Indulgence Justified

Mark Driscoll just published an article about how Jesus and Jack Bauer have more in common than one may think. Mark gives a list of seven similarities he sees between Jack and Jesus. He then says this about the show:
24 is easily the best show on television despite the many reasons it conceivably should not be. First, the show is long, lasting an hour a week. Second, the show is complicated and unless you rent the DVDs and begin in season one and work your way up through season five, the storyline really makes no sense. Third, it is just the type of kill-the-bad-guys, do-whatever-it-takes-to-defeat-evil, macho, alpha-male, action-hero kind of show that our less than manly culture would see as too violent, too intense, and too dudely.

But the show works for the same reasons it could have failed. And it is also a great case for expository Bible teaching...
The last sentance caught my attention, of course.

Actually, he makes a pretty good point. If you want to see what Jack and Jesus have in common (obviously in a very diminished fashion in Jack Bauer), and what the storyline of 24 and the Biblical exposition have in common, click here.

    You use a lot of big words. How to understand it all?

    I PROMISE YOU

    WE ARE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS. I WILL NOT LET HENDERSON CUT A DEAL. JUST STAY RIGHT THERE AND I WILL CALL YOU WHEN I FIND THE CINTAS NERVE GAS.

    (Let's just say, I don't think Jesus would shout as much as Jack Bauer does. I think the show has already run its course.)
