“I’ll Be Back”; Jesus and the Terminator


This is a pretty funny video, a sketch from Mad TV; what if a robot from the future had gone back in time to ‘save’ Jesus?

I think it’s sort of ironic that many of us seem to have a vision of Jesus that is something like the Terminator; he’ll be back and when he comes he’s gonna be taking names and kicking some ass. This is a theme that resonates with us throughout history and literature; Richard the Lion Hearted, King Arthur, Napoleon Bonaparte, Douglas MacArthur and Gandalf the Gray.  I think that this ‘non-Christian’ video clearly illustrates the tension that exists between the Jesus of the Gospels and the idea that he would condone violence to vindicate his faithful followers.
