Fighting dragons

Do you know there are dragons in the Bible? You can find a story of a fight against a dragon in chapter 12 of the book of Revelation. There, we read about Michael and his angels casting out the great red dragon.

Well, we know that fire-breathing dragons are not actual animals but imaginary creatures that can seem to be rather scary. So why do you suppose this story about a dragon is in the Bible?

We know the Bible teaches us about God. Throughout the Scriptures we learn that God is always good and all-powerful, and that He loves and cares for all His children. When the Bible is showing how God keeps us safe, it sometimes says God's angels are with us or that He sends them before us or that an angel talks to someone. Michael is the name given to one angel. But angels are not winged creatures or persons.
