I've had this idea before, in lesser forms, and every time I come back to it there seems to be another piece of evidence supporting it. Maybe some of you've already thought of this or read about it somewhere else.
This is what I've realized so far:
In the story of Jesus, an angel comes down from Heaven to the Virgin Mary, and tells her she is blessed because she will give birth to our savior, Jesus Christ.
In "Terminator," Kyle Reese comes back from the future to Sarah Connor, and tells her she is destined to give birth to humankind's savior, John Connor.
John Connor = J. C. = Jesus Christ
Kyle Reese = The Angel
Sarah Connor = Mary
Heaven, like the future, cannot be easily reached. Visiting either place requires special circumstances. To get to Heaven, one must at the very least die. To get to the future, one must continue to live and allow around 40 years to pass (40 years from 1984, before Judgement Day was shifted around in the sequels).
Makes sense right? Well, here's what I don't get. If John Connor, Sarah Connor, and Kyle Reese each represent a character in the telling of the birth of Jesus, who is represented by… [voice of young John Connor] Miles Dyson!If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
