Was STAR WARS based on…..the BIBLE????? Click to see a few examples…Jesus Daily
Life after death….Virgin Birth….Faith…Redemption.
When Obi-Wan Kenobi called Luke Skywalker to “learn the ways of the Force” and join the rebellion against the galactic empire, the younger man suddenly found all kinds of reasons to contradict his stated goal of leaving Tatooine. When God called Moses to lead the Israelites out of their slavery in Egypt, the adopted grandson of the pharaoh argued against the job four times (Exodus 3-4). Both ultimately followed their calling . . . and changed history.
Christian messages have been part of Star Wars since the original back in 1977. Here are some you might have missed:
We are All Part of Something Bigger
Who would you say is the hero of Star Wars? Maybe Luke Skywalker, he is the last Jedi Knight, and the only one who can defeat Darth Vader. Then again, Princess Leia was leading the rebellion years before he came along. What about old Obi-Wan? He sacrificed everything to give the galaxy a chance at peace, and he even stuck around after death to offer support.
In truth, each of these characters is fighting for something bigger than themselves. No matter how grand their individual achievements may be, it’s all done in the name of preserving galactic freedom. As Christians, we know the Body of Christ is made up of many people. 1st Corinthians even teach us that we all have an important role to play in Christ’s ministry. It doesn’t matter if you’re a princess or a moisture farmer, we are all part of something bigger than ourselves.
