This article has a lot more than 4000 characters in it so I can't post it here, there are very clear metaphors in this story and it is explained in that article.

I'm wondering if it is less metaphor and more allegory. As years past, I'm finding the Bible to be not as musings of a fabulist as I originally thought, but moreso a record of rather astonishing miracles. These miracles, however, do not end with an isolated incident, rather expounding upon a much greater picture of the workings of the universe. Even through the parables of Christ, there is both the literal and transcendent meanings to the scenarios set forth. Is it metaphorical? Is it literal? It is both. It is allegorical. Hidden? Only when we stop bothering to seek out all applications of the message.
