatory tendencies. Exodus 19:5 is a passage from the book of Exodus. "You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagle's wings and brought you to me," he demonstrated with them in the trackless wilderness, when they repeatedly refused to trust God's care and judgment, as well as to observe his rules.
It is a representation of duality. It was expected that the first animal rescued from the ark would be like a dove. The raven appears frequently in the Bible, and many people believe it to be a Satanic symbol. Ravens, on the other hand, were capable of great good, such as feeding Moses while he was stranded in the desert.
Which other birds did you know were mentioned in the Bible but weren't listed above?
