Book of Eli (2010)

The Book of Eli is a post-apocalyptic movie that tells the story of a man named Eli, who is on a mission to deliver the last existing copy of the Bible to a safe location. On his journey, Eli comes across several challenges and enemies, but with his faith in God and his determination, he continues his mission despite the odds. The disciples on the road to Emmaus had a similar experience to Eli’s in the sense that they faced challenges and difficulties on their journey.


Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

Though the movie Mrs. Doubtfire and the story of the Road to Emmaus are fundamentally different, their underlying themes reflect the search for understanding, companionship, and a better future in difficult times. This essay will compare and contrast these two stories on the basis of their themes, and analyze how they relate to each other.


Eat Pray Love (2010)

The movie Eat Pray Love, starring Julia Roberts, is a soul-searching journey of a woman named Elizabeth Gilbert who embarks on a spiritual journey to find herself after a painful divorce. This essay relateds the movie “Eat Pray Love” to the Road to Emmaus story, as told in Luke 24:13-35.


The Invisible Man (2020)

Much like Thomas, one of the disciples, who could not believe Jesus’ resurrection until he saw it for himself, Cecilia’s friends and family could not believe her claims of Adrian’s abuse until they saw him with their own eyes.


The Shack (2017)

Mack’s experiences at the shack mirror the events following the resurrection of Jesus. Just as Jesus showed up to the apostles in physical form, metaphorically, God shows up at the shack to comfort and heal Mack’s broken heart.


Risen (2016)

The movie tells the story of a Roman tribune named Clavius who is tasked with finding the body of Jesus after the crucifixion. As he investigates, he begins to question his own beliefs and comes face to face with the resurrected Jesus.


Doubt (2008)

Both the biblical story of Thomas’ doubt in John 20:19-31, and the 2008 drama film “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley, explore the theme of doubt and its effects on the human experience.
