Transcript of Allusions

Bible Allusions By Paige Davies.........Period 4 Allusion #1 and #2: There are 2 allusions in this song Called Hallelujah.
The first is the line "I heard there was a secret chord that David played and it pleased the Lord"
It is reffering to Saul loving David when he came to play the Harp for him. The second line in this song is reffering to Samson.
The line is "she tied you to a kitchen chair. She broke your thrown, she cut your hair."
This line is inspired by the part of the story of Samson when his wife cuts his hair which was the source of his strength and he is captured by the Philistines and tied to their temple. Allusion #3: In the Family Guy episode "If I'm Dying I'm Lyin" Peter lies and his lies get so big he ends up saying he is a Divine person and can heal the sick and "G-d" gets mad and plagues with the plagues from the Exodus story in the bible. First all the lights in his house go off then his dog Brian gets fleas. Then his son Chris gets boils and blood in the baby's bath. Frogs come then they run outside and see a golden statue of Peter just like the golden calf in the biblical story. The statue then crushes Chris as the last plague death of the first born but Peter apologizes and Chris lives. Allusion #4: In Frankenstein there is an allusion to Adam and Eve.
The monster says "But it was all a dream; no Eve soothed my sorrows nor shared my thoughts; I was alone. I remembered Adam's supplication to his Creator. But where was mine?" (127).
He is asking for his very own Eve or wife. Allusion #5: The next allusion is a phrase people say to some one referring to a beloved child who has evoked a feeling of pride.
"The apple of my eye"
Possibly referring to the apple of fruit from the Tree of Wisdom in the Garden of Eden. Allusion #6: This is another allusion to the apple or fruit from the Tree of Wisdom in the Garden of Eden.
From Twilight there is a picture of an apple in two hands and the caption is "the forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest."
"And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (Genesis 3:1-6)" Allusion #7: In the Disney movie "The Jungle Book" there is a snake named Kaa and he has the power to hypnotise people with his eyes. It is very similar to the snake that tempted Eve to take the Forbidden Fruit from the Tree in the Garden if Eden.
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yes, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?You shall not surely die: For God does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Genesis 3:1-6)" Allusion #8: The movie A Serious Man and the theme of the movie is about why bad things happen to good people. The book of Job consistanly asks that same question and the movie often has issues in it similar to the book of Job.
Book of Job Chapter 3 Verse 2: Jobe spoke up and said, parish the day on which i was born."
This quote relates to the movie's main character because bad things kept happening to him and he was thinking the same thing that Job said in the Bible. Allusion #9: In the book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 3 Verse 2-8:
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep...
And the band The Byrds wrote a song called "Turn, Turn, Turn" it has the exact same words in the song. Allusion #10: In the American play Porgy and Bess there is a song called Sportin' Life and the lyrics are the exact story of Jonah and the Whale. The End
