As an English teacher, I encounter idioms constantly. As a student of languages, I find them constantly fascinating. As a Christian who seeks wisdom from scripture, I found biblical idioms reflected in God’s Word.
An idiom is a phrase that has a different meaning than the one suggested by the words that make up the phrase. There is no logical reason that we say “It’s raining cats and dogs” or tell children “Don’t cry over spilt milk,” but we do. What’s more, we understand each other. Finding the correct meaning in these phrases is “a piece of cake.”
