Metaphors Related to Jesus Christ

This teaching looks at several metaphors used for Jesus Christ in the Bible including “I am the light of the world,” “I am the bread of life,” “I am the door,” “I am the good shepherd,” “I am the vine,” and “that Rock was Christ”. God uses figures of speech in the Bible to highlight important sections for us to consider further. Understanding figures of speech in the Bible is crucial to us knowing whether something is literal or figurative. These figures of speech draw attention to Jesus Christ’s accomplishments and how his life continues to affect ours.
