Topic: Bible plargism?

In "Foundation and Chaos" page 143 when Daneel visists Hari Seldon before he is arrested I was dismayed to find biblical passages rewritten. 'Hari heald out his hands, and wailed, "Release me, Daneel! Take all of this off my shoulders!'
Very much like Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane pleading to God to take his burden before he was arrested.
Hari being Jesus and Daneel being God.
The rest of the book was terrific!!!!

Thanks, Arthur! I don't recall making a conscious parallel, but it is striking.
