On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/02/20), Hank returns to his series on exegetical eschatology, focusing on how crucial it is to recognize that Scripture is replete with figurative language. Figurative language requires readers to use their imagination to comprehend what the author is driving at. Such imaginative leaps are the rule rather than the exception. There are a wide variety of ways in which the inspired authors of the biblical text employ figurative language. The three most basic literary terms used to classify these figures of speech are metaphor, simile, and hyperbole. Biblical metaphors are never to be regarded as vacuous occasions for subjective flights of fantasy. On the contrary, biblical metaphors are always objectively meaningful, authoritative, and true. Metaphors have teeth—some are especially sharp. For further information please see The Apocalypse Code.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- What does the Bible say about extraterrestrial life? Does the Bible mention dinosaurs?
- Can you give us a preview on what you are going to say concerning Jonathan Cahn on an upcoming broadcast?
- I just joined this church called the Philadelphia Church of God, do you know anything about this church?
