Please keep in mind that I am only interpreting your dream as seen through my life's mind. I could very well be off completely. But, I wish to try to suggest an explanation.
Dreams are the brain's way of saying "What if?" Dreams are an intelligent being's attempt to find an acceptable solution to an intractable problem. For example, lions eat people who walk on the ground. What can I do to keep from being eaten by an attacking lion? Well, I've never climbed a tree but I did dream of climbing one. Maybe, if I climb a real tree in real awake life, I can escape an attacking lion?
Dreams are the subconscious mind's language. Everything is symbolic because your subconscious communicates that way. That's why dreams, to the awake mind, don't make sense on the surfact. But, seeing a honeybee in a dream MAY be symbolic of something that has a reward but a danger to it, say: selling illegal drugs. But, if you've never seen nor heard of a honeybee, your brain would not use that symbol as a device to explore the ideas surrounding selling illegal drugs.
Because these symbols have meaning only to you, runic symbols could mean anything. Also, things like climbing a mountain that is magically refusing to be climbed usually in symbolic of working hard for something that you do not yet have but requires lots of effort or lots of time, etc.
Seeing someone who looks like someone you know is the brain's symbolic logic being maxed out. The brain says, this is symbolic of your father, but your awake brain would have difficulty considering murdering your loved father but the concept your brain is trying to study needs to consider murdering your father. So, because the awake problem is that important, the brain uses that someone to symbolize your father but makes it very very close to you knowing that it is representing your father.
Using what we know (water is wet, ice cream is cold, birds fly to escape foxes) the brain plays with symbols to represent the world around us and even violate the laws of physics to bring about a possible solution to something you are worried about.
