What Is a Biblical Allusion?

Answer

A biblical allusion is a device that encourages associations, ideas and information in the reader's mind using the help of a few words, which refer to a common phrase in the holy bible. Many references are used by different readers when they want the readers to get to understand the meaning behind the indirect words: for instance the word, 'Alpha and Omega', which means, 'the beginning and the end'.
