Transcript of Allusions Project: Biblical Allusions Group 2

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is presented as four men riding out of the cloud when Christ opens the first four of the seven seals that bind a scroll in God's right hand. The horsemen appear on white, red, black and pale horses, each symbolically representing conquest, war, famine and death. Together, they symbolize the horrors about to inflict the world as part of God's Final Judgment on mankind. Biblical Allusions Group 2 by Daniel in the Lion's Den Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Lazarus An angel named Gabriel came to a young Jewish woman named Mary and told her that she would give birth to the son of God, Jesus. Mary and her husband to be, Joseph had to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem to register for a census ordered by the Emperor Caesar Augustus. When they got to Bethlehem, there was no place to stay the night so they ended up staying in a stable. That night, Mary gave birth to Jesus and a star shone in the sky that signaled the birth of a new king. Three wise men were sent by King Herod to find the new king so that he could praise him too, but King Herod really wanted to kill Jesus. He sent his men to kill every baby boy under the age of two, thinking that one of them would be Jesus. After the three wise men met Jesus, they had a dream warning them about King Herod and then decided to take a different route home. The Birth Of Jesus Jezebel Darius the Mede took over the kingdom of Babylon. Darius appointed 3 satraps to act as an advice council to guide his leadership. Because of Daniel's exceptional qualities and performance as a government official, he won Darius' favor. The other officials were deeply jealous of Daniel, so they all plotted against him. The officials could not find any dirt on Daniel no matter how hard they looked. Finally, the officials convinced Darius to issue this decree: anyone in the next thirty days, found praying to god or man, other than the king, shall be fed to the lions. The conspirators used this new decree against Daniel because they knew Daniel prayed to his god three times a day. Darius had no choice but to throw him into a den of lions. After a couple days, Darius checks on Daniel and to his surprise, Daniel was perfectly fine. Daniel said that God had sent angels to shut the mouths of the lions so as to not hurt him. He was the brought out of the den, unharmed because of his faith to God. Artist Brian Whelan has used the Four

Major Characters, Symbols and Themes Allusion There is a line in Shakespere's The Merchant of Venice, where a the character Shylock says, "A Daniel come to judgment! Yea, a Daniel! O Wise young judge, how I do honour thee!"
In this play, Shylock is referring to the Daniel and the Lion's Den story to vouch for Antonio, the innocent lender in the play. Allusion Major Characters,
Symbols and Theme The major characters in this story are Daniel, an old, honest, hardworking government official, and King Darius, also known as Darius the Great, ruler of Babylon.
The story of Daniel and the Lion's Den can be relevant to our lives today. The lions and the den can be symbolic of any struggle or hardship we may be going through in our lives at any time. The theme of the story is that faith can get you through any adversity. Because of Daniel's faith in his god, the god sent an angel to rescue him from the lions. Faith does not have to be in a god or pertain to religion. GRAPES OF WRATH:
In the of Grapes of Wrath, Rose of Sharon is like Mary by acting motherly through providing comfort and prediction; this is seen when she feeds the old man alone in the barn.
Also, Mary and Joseph journeying to Bethlehem relates to how the family from the Grapes Of Wrath journey to the "promise land". There were two sisters named Martha and Mary who were friends with Jesus. When Lazarus became ill, his sisters sent Jesus a letter stating, “Lord the one you love is sick.” When Jesus arrived in Bethany, Lazarus had been dead in the tomb for four days. Jesus then responded, “He will rise again. I am resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will never die.” Jesus then went to the tomb with Mary, Martha, and the rest of the mourners where he asked them to remove the stone then looked up to heaven and said, “Lazarus come out!” Lazarus then came out of his tomb where he was surrounded with people removing his grave clothes. As a result of this incredible miracle, many people put their faith in Jesus. Jezebel was a Phoenician princess that married King Ahab to become queen of Israel. She wanted all of Israel to believe in the Phoenician god Baal instead of the Jewish God, Yahweh or Jehovah. She easily dominated her husband to rule as she wished. As queen, Jezebel killed every found prophet of Jehovah while favoring prophets of Baal. Jehovah punished Israel with famine and fire for Jezebel's actions. Jehovah then sent Elijah to declare Jehovah's judgement on her: death, if she did not reform the country to follow Jehovah. After a period of time where Jezebel had shown no regret in her actions, Jehu arrived to kill her and her whole family. Kevin Nguyen, Matthew Nario, Kevin Pascua, Alana DelosReyes, Henna Bianchini,
Chester Guinto, and Kristina Marynycheva Major Characters, Theme, and Symbol Allusion Major Characters: King Ahab-The king of Israel when the story took place. He wanted to allow people to worship who they wanted and not be punished for it. As a passive ruler, he did not take much action.
Elijah-A prophet that believed people should worship Jehovah instead of Baal. He regularly talked to Jehovah and warned the king and queen of Jehovah's judgement. He was later forced to flee because he angered Jezebel by killing Baal prophets. Doubting Thomas Parable of the Prodigal Son The story begins with a young man, youngest of two, asks his father to give him his share of the estate. He then moves to a distant country. There, he wastes all his wealth on "wild living" all while there is a severe famine. He is forced to work in the fields feeding pigs. When he reached the point of envying the pigs, he decides to return home and beg his father's forgiveness. When he arrives, he is immediately welcomed back and there is a feast for his return. Meanwhile the older brother is out in the fields working, when he learns of the feast he becomes furious and immediately questions his father's actions. "'My son,' the father said, 'you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found'". Allusions Theme: The Consequence of Being Irresponsible-Jezebel did not take responsibilty for her actions after being told Jehovah's judgement. As a result, Israel suffered and her family was punished with death. Tom Joad

Charles Dickens'
Great Expectations Doubting Thomas was one of the 12 disciples. After Jesus’ resurrection, Jesus appeared to some of his disciples. Not being with the other disciples at the time, Thomas did not believe that Jesus had resurrected, stating “Unless I see the nail marks in his hand and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it. Eight days later, Jesus appeared again, despite the doors being locked. Speaking to Thomas, Jesus said “Put your fingers here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas then believed that Jesus did resurrect from the dead. With this, the famous John 201:26-29 stated “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed,” Major Characters & Symbols Major Characters •Jesus
