Why do you use such a name?
Here is my answer:
I apologize if my question is incorrect, and I really mean both–apology and incorrect.
However, there are times, I thought, when people are said to be a fox, like Herod.
Also, Jesus is our Shepherd and we are His sheep.
I know that a figure of speech must be moved or translated to the literal.
These figures are dark to most of us, example, the tree of life. A literal tree is being described, but the statement is still a figure. There is a literal tree, but most of us have not been taught what the literal of this figure is. What is the literal of its fruit?
However, I am still looking for times when the Holy Bible says a person is an animal.
The Devil is described as a snake, dragon, sea monster and red dragon, I think. Then the next question(s), what is the literal meaning of these figures?
I think I recall Jacob’s blessing and Jacob said that several of his children were animals. Please know, I know that these are figures.
What my next set of questions deal with–what does the literal mean? Or, what is the literal meaning?
My next set of questions, do these animal names correspond with Genesis 1-3?
I want to thank you for your helpful concern, thank you.
I hope and pray that my ideas, whether correct, incorrect or abosultely silly, are a little clearer.
