Figures of Speech Used In The Bible
S;eech of Speech Used in the Bible by E. Have you ever wondered what the difference between a parable, a proverb, a fable, an allegory, a type, or a symbol was? Did you ever wonder what the difference between a simile, a metaphor, an idiom, an oxymoron, an ellipsis, an irony, or a climax was?
The introduction of this book very briefly explains what figures of speech are, how the ancient Greeks started them and the Romans continued them.
Figures of Speech Used in the Bible: Explained and Illustrated by E.W. Bullinger
The introduction gives a brief history of how these figures were brought back to life after having almost died out in the Middle Ages. The history of them is not essential for their use, but is there if someone is interested. Figures of Speech used in the Bible names each of the figures of speech in the Table of Contents and shows how they are classified. The book then it gives each figure the correct pronunciation, it’s etymology breaking the word down into it’s prefixes, suffixes, and root, and what they meanand then each place that figure of speech is used in the Bible.
The etymology given in the book for each word is only a few lines long. As an aside, the etymology of words is not something to fear.
In fact, using medical terms all day at work and studying words in the Bible as I do complement each other. They for the most part can both be broken down into Greek and some Latin.
Etymology is valuable in medicine. In some cases, the Greek and the medical terminology match each other. For more information on a good book that contains medical etymology, see my opinion of The Language of Medicine.
The value of a figure of speech is having a better understanding of what is written. Examples are where Christ is likened to q lion because of his strength. Christ is not a lion, but is set along side one for comparison. Christ is also compared to a thief at His coming again. He is not a thief, but he is compared with one.
This because He will be just as unexpected at His coming as a thief is. This is a book that requires thought, but for those interested in understanding God’s written revelation, it is a reference worth having.
