There are a many things that are important if one is to truly understand the teachings of Jesus the Christ.

One of those is that we need to become comfortable with metaphors. Here is one definition of the word “metaphor”:

Metaphor definition

Here are a few metaphors Jesus uses to describe the Kingdom of Heaven:

·       A farmer (Matt. 13:24);

·       A mustard seed (Matt. 13:31);

·       A king (Matt. 18:23);

·       A net (Matt. 13:47);

·       A merchant (Matt. 13:45);

·       Yeast (Matt. 13:33);

·       A barn (Matt. 3:12);

·       A sower of good seed (Matt. 13:24);

·       A treasury (Matt.6:19);

·       Father’s house -Jn14:2 

I have been thinking recently about what modern day items/objects might be good metaphors for being a follower of the Christ?

Any ideas?
