This teaching reviews four specific types of figures of speech: metonymy, synecdoche, metalepsis, and idioms. Understanding these figures of speech helps us gain a greater appreciation for the detail of God’s Word. The definition and examples of each type of figure are given to help the listener reach a greater understanding of how these function in God’s Word. An explanation is specifically given of the idiom of permission. We are reminded of how important it is to speak God’s Word to people since God is a delivering God.
