Christian Butterfly symbolism has been talked about throughout the ages.
The butterfly emerging from the chrysalis has traditionally been a symbolism of Christ rising from the tomb.
The miracle of course is that the egg is transformed into the beautiful butterfly.....it leaves no doubt in my mind that there IS a God.
I think that is why I have become so fascinated with Butterflies.
Raising Monarchs and observing this miracle reinforces my faith and feeds my soul.
It assures me that God is alive and working in the world, that He is an awesome Creator and masterful artist (as we see throughout nature) and that there is hope in Eternal Life.
Christian butterfly symbolism can also be found in comparing the butterfly metamorphosis (transformation) to Christian metanoia (conversion or transformation).
2 Corinthians 5:17 "So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.
