Theological Term of the Week: Hyperbole

This week’s term: Hyperbole (hīˈpərbəlē) – An obvious and intentional exaggeration, used not to deceive, but for effect; not meant to be taken literally, but to give an illustration to the extremity. 

Last week’s term: Homiletics – The branch of theology dealing with the proper writing and preaching of sermons. The value of homiletical study is to enhance the organization and systematization of subjects, making them more easily understandable and memorable.
