Who: Israel’s God, Pharaoh, and the Jewish people.
Plot: Israelites at this time were apart of slavery, they were treated inhumanely. The Ten plagues, which were disastrous things, (Water to blood, Frogs, Gnats, Flies, Livestock diseased, Boils, Thunder and hail, Locusts, Darkness, and Death of the firstborn) were pushed by Israel’s god to persuade the Pharaoh of Egypt to release the slaves of Israel.
Point: Shows the force that certain things have on people. Such as, releasing the Israelite slaves.

Who: Jesus, and all types of people to walk the world.
Plot: Many people wanted to speak to Jesus as well as listen to him speak. On a mountainside Jesus spoke about all very important things in life.

Other: Jesus’ words are the keys to living happy and legal life.
Who: Lazarus, Mary, Martha, Bethany, and Jesus.
Plot: A friend of Mary and Martha, Lazarus, was very ill. Jesus was told to come down as soon as possible to heal Lazarus. Jesus wouldn’t, he showed up very late and by that time Lazarus was passed away. Then Jesus used his powers and brought him back to life.
Point: Mary and Martha knew that Jesus could heal Lazarus so when he didn’t come down to heal him immediately they were unsure of why. This shows that Jesus is there, but he will let trouble come into your life. Nothing is guaranteed perfection.
Other: This biblical allusion has a very strong message that some people may not understand yet if they are followers of Jesus.
The last Supper: Who: Jesus and his Disciples.

Jonah went straight to Nineveh to order the people to stop doing bad things. He was mad though when god didn’t punish them.
Point: God would rather see people turn away from the bad of their doings, and do good then destroy the people doing bad.
