Allegory

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

The word ἀλληγορέω occurs only in Galatians 4:24 . The passage does not mean that Abraham having two sons was an allegory: it was history, but that history had an allegorical application, which Paul, by the Holy Ghost, fully explains. The Greek word signifies 'to speak otherwise,' and an allegory is a description of one thing under the image of another.
