Metaphysical meaning of Abishag (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Abishag (mbd)
Abishag, ab'-i-shag (Heb.)--father of error; father (cause) of wandering; father of ignorance.

A Shunammite woman, very beautiful and young, who became the wife of David and ministered to him (I Kings 1:1-4).

Meta. The meaning of Abishag, with the history of her as given in the Bible, reveals her as being representative of the ignorant, error, limited belief that spiritually unawakened man holds in regard to life. Life is divine and its source is God, Spirit. It does not emanate from the soul; it is not a psychic or a purely mental quality, nor does it spring from the physical. It is spiritual, and one can be truly quickened with new life and vitalized in soul and in body only by consciously contacting Spirit.
