Biblical Allusions (Group 2) Trey Byrd Patrick Elam Jenny Darby Daniel and the Lion's Den When Israel was in captivity in Babylon, Daniel was selected to serve as an advisor to the King. The other non-Jewish advisers became jealous of Daniel's favor with the king, and devised a plot against him. They approached the king asking him to issue a decree stating that anyone caught worshiping another being besides Cyrus would be put to death. Daniel continued to worship the one true God, and was caught by the other advisers. Daniel was thrown in the lion's den overnight, but was not eaten because God sent an Angel to close the lions’ mouths. He was then released, and Cyrus threw the other advisers into the den, declaring that the people should worship the “God of Daniel.” Elijah and Jezebel Elijah was a prophet of God when Ahab and his wife Jezebel ruled over Israel. The queen was a foreigner who worshiped the false gods of Baal and Asherah. Elijah challenged the priests of the false gods. He told them to prepare an offering and to call on their god to light it. After hours of listening to the false prophets’ cries, Elijah soaked his offering with water, and then called down the fire of God which burned the offering, the alter, and licked up the surrounding water. The people of Israel saw the truth and killed the false prophets. Sodom and Gomorrah Lot and his family were the only ones who knew the true God in the city of Sodom. God sent two angels to warn Lot to leave before God destroyed the cities, for they were evil. While they fled, Lot's wife looked back, regretting their leaving, and turned into a pillar of salt. Lot and his daughters got away safely. All that remained of Sodom and Gomorrah was brimstone. Birth of Jesus Mary was engaged to Joseph, but while still a virgin, an angel told her that she was pregnant and had conceived through God's power. An honorable man, Joseph took Mary as his wife after having a dream in which an angel told him not to be afraid. At that time, the Roman government required all citizens to return to their hometown to participate in a census. Joseph took Mary to Bethlehem, where they searched for a place for Mary to have her baby. The only place available was a stable. There, Jesus was born and placed in a manger. That night, a host of angels appeared to a group of shepherds outside Bethlehem, announcing the news of Jesus’ birth. Parable of the Prodigal Son A wealthy father divided his estate between his two sons. The younger one took his inheritance and ran off to a distant land, foolishly spending his money on parties and wild living. His new “friends” disappeared when his money was gone and the younger son found himself hungry, with no place to live. Desperate, he returned home intending to work as a servant to his father. However, the father saw him coming, forgave him and welcomed him back into his place in the family by throwing a party. The older brother was angry that although he served his father faithfully his father had not given him a party. Lazarus Lazarus was a good friend of Jesus who became ill. His sisters Mary and Martha sent Jesus a message telling him Lazarus was sick and to come quickly to heal him. Jesus purposefully delayed coming until Lazarus had been dead 3 days. He commanded the sisters to open the dead man’s tomb. They obeyed although they were afraid of the smell. Jesus commanded Lazarus to come out and he did! John the Baptist John lived in the wilderness and called people to repent of their sins and be baptized. One day, Jesus came to John, asking to be baptized. When Jesus came up from the water, God spoke to the crowd gathered around, saying “This is my Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Last Supper, Judas, Crucifixion and Resurrection and Doubting Thomas Jesus had prophesied his death, and at Passover, broke bread and shared wine symbolizing his body and blood which would be poured out for the sins of man. Late that night, Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 silver coins. When the soldiers came to take Jesus away, his disciples fled in fear. Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse While in exile on the Island of Patmos, the apostle John had a vision. In one part of his vision there were four horsemen, each a different color and with different powers. The first was white, and represented the antichrist. The second horse, a red one, had the ability to take peace from the earth. The third horse was black, and represented famine. The fourth pale horse was called death. Jesus was then illegally tried and falsely accused of breaking laws. He was crucified on a Roman cross and, being without sin, became an offering to God to cover the sins of men. On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. He appeared in a locked room where all the disciples but Thomas had gathered. When the other disciples told Thomas what had happened, he refused to believe until he had touched Jesus’ wounds for himself. Soon after Jesus appeared again to the disciples and this time Thomas was present. When he saw Jesus he believed that he was his Lord and God.
