The article considers the questions connected with the Bible

text as a precedential phenomenon for Russian literature and

culture. The Old Testament situation of Burning Bush and the

concepts formed on its base are in the center of author’s attention.

The evolution of concept meanings was studied with the help

of the method of comparison of cognitive matrix of the Bible text

and novels written in different time.

As a result of the carried out analysis it is stated that under

considerable deformations in the structure of cognitive matrix of

the Bible text in the process of realization of its precedential

potential both conceptional link with the original Bible text and

universal multicultural nature of key concepts “Burning Bush”,

“God”, “Light” are marked. The conclusion is made that their

further semantic evolution in language and lingual culture is

considered to be promising.
