Is Jack Bauer Really Jesus?

Well, of course not. But Jack Bauer, the lead character from the hit television show 24, does seem to be "type-ish" of Jesus. In Christian-ese, that means that his characteristics and actions are similar to, or in some ways mimic those of Jesus.

I've mentioned before that entertainment that follows the life of Christ is always more successful than entertainment that is not. Check out this trailer for the new season of 24. Mark Driscoll points out...

"The trailer repeatedly says that Jack "must be sacrificed" to save the multitudes who will supposedly be given life through his substitionary death. Does this sound like anyone you know? A young, healthy, innocent guy dies for a whole bunch of people and willingly lays down his life as a sacrifice for them?"

Do you see the similarities? Leave a comment and tell us what you think.
