Jonah & Anakin Final

  1. 1. Hero Journey: Jonah and Anakin Skywalker By Bermuda
  2. 2. Thesis <ul><li>Jonah, a biblical character, and Anakin Skywalker, a light saber wielding warrior, seem like two unlikely characters to be compared but I have taken on the task of relating their quite similar journey’s; the journey’s that made them heroes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Jonah <ul><li>Biblical character (old testament) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Jonah’s Journey <ul><li>Call from God to go to Nineveh </li></ul><ul><li>Finds the evil, sinful people of Nineveh unworthy of saving </li></ul><ul><li>Tries to run away-flee to Tarshish by boat </li></ul><ul><li>Encountered a storm to test his faith </li></ul><ul><li>Thrown in to sea, subsequently swallowed by fish </li></ul><ul><li>Realizes his mistake and cries out to God </li></ul><ul><li>Returns to the call (goes to Nineveh & proclaims message of God) </li></ul><ul><li>Returns home angry at God for saving “unworthy” people. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Anakin Skywalker
  6. 7.

  7. 9. 5 Points of Comparison <ul><li>The “chosen one” for their call </li></ul><ul><li>Ran away/fled from the call at some point in their journey </li></ul><ul><li>Hurt people in the process of turning from the path of the call </li></ul><ul><li>Realized their mistake and turned back to their destined path </li></ul><ul><li>Saved people by turning back </li></ul>
  8. 10. The Chosen One <ul><li>Jonah was specifically chosen by God to save the people of Nineveh </li></ul><ul><li>Anakin was the most powerful Jedi in existence-at first considered too old to be trained </li></ul>
  9. 11. Fled From The Call <ul><li>Jonah took a boat to Tarshish </li></ul><ul><li>Anakin began turning evil when he killed the entire camp of Tusken Raiders followed years later by killing everyone in the Jedi temple and continuing to kill people while he ruled the Empire. </li></ul>
  10. 12. Consequences Of Turning Away <ul><li>Anakin nearly kills Padme who was pregnant at the time </li></ul><ul><li>Also fights Obi-Wan, the man he owes his training to </li></ul><ul><li>Jonah could have caused the death of many people on board the boat that he fled on </li></ul>
  11. 13. Realizing The Mistake <ul><li>Jonah spent 3 days in a fish…finally cried out to God to save him </li></ul><ul><li>Anakin met his son who tried to defeat him and told him the legendary phrase “Luke, I am your father” </li></ul>
  12. 14. Turning Back <ul><li>Jonah was spit out of the fish and headed to Tarshish </li></ul><ul><li>Anakin let Luke take him over and removed his helmet-which was his life source </li></ul>
  13. 15. Summary <ul><li>Although it may not seem like these two would have much in common, it turns out that Anakin Skywalker and Jonah’s journey’s at least have a good bit that can be compared. From the past and the future, real and fiction, but both heroes to many. Despite their unwillingness to stick to their intended plan, in the end they are both true heroes. </li></ul>
