Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Judges 9:8 (a) It is not a natural thing for one tree to rule over another tree, and certainly not for a bramble to rule over a big tree. Neither was it right nor natural for Abimelech to rule over Israel, and to destroy the family of Gideon.
Romans 5:17 (a) The word is used to describe that one who is a conqueror over passion, lust and all evil things.
Romans 5:21 (a) This word is used to show how that GOD's grace is more powerful and more evident than sin. When the tide is out, then many rocks and boulders appear on the beach. These represent sins in the life. When the tide comes in, there is far more water than stones, and the tide completely covers all the boulders on the beach. That great incoming tide represents the wonderful grace of GOD.
Romans 6:12 (a) By this figure we are admonished to let no evils prevail in the life, so that they direct the life in wrong paths.
1 Corinthians 4:8 (a) Paul is using sarcasm and irony in this passage to shame the Corinthians into seeing their real condition.
