Between Now and Then

The very important metaphor of the relationship of a father and his daughter is also used by the prophets Ezekiel and Isaiah to describe the special relationship of Yahweh with the people of Israel.  Matthew 9:18-26 uses the metaphor in reference to two people whom Jesus will heal.  Dean Elliott also brings to light some other very important metaphors found in this section.  (Warning: This message has PG content.)
