Strange synchrinicity. I was watching The NeverEnding Story the other day with my kids and, what do you know, this evening I stumbled upon this: Falcor Jesus.

Not as derogatory as Zombie Jesus I suppose but still trivializes him.

  1. Interesting picture, Matt. I remember the movie well as an interesting piece of fantasy. But I wonder whether the zombie Jesus, particularly in the context of the Zombie Last Supper, is as disrespectful in all perspectives as we might think. I wrote on this on my other blog a while back. The image can be helpfully thought provoking:

    And while many may mean disrespect or superficial pop culture play through the zombie Jesus, it is not hard to connect the dots on non-Christian thinking on this:

    Perhaps even with such troubling imagery we might be asking what this says back to the church.
