Hyperbole“I’m so hungry I can eat a horse.” “His brain is the size of a pea.” “My feet are killing me.” These are just some examples of Hyperbole, a figure of speech that uses an exaggerated or extreme statement to create a strong emotional response. Jesus Christ used hyperbole in many of His teachings, and these images were not to be taken literally. So before you “pluck your eye out” (Matthew 18:9) or fear that you’re going to burn in hell fire for having called someone a “fool” in anger (Matthew 5:22), remember that Jesus was merely trying to make a point and get you to think further about what He was saying.
