Vulcan Messiah: Spock as a Christ Figure
Category: Discussion Panel
No one intended for Spock's story to be a metaphor for the story of Jesus. No one intended the character of Spock to reflect Christ. Amazingly, though, a surprisingly rich symbolic portrayal of the gospel can be found in Spock, especially in Star Trek II, III, and IV. Yes, even the funny one with the whales! Drawing on three chapters from his book, The Gospel According to Star Trek: The Original Crew, author and speaker Kevin C. Neece shares the incredible imagery upon which he stumbled while researching Star Trek. Spoilers abound, but the discussion will be, well, fascinating!
