Paper Vader Jesus: Pray to the Dark Side of the Force

I never thought about making a papercraft art piece featuring Darth Vader myself, but other people certainly have. In this case, one artist posed Darth Vader like he’s Jesus Christ himself – a bit of a contradiction with Vader’s Dark Sided ways. In place of the sacred heart is the Death Star, of course.

Holy Week

Easter is upon us and this year, it’s on the same weekend as Tomb Sweeping Day in Asia. I always find it moving when I see other people pray.

Happy Easter

Aimez-vous les uns les autres comme je vous ai aimés.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:7 (King James Version)

{8:1} Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. {8:2} And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. {8:3} And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, {8:4} They say unto him, Master, this woman  was taken in adultery, in the very act. {8:5} Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but  what sayest thou? {8:6} This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with [his] finger wrote on the ground, [as though he heard them not. ]{8:7} So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. {8:8} And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. {8:9} And they which heard [it,] being convicted by [their own] conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. {8:10} When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? {8:11} She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
John 8:1-11

Book Of Revelation

I’ve been reading the Book of Revelation recently.

Included in these readings is the Whore of Babylon and The Beast of Revelation. Several things have spurred my interest in these matters. From The Ninth Gate, Mother of Tears, to Southland Tales and Quicksilver. Even watching old reruns of Rome on the History Channel with my roommate have made me curious. I’ve read the Bible, but this was years ago, when I was 13 in secondary school. I went to a Catholic secondary school, which was run by Capucins brothers.

I got a copy of the King James Holy Bible (PDF). It’s fascinating to read about the Apocalypse. I’ve always been interested by the different holy texts that exist. I’m most interested in the significance of Jesus of Nazareth and his impact to the many faiths of Earth.

I was watching Conan the Barbarian last night. As he was crucified to the Tree of Woe, I thought of Jesus Christ.

A beautiful verse from the Bible, full of meaning and thought. I’ve enjoyed it many times.
