As I’ve been finishing off the manuscript of my book on the burial of Jesus (which should be available from Booksurge in a few weeks if the process goes smoothly), I started thinking (as I often do) about LOST.
On LOST, Jack begins catching glimpses of his deceased father. Eventually he finds the empty casket. For a while, we wonder whether we are dealing with something “supernatural” or merely a combination of coincidences and hallucinations.
LOST clearly explores spiritual and religious themes. In this particular case, is LOST exploring the rise of faith in the resurrection? And if so, what more might it develop along these lines?
Does anyone know what the chronology of the survivors on the island is? When Jack finds the casket in the episode “White Rabbit“, was it by any chance their third day on the island?
