Simon's Death

LRDFLS-6NTZLL

Which of the following quotations illustrate the parallel between Simon's death and the account of Jesus's death given in the New Testament of the Christian Bible?

A

"He crawled forward and soon he understood.... He saw how pitilessly the layers of rubber and canvas held together the poor body that should be rotting away.... Then he took the lines in his hands; he freed them from the rocks and the figure from the wind's indignity"

B

"So they had shifted camp then, away from the beast. As Simon thought this, he turned to the poor broken thing that sat stinking by his side. The beast was harmless and horrible; and the news must reach the others as soon as possible. He started down the mountain and his legs gave beneath him. Even with great care the best he could do was a stagger."

C

"The blue-white scar was constant, the noise unendurable. Simon was crying out something about a dead man on a hill.
'Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood! Do him in!'
The sticks fell and the mouth of the new circle crunched and screamed. The beast was on its knees in the center, its arms folded over its face. It was crying out against the abominable noise something about a body on the hill."
