A commenter (whom I can only assume is a troll, since they twice assumed that I might not have seen Star Wars!) suggested that the scene in which Darth Vader force chokes General Motti in Star Wars Episode IV might be inspired by the doubting Thomas story in John 20. And so I thought it deserved to be converted into some images, which I am sharing below. I’m curious which looks most like Jesus is force choking Thomas. But I am also interested in some discussion of how the two scenes are similar and different, and what message about doubting and believing is conveyed by them, as readers of this blog understand it.
