Isaiah "The Wolf with the Lamb"
Israel's "Biblical Art" Coin Series
The 12th Coin in the "Biblical Art" Series
"The Wolf shall also dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and the little child shall lead them". (Isaiah 11:6)
According to the prophecy of Isaiah, there will come a time, when the wolf will dwell with the lamb. Since a wolf would always devour a lamb, we understand the allegory in Isaiah's prophecy represents a time when there will be lasting peace and harmony among mankind. In this ideal, love and understanding will reign among man and the animals. Moral, spiritual and material perfection will be attained. No longer will there be evil, hatred and envy in the world. This is the age for which we yearn and pray.
