A Study of Biblical Metaphors for the Christian Life
by Dr. Mark Rasussen
Our Lord often used common illustrations to teach great truths. He used ordinary objects, relationships, and events to communicate extraordinary principles. Much of Paul’s instructions, too, were given through metaphorical language to which his hearers could relate. Analogies and metaphors help us grasp larger truths because they take us from our everyday experiences and lead us to what God desires to be daily realities in our Christian walk.
In this curriculum, we will examine thirteen metaphors that will help define, clarify, and instruct us in specific aspects of our relationship with the Lord. As we examine the basic characteristics of each, we will more thoroughly understand our responsibilities as Christians and learn how to successfully fulfill God’s design for our lives.

We began this study in the fall of 2010 and finished in late January! The teens loved it, but more importantly, they learned it. From it's down- to-earth applications, and biblical foundation, this study will cause the minds of young people to turn, and it will encourage them to live for the Lord in a world of indifference. It was even refreshing for me as I studied the lessons for each week! Scott on Aug 18, 2011
