Know another lengthy book where the main character dies and comes back to life? Harry Potter.Like, that that stunt proves that 1) the Bible and God and divine Jesus are true and real, and 2) that other religions aren't as awesome. This is presented as some kind of proof for those that need proof to believe. I can't understand how they can't notice that only the Bible talks about the resurrection, it's not some kind of historically approved miracle.

My high school English teacher, when teaching about literary archetypes (she used examples from Star Wars to demonstrate many of them) made a good case that Luke's encounter with the wampa on Hoth and subsequent near-death experience (his vision of Obi-Wan while laying in the snow) is a metaphorical resurrection. The scene where he's put in a bacta tank to heal and comes out of it is like a rebirth for him and strengthens his bonds with his friends. This is all part of the hero's journey.Johanna wrote:How is Luke resurrected?
I can only see the usual "hero's journey"

Every name that is considered powerful(not all are sacred) has great influence in mind,spirit and emotion and reasonings.As a Christian, The Holy Scriptures containing books of old and new Testaments are perfect history records where events can be analyzed how the CREATOR made everything and how the enemies of the HOLY ONE created a weaker part of creations by alternating the mind/belief about the commandments of GOD.The First part (creations for God/go with Him) is principle of perfecting the status as special creation. The second part(separating from GOD- though insisting they have gods too)is principle of moving away from reality and trying to shape themselves in their own world that do not agree with high standards of First part. There are spirit guides and not all guides can lead you/them to HOLY ONE.(YHWH). The Word that became Flesh which is the Lord Yeshwah is the work of GOD for the redemption of man from punishments-because of inherited sins. He is the one who has the words of assurance/promise for anyone who accept and believe HIM.Even religion oftentimes fails because of the self centered interests of their speakers.So when He in the form of Spirit abides you from reading His words to complete duration of life- you are priviledged one.
