Range of Meanings: Thunder

Concept: Very few of the biblical references of thunder are limited to literal weather occurrences. For example, in both the Old and New Testaments, God’s voice is described as being like thunder. When it’s used in the Bible it’s to show the magnitude of awe (due to the incredible audible power of thunder) and help explain hearing the voice of the Lord.

References or Context:

“Father, glorify your name!”Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.

John 12:28-29

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns…”

Revelation 19:6
