An Alluded Cruise on the S.S. Allusion
Thank You For Riding on the S.S Allusion. We hope you had a great time learning about Allusions being Alluded. If an Allusion is Alluded, it is therefore an Allusion because it was first Alluded.

Central Idea
In the Book "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury, the author utilizes allusions throughout the story to give specific events and actions a deeper meaning.
Jesus Christ
(Pg. 130)
Jesus Christ is the most unique man in all of history. He is the Savior and Messiah in the Bible for the Christian religion. He was born of a virgin and is the Son of God. The name Jesus and Christ are alluded to many times. Bradbury mostly alludes to him when the characters use his name in vain. This shows that the society has lost all morals and laws of the Bible as they continued not to read it.

Revelation (Pg. 145)
The last book of the Bible that describes the end times. This was alluded in the book to when the city burned and it felt like the end of the world. Revelation describes the end times just like at the end of the book.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (pg145)
The first 4 books of the New Testament that are called the gospel. They are different accounts of Jesus’ life and what he did. It is the account of his death and resurrection as well. These books of the Bible are alluded to when the people that Montag meet in the woods have memorized them. It is essential that they memorized these books, because they are trying to save society, and the books of Jesus the Savior are the best books to do so.
Tree of Life(pg 158)
Bradbury uses the quote from the Bible related to the Tree of Life to show that Montag wants to heal the world through the knowledge of the Bible. The Tree of Life is a tree that was located in the Garden of Eden; also the tree contains fruit that can make a man immortal.
Book of Job(pg89)
The book of Job is a book in the Bible in which Job, God’s good servant, is tested by Satan. He loses his health, his family, and his possessions. He tries not to blame God, but his friends convince him he should. God replies by asking questions to show His own glory and power. Job is one of the Books of the Bible that Montag snatches when Beatty is on to him. Bradbury purposefully chooses this book by alluding to it. The allusion takes place because Montag will soon lose everything, and he will have to chose how to respond.
Old and New Testament(pg 89)
The Old and New Testaments are the two parts of the Bible. The Old Testament is the story of creation, God’s deliverance of His people, and prophecies of the Messiah. The New Testament is the accounts of Jesus the Messiah, how we shall live in accordance to what he has done, and an account for the end of times. The two parts of the Bible are alluded to in the book to demonstrate the importance of the morals presented in the books.
Sheep/shepherd (Pg. 102)
In The Bible, the sheep and shepherd are common comparisons to Jesus and his people. Jesus is the shepherd and we are the sheep. Beatty refers to people as sheep who have all strayed at times. He alludes to the Bible’s ideas, as everyone messes up, but there is always something that will save. In the Bible, Jesus saves, but in the book, not reading books and living life saves.
Tower of Babel (pg 35)
The Tower of Babel is found in the book of Genesis in the Bible. The Tower of Babel is a place where people tried to get up to Heaven, but God smitten them to many different languages. Beatty refers to the Tower of Babel when he says that the books don’t agree with each other. It is like they all have different languages, like the confusion at the Tower of Babel.
Ecclesiastes (pg 153)
Ecclesiastes is a book of the Bible that is in the Old Testament. Ecclesiastes is a book that is written about wisdom and the human experience. It is by no accident that Bradbury alludes to this book, as this is the book that Montag had memorized. He had it memorized for the wisdom of the human race, and for his own good.
Book of Ruth (pg 102)
Ruth is a book of the Bible in the Old Testament that describes a Mobite’s woman conversion into Judaism. She was King David’s great-grandmother. Jesus, the Messiah, also called Son of David, was therefore in Ruth’s line of heritage. This is alluded to in the book when Montag also takes this book when Beatty is on to him. He chooses this book as a direct result that Montag is about to leave all he knows, and will be taken on by a new “family” later in the book.
Lilies of the field (Pg. 75)
The lilies of the field is from a verse in the Bible. The verse it is found in is Matthew 6:28. This is part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. This is alluded to in the book because the lilies do not toil or spin, they are constant because nature is a for sure thing. This makes Montag think about how Clarisse really saw the world.
Our Focus
We found many allusions to the Bible in "Fahrenheit 451" and chose to focus on those allusions on our alluded cruise on the S.S. Allusion.
