JESUS – MORE THAN A HERO

In 2017 Star Wars fans around the world eagerly awaited the release of Episode 8, “The Last Jedi.” People analyzed the remarkable success of these films dating back to 1977. Frank Pallotta, media reporter for CNN Money, said that Star Wars connects with many who long for “a new hope and a force of good at a time when the world needs heroes.”

At the time of Jesus’s birth, the people of Israel were oppressed and longing for their long-promised Messiah. Many anticipated a hero to deliver them from Roman tyranny, but Jesus did not come as a political or military hero. Instead, He came as a baby to the town of Bethlehem. As a result, many missed who He was. The apostle John wrote, “He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him” (JOHN 1:11).

More than a hero, Jesus came as our Savior. He was born to bring God’s light into the darkness and to give His life so that everyone who receives Him could be forgiven and freed from the power of sin. John called Him “the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”

“To all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God”. Indeed, Jesus is the one true hope the world needs. – Our Daily Bread

  1. “..a time when the world needs heroes.” I’m pretty sure Director Fury said that in one of the Marvel movies, probably The Avengers.
    I’m entirely thankful for Jesus and what He has done for me.
