Dracula


Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) is a horror classic that has inspired many other vampire stories, from Nosferatu (1922) to Twilight (2008-2010).
Dracula set the standard for what a vampire looks like and how it behaves in Western culture. The novel contains many religious overtones, as Dracula is repelled by communion wafers and crucifixes.
One of the most important aspects of a vampire is drawn directly from the Bible. Deuteronomy 12:23 says, “Only be sure not to eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh.” Renfield, a character in a lunatic asylum eventually revealed to be under the sway of Dracula himself, quotes this verse directly. The Bible influences various literary genres, even horror novels.

Different views


John relates Jesus’ life from a heavenly point of view, while Matthew relates it from a Jewish point of view, Luke from a Greek point of view, and Mark from a Roman viewpoint. As a consequence, John is the only Gospel author who wrote to a universal audience. Why did he write the book? Here is John’s answer to that question:
“These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
John 20:31
