Kinds of meaning and types of meaning are two of the main ideas in the book, "The Language and Imagery of the Bible," by G. Caird. Proverbs are short, pithy sayings that express a general truth.

Exceptions are allowed. A good example of an exception to a proverb is the book of Job. Colossians "Firstborn" is a term that appears quite frequently in Scripture.

People most frequently think of it in terms of Jesus. He was Mary's firstborn (Matthew ).He is also referred to as being "the firstborn among many brethren" (Romans ).In Colossians and RevelationHe is called "the firstborn from the dead." These biblical references are then linked in the minds.

“The principal sources of the figurative language of the Bible are the physical features of the Holy Land, the habits and customs of its ancient tribes, and the forms of Israelite worship.

God’s Word, the Bible, came to us in human language and in human culture and human contexts and we understand God’s Word by reading it within that particular culture and context in.

In the Bible, the laws in the Law of Moses are least likely to use figurative language (though even they do so occasionally), while poems and songs are most likely to use figurative language.

2. Subject: Knowing something about the subject matter of a passage may help us to know whether a statement is literal or figurative.The Interpretation of Figurative Language First, figurative language is interpreted by its context.
