Metaphors of St. Paul


Strahan & Co. 1868

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


John Howson discusses metaphors that St. Paul used in his writings. He illustrates four selected groups of images: Roman soldiers, classical architecture, ancient agriculture, and Greek games. These metaphors draws us to the things that surrounded St. Paul and others in his day, and explains the circumstances of their lives, and shows how these imageries were effectively connected to the New Testament passages.

About John Saul Howson

John Saul Howson (1816-1885) was born at Giggleswick-on-Craven, Yorkshire. He became senior classical master at the Liverpool College in 1845 under his friend W. J. Conybeare, whom he succeeded as principal in 1849. He held this post until 1865, and it was largely due to his influence that a similar college for girls was established at Liverpool. Howson’s chief literary production was The Life and Epistles of St. Paul in which he collaborated with Conybeare. His other works include Scenes From the Life of St. Paul and Their Religious Lessons and Metaphors of St. Paul.
