 Creating Biblical Figures - By Thomas L. Thompson
In the biblical use of this tradition, metaphorical continuity with ancient Near Eastern texts is so marked that one can well identify Thutmosis III as a clear predecessor of the saving messianic role of the Bible’s holy war narratives.
In the closing chapter of this section, I reconsider the theme of life’s victory over death through the perspective of the related themes of "new wine" and "blood of the covenant," as each is intimately connected to the fertility myth of the dying and rising god, from Tammuz and Ba’al to Dionysus.

 Figures of Speech
These same figures of speech sound quite strange to a person whose second language is English, and does not know the meaning of our English figures of speech.
If someone centuries down the road was to read the American figure of speech, "Are you down with that?," and interpret this in a spatial fashion, rather than the actual cultural meaning of "Are you OK with that?," they are misinterpreting the statement.
Figurative language like this is not to be taken as literal descriptions of God’s appearance (seeing He is a spirit), but is a literary device used to communicate a reality about God’s person.

 Medical Job Openings -- Recommendations and Resources   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
