Are There Zombies in the Bible - by Jeremy Binns

Are There Zombies in the Bible?

Are There Zombies in the Bible???

Most of us already know that the Bible is full of prophecies.  According to one article I read recently, there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,500 of them – of those, the article claimed that 2,000 had already been fulfilled.  So the fact that we should take this stuff very, very, very, very, very seriously should be obvious to anyone with the slightest bit of common sense.

So are there zombies in the bible?  In all honesty, up until around a year ago I would have dismissed the idea without even a second though.  Foolishness to be certain!  That is until I came across a verse that left me wondering, what if…

12 Now this will be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. 13 It will come about in that day that a great panic from the Lord will fall on them; and they will seize one another’s hand, and the hand of one will be lifted against the hand of another. – Zechariah 14:12-13

This passage comes from the Book of Zechariah 14:12-13, which is a prophetic book in the Old Testament.  Many of the prophecies contained in this book deal with the coming of Jesus, and were remarkably fulfilled by His life, death, and resurrection.  Some of the passages however, deal with times yet to come.  (I’m not a theologian, but most people tend to agree with me on that.)

So what if this is the real Zombie Verse in the Bible?  I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard of flesh rotting while people are still standing on their feet.  Usually that happens while they’re cold, dead, and lying in a grave somewhere.  Oh, and then you have the whole attacking their neighbors thing.  Definitely sounds like zombies to me!!!

So I’ll ask you, Are There Zombies in the Bible?

Do you have an opinion on this verse?  Share it with the rest of us in the comment section below!

Update*  After tweeting this article to Pastor Mark Driscoll, he wrote a long article titled, ‘Satan Demons and Zombies – Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Satan Demons and Zombies But Were Afraid To Ask.‘  It’s a terrific post full of biblical facts.  Check it out!

I can’t say definitively that he got the inspiration from this post, but it was nice timing.  :)  He is a relevant and gifted writer / speaker.  While you’re there, check out some of his other articles and videos.

Calling Grey*****I’ll leave my personal opinion in the comment section of this article in a few days.  In the meantime, if you’re a fan of zombies, then please check out the book that I’m currently working on.  You can read it for free right here on the website.  The Title is ‘Calling Grey – A Carrion Book’.  It’s full of undead mayhem that is sure to excite all of you zombie crazed fans.Calling Grey – A Carrion Book

    I read the same verse a while back and it really made me think. If it hasn’t been fulfilled then it will happen and that’s kids scary lol. But I like the article

  • St.Doval

    Most people think this is a reference to a Neutron Bomb attack that dissolves people and does not knock down structures and does not leave radiation so that when the Kings of the North attack USA (jerUSA!em) they can take over in 10 days and all structures are preserved and ready for the new tenants.

  • St.Doval

    This I think this scripture is reference to zombies: Matthew 27:52-53
    “and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”So that in the future when the dead in Christ meet Christ in the sky and then the living. What about the dead out of Christ? Do they rise? Or what about the tribulation period…do just the people who are living at the time of the tribulation do they ONLY have to endure the tribulation? What about the people who crucified Jesus & he told them that THEY will see him come in the clouds, but since they have been dead for 2000+ years they would have to be resurrected to go through the tribulation period that has not happened yet. So that when all the “true” Christians are raptured away and only the LEFT BEHIND are here why should only they have to endure the end day trib. SO the demonic deception of the Zombie talk is when the dead out of Christ rise and might get a “2nd” chance but we are taught to chop off heads of Zombies & Satan likes this idea so that the do not repent.
