Metaphors provide a way to make difficult ideas more tangible. They infuse and fill written texts with vivid, memorable descriptions.
The Apostle Paul may have used more metaphors than anyone. In an effort to help his readers connect their faith to everyday life, he would constantly draw upon images common to the first-century world.
Some of these images are still familiar to us; some are quite strange. All of them will help us understand our identity as followers of Jesus. Please join us for a 5-week sermon series where will explore a few of these metaphors and what they mean for our lives.
