The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book
of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree.
One of their children, Cain, asked "Am I my brother's son?" God
asked Abraham to sacrifice Issac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of
Issac, stole his brother's birthmark. Jacob was a partiarch who brought
up his twelve sons to be partiarchs, but they did not take to it.
One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites.
