If Jesus came to the Earth in 21st century America instead of 0th century Palestine, no doubt he would use different metaphors to help us understand him. He went to an agrarian society and therefore used many farming related metaphors. Below are some ideas as to what he might say to our society.
“I am the true cell phone charger. Your cell phone can only last so long on its own before it dies. I am the conduit through which your life sustaining power comes.”
“I am the true cell phone tower. I am the conduit of the data from the sky and will reveal things to you that would be impossible on your own.”
“I am the true 401k. I AM well able to provide security and peace of mind when the storms of life come.”
“I am the true retirement. I will give you rest from the labors and toil of this earth’s work and place you beyond the stresses of the daily grind.”
Any other ideas for current metaphors He might use?
