Summary
The phrase "like a bride adorned" is one of the ways Revelation describes the new Jerusalem which descends from heaven.€ This phrase can also be read as describing one of the ways interpreters historically have understood the relationship between Revelation and its metaphorical language.€ In contrast to views that suggest Revelation's metaphorical language is simple adornment, Huber argues that Revelation's persuasive power resides within the text's metaphorical nature and€she articulates a method for exploring how Revelation employs metaphor to shape an audience's thought.
