Why should a command like this imply that the temple is literal? What
would the command look like if it was 'symbolic', that is,
metaphorical? When Jesus said 'A man went out to sow' does this imply
there was a literal man? Were there, or will there be, four literal
horses with four literal riders?
I wonder if I could make a plea, on this list at least, for reflective
engagement with the nature of metaphorical language...
