Tertullian and some of the 2nd century fathers looked at Plato and some pagan philosophy as containing the ‘seed of the logos.’ In other words, Christ could be found among the philosophy of the ancients, what Paul might call ‘general revelation’ (Romans 1).
I have found a similar phenomena among recent films:
The Matrix Trilogy
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
and Revenge of the Sith (and the other Star Wars films)
(of course the Passion of the Christ is overtly Christian)
It seems that these films have done much to explore deeper themes and do a better job of asking eternal questions than we Christians have done. What do the readers think?
