POTGIETER, Raymond. Bread: From grain to life. Validating the use of metaphor. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2305-0853.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i1.1836.

Metaphors have always lent strength to human communication. A closer examination will reveal their value for theological conversation, in particular as a vehicle for meaning. Meaning includes both linguistic and cognitive aspects. Bread has been a favourite subject of metaphor. When the concept bread is viewed metaphorically in the context of the Bible, it becomes evident that it transcends the usual boundaries set by metaphorical understanding. Bread, as metaphor, becomes a vehicle of transition from grain to spiritual life. This is possible because metaphor in the Bible is to be understood within the context of special revelation of God, the story of the Bible.
