    On the face of it, Aesop must have originated the phrase as his tales are much older than any biblical text. https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/wolf-in-sheeps...

    It's a useful phrase that fits in well with the Bible's theme of sheep, shepherds, wolves, lambs to the slaughter, the Lamb's Blood. Lamb's blood is used literally in the Old Testament and figuratively to mean the blood of Christ shed for us all. 

    A wolf in sheep's clothing would be someone who appears on your side but will turn and rend you when you least expect it. A turncoat. A traitor in your midst. A RINO. Many examples abound.
