Mad Titan or Saviour?

Thanos, the villain in the Marvel movie, ushers in his so called salvation. Here’s a short video looking at the theme of salvation and sacrifice and how we need a rescuer.

Avengers Infinity War smashed box office records. This movie is the culmination of 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and features most of the Marvel super heroes. There’s a strong theme of salvation through sacrifice weaved through the movie.

Why do we find salvation stories so compelling? Is it because we sense that we ourselves need rescuing? We may try to be the saviour of our own story, but as much as we try to be in control of our own lives, we come face to face with our weakness and lack of power.

But we have a superhero, a saviour, to fight on our behalf. God’s son became man. Not just in fiction – but in our own universe.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • So many movies feature themes of salvation and sacrifice. Why do you think we find these stories so compelling?
  • What do you think of the comparisons in the video between Thanos’ so called salvation and Jesus’ salvation?
