In the Bible, lightning accompanies the appearance of God in Exodus, this takes place after Moses goes up the mountain to get the 10 commandments.

So God orders the Levites to go around and kill their brothers, friends and neighbours for worshiping the golden calf instead of him.… Harsh?… I think we’d all agree its a pretty extreme measure.

Lightning symbolizes the light of truth.
In many Asian cultures, Air or Sky Dragons are responsible for lightning, the bolts caused by their scales and wings as they fly through the heavens.
Lightning bolts are often used in traditional Japanese tattooing when a dragon is flying through the sky.
In ancient mythologies from many cultures (Norse, Roman, Greek, Native American, etc.) the lighting bolt would be hurled by male sky gods to punish, water, or fertilize the earth or its creatures. Navajo myths linked it to the Thunderbird, the symbol of salvation and divine gifts. The lightning bolt also symbolises change and divine intervention.
