    And Professor Braunmuller noted in his introduction that "manna" is also found in Chapter 6 of the GOSPEL OF JOHN.

    Yes, there are a lot of biblical terms in the play.

    R&J then begins with an allusion or indirect reference to the GOSPEL OF JOHN and MV ends with one. Holy cow! It seems to me that though it is clear that Antonio's "Mark you this, Bassanio, / The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose"(MV1.3.95-6), is a reference to the Gospel by the author, whether Antonio also has this in mind is uncertain.
