A systematic presentation of an idea that expresses theoretical truths not related to, but obvious in the text. Revealed or substantiated by comparing Scripture with Scripture to arrive at a conclusion. METAPHORS: a metaphor compares two unlike objects or ideas and illuminates the similarities between them. A metaphor evokes a mental picture making a picture worth a thousand words. Poetry would be impoverished; teaching and writing handicapped without metaphorical illustrations.

Metaphoric examples: “Metaphoric fragrances are the inhale of linguistic flowers.”   “Conscience is like an owl on the night watch.”
