How many of you are fans of the television series “Lost”? The new season starts this week, and Newsweek has an interesting report on it titled “The End Is Near.”
“As fans start speculating about the show’s final season (set to launch on Feb. 2), they would do well to remember that more than anything elseâ€”and more than any other acclaimed show ever on televisionâ€”Lost is a show about faith.”
This assessment is certainly correct. I would, however, take it a step further and say that “Lost” focuses on themes related to the Christian faith in particular. It constantly alludes to the Bible, one of the main characters is named “Shephard,” and the promo poster for the new season is made to look like Jesus’ last supper.
It remains to be seen how all of this will be brought together to answer some of the mysteries that have been introduced since the first episode. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
