Biblical allusion enables the reader to associate with the text.... to make a connection. In using Biblical allusion, an author can help the reader connect to something that isn't particular to a time or a place, because it's something that has been going on for all time..... something we can relate to.

Oh, I think, it isn’t just a twentieth-century problem, this business of brothers having trouble with each other and of young men stumbling and falling; it’s been going on since forever.
