Exodus 3:14 – And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. (KJV)
In the tail end of the movie our final hero of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was revealed. We the viewers knows his name is Vision but if you think back he actually never said his name. He let us know that he is not Ultron but he is not J.A.R.V.I.S. either. When they ask him what should they call him and he said simply, “I Am”.
To think the character Vision, was go with it was interesting. What made it more interesting is that there wasn’t a single other character in the movie that called him by name. Ultron said that he is “my vision”. When Thor referred to Vision he said he “had a vision” and in the middle of the chaos that was unfolding he saw “him” in the center. When the Avengers needed to go after Ultron they needed all the help that they could get. A few spoilers ahead but follow me as I explain how once again they followed the Bible a bit in this story arc.
Matthew 16:18 – And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (NIV)
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron came out to box office success. My favorite character in the movie was Ultron. He had character and substance. However, I don’t believe that they showed enough of him. One scene in the movie that was noteworthy to me was when he met the twins at the church in the center of the country of Sokovia. In his rambling he actually quoted part of the scripture above, “and on this rock I will build my church.” After watching I would have never guessed that he meant those words in the same way that Jesus meant it when he spoke to Peter. Just not in a positive way of course. Ultron is the villain of the story. Follow me as we take a walk through the Bible and reminisce on a pretty awesome film.
