Allegory (Gal. 4: 24).
p. 206
It is sometimes urged by those who oppose the historic accuracy of the O.T. that even
Paul admitted that the incident concerning Sarah and Hagar and the birth of Ishmael, was
but an allegory. It is well to be accurate when dealing with the Word of God, and to
remember that the Apostle did not say that the incidents themselves were "but allegories"
but ha tina estin allegoroumena = "which is allegorizing", i.e., referring to his own use
of the historic incidents.
