Does The Bible mention giraffes?
The Camelopardalis is mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy. The name translates as a description between a camel and a leopard, and some scholars had assumes that this was a description of the giraffe. However, other biblical scholars have argued that giraffes have never been indigenous to Israel or the surrounding area, and that the name probably refers to the mouflin, a wild sheep that lives in that area.
Other than this questionable reference, the bible does not mention giraffes.

"Cockatrice" (a poisonous snake) is mentioned four times in the King James version: Isaiah 11:8 Isaiah 14:29 Isaiah 59:5 Jeremiah 8:17 More modern translations use t…he word "viper."
Other countries ("other" than Israel) are indeed mentioned. Gen 41:54 .... the land of Egypt 1 Kin 11:25 .... and reigned over Syria. Gen 2:13 .... the whole land of Ethiopia…. Act 20:2 .... he came into Greece, Est 10:2 .... the kings of Media and Persia Eze 31:15 ...

The book of Genesis mentions birds, generically, several times in the first 7 chapters. The first mention of a specific species of bird is in Genesis 8: 6 "After forty days, N…oah opened a window and sent out a raven". Shortly afterwards, he sent out doves.
I'm afraid Felicia is not a name mentioned in the Bible.
No where. However, if you read Genesis (the disobedience of Adam and Eve) you will read that both of them, by eating from the fruit, let sin inside our world - gradually. And …today, sadly, the world has gone totally mad. But there is hope, just like the Pandora's Box myth. She let all the evil inside the world because she was curious. And so was Adam and Eve about the tree. But there will always remain one thing - hope. So as you can see there is a parallel drawing between them.
The Protestants and Catholics have mostly the same Bible. Most of the books in it are the same except for the Apocrypha. These are about 6-7 books which Catholics have in thei…r Bible. This is the main difference between the two Bibles.
In almost every book. Which is inhumanly curious since the 66 different books were written over a period of 1500 years, on different continents, in three languages, by people …most of whom knew norhing about the others from all walks of life: Kings, priests, farmers, fishermen, tanners, shepherds, men and women, young and old. But what is unique about this particular collection is that when the books are brought together they exhibit an underlying common theme and purpose all pointing toward a coming individual, a redeemer, whoi would come and suffer to reconcile the injured relationship with their loving but benevolent Creator...after the Jesus events (Messiah ben-Yosef) they all either point back to that event or forward to events based on that occurance...the historically validated fulfilled prophecies of the Bible have led many to realize its truth and fall on their face in prayer...may you realizing these truths be motivated to do the same (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; John 3:3-8; Acts 2:38...why...John 3:16) Second Answer: The word prayer is indicated by a search via the Strong's concordance to occur 117 times in biblical text (old and new testament). This does not account for the word prayers which appears 24 times using the same search method. The Second Answer Ends:
Many books are mentioned in today's bible that have been lost to the vagueries of time. These include: Book of the covenant, Book of Statutes, Book of Samuel, Book of Nathan, …Acts of Solomon, Shemaiah the Prophet, Book of Jehu, One of the Epistles to the Ephesians, Acts of Uziah, Annals of David.
No! it is never mentioned any in the Bible only its neighbor Persia.
The word "bible" is not in the Bible. The more proper name would be Holy Scriptures. The word "bible" is derived from the words for "book" in Latin and Greek. Answer In …reality, the word "bible" does not appear in the Bible as such. However the word bible comes from the Latin "Biblia" and the Greek "Biblion" which means book, so to say bible is to say book. The Hebrew word "cepher" defined as the art of writing alluding to scrolls, manuscripts or as we know them books. The Greek word biblios or biblion describes the entire bark of the papyrus plant which is used to make sheets or scrolls for the purpose of writing thereby referring to book/bible. Answer This is the nearest that I can find with reference to bible: The word "bible" is not in the Bible except on Bible binding, foreword, preface or Table of contents. Thanks to computers, we can now do word searches in a millisecond. If you run a word search within the scriptures of any version of the Bible except man-made Bibles, you will not find the word "Bible" anywhere. So, if the word "bible" isn't in the Bible, where did it come from and why do we use it to name this special book? Origin of the Word "Bible" and "Scripture" History Gubla (present-day Jbail in Lebanon) is a Phoenician town noted for its abundant papyrus. Before paper was derived from trees ancients used fibre from the stem of the papyrus plant upon which to write messages and documents. They rolled them up into safekeeping and handled these delicately due to their tendency to become brittle over time. Unlike wood and stone, which the ancients used for inscriptions, papyrus was lighter, easier to transport and certainly easier to use and keep. In 1200 B.C. the Greeks renamed the city Byblos from their word for book which by this time was made of papyrus. Since books were made from pages of papyrus and Gubla was the known world's center, they called the town Byblos. Later, Romans translated the word for book (Byblos) into the Latin Biblia, and it is this word which the English word "Bible" was derived. Jerome's Latin translation of the Bible is called the "Vulgate" from the Latin word Vulgate, meaning "common people." The common folk of the Roman Empire, who were literate, could only speak, read, and write in Latin, whereas only the elite could understand Greek and even fewer could read Hebrew. What, then, does the Bible call itself? The Biblical term for the Bible is "the Holy Scriptures" (2 Tim. 3:15, NKJV) or simply "the Scriptures" (John 5:39, NKJV). The term "Scriptures" or (literally, "writings") emphasizes the character of the Bible as a library. The Scriptures of this library are "holy" or set apart from others. They are the books recognized by the Church Christians) as inspired 0 Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words; neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written. Ezek. 37: 15-20 15 ¶ The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and dwrite upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 18 ¶ And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? 19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 20 ¶ And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
Updated Answer Islam is an Arabic word which means full submission and surrender to the one and only one God. In this sense, it is the call of all prophets from Noah, Abraha…m, Ismael, Isac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon,..., Jesus, and Mohamed (peace upon them all) In this sense Islam is the main teachings of all holy books including Torah, Bible, and Quran. However, if the question refers to Muslims as followers of prophet Mohamed, according to Quran revelation by God to him, then it is logic the Muslims are not mentioned in Bible since Prophet Mohamed received the first revelation from God through Angel Gabriel (Jibril) in year 610 AD. This means Islam religion breaching started around 600 years after Jesus Christ. Answer The Holy Bible is a Catholic/Chirtston Holy Book. It is not the Muslim's book. Answer Because Islam was founded about 500 years after Christianity. This is also the reason why Jesus is mentioned in the Koran. Jesus came first before Mohammed.
Paul the Apostle wrote a letter to the church at Ephesus. The people in this area were called the Ephesians. Many books of the Bible mention Ephesus, but Ephesians in particul…ar says it the most.

The word "Christian" is found three times in the Bible. The first is found in Acts chapter 11, verse 26. The second is located in Acts chapter 26, verse 28. The third and …final reference is in First Peter, chapter 4, verse 16. It was originally a derisive term which in Koine Greek means "Little Christ." Because the early Christians believed they were commanded to imitate Jesus Christ, they accepted and embraced the term.
