      This paper will require from its readers a basic prior knowledge of Metaphor Theory, which has been well explained by Justin Rossow in “Preaching the Story Behind the Image: A Narrative Approach to Metaphor for Preaching,” [1] as well as of the discoveries of George Lakoff and Mark Johnson in their book Metaphors We Live By, whose main idea.
