The First Rock Song: Contributions of Divine Metaphors to the Theology of the Song of Moses

Ismael Dora



This book examines three divine metaphors in the Song of Moses: God is a rock, God is a father, and God is an avenging warrior. It utilizes a text-based approach to figurative language, meaning that the metaphors are studied and analyzed through the biblical text. By using this approach, this book allows the reader to grasp the intention of the original author of the poem and enables him to better understand the metaphorical statements and their rhetorical effects.
