Exploring wolf references: “Wolf in sheep’s clothing”

ImageThe idiom “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” has Biblical origins. Ancient Greek fables offer warnings similar to those offered in the Bible. Today, the phrase serves as a warning against anyone with a friendly face and malicious intent.

The phrase remains popular. In fact, it has its own Tumblr page.

Apparently, the phrase is a popular inspiration for tattoos as well.

This subject was inspired by #WerewolfWednesday, which I hold each week on my Facebook page.
