he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, that hath been mingled unmixed in the cup of His anger, and he shall be tormented
in fire and brimstone before the holy messengers, and before the Lamb,
1) to test (metals) by the touchstone, which is a black siliceous stone used to test the purity of gold or silver by the colour of the streak produced on it by rubbing it with either metal
Note that a refiner (Mal 3:2) uses that stone. A refiner watches/tests if all dross is removed from the gold. Imo if the Bible speaks about wheat don't just study commentaries from a theologian; also go to the library and read about farming/wheat. Same for sheep, fish, gold and marriage. Jesus was a teacher. A teacher teaches at the student. If you where an illiterate farmer and you hear about wheat or sheep would you or would you not relate that to your daily job.
Please note for the Jews at that time there isn't much new stuff in the NT.
Most of Jesus parables were used on daily basis for teaching people the things of God long before Jesus was born.
