Metaphor

“he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour” (2 Sam. 22:3).

“We are His people and the sheep of His pasture” (Ps. 100:3).

“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. ” (John 10:16).

The seven “I am” statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John are all metaphors.

“I am the bread of life” (John 6:35).

“I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. ” (John 10:9)

“I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11).

“I am the the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25).

“I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman."(John 15:1).

Also see Psalm 23:1; Jeremiah 2:13; Luke 8:21; Revelation 1:20.
