Of course, I’m talking about the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Since Christmas also happens to be this month, I searched my Deep Thoughts, and realized that there might be a connection between the Greatest Story Ever Told and the Birth of Jesus.
What if the Three Wise Men were actually Jedi Knights?
Not only does that concept totally blow my mind, but it also makes Christmas even cooler than it already was.
It totally makes sense, though, right? Baby Jesus was a really big deal. Perhaps there was an Awakening in The Force with His birth, and three Jedi Knights set out to check on the future King of Kings at the behest of the Jedi Council.
Even if they didn’t think Baby Jesus was a Jedi, they’d want to make sure He didn’t fall into the hands of the Empire.
If Jesus ever turned to the Dark Side, what would stop The Nuns from ruling the world? Oh, sweet Baby Jesus, does this mean The Nuns are Earth’s version of The Sith?
Of course, the Three Wise Men, who might have been Three Jedi Knights, would probably have been living, breathing Jedi, rather than Ghost versions. However, you don’t get much wiser than the Three Ghosts of Christmas Past in the above photo, am I right?
The Jedi would’ve arrived bearing gifts. Even though The Bible said those offerings were gold, frankincense, and myrrh, the Four Evangelists (one who just so happened to be named Luke…) might have changed things to keep the presence of the Jedi a secret.
My educated guess is that the Three Wise Jedi would have brought gifts of a Jedi Robe, the droids Jesus would one day be looking for, and a lightsaber.
Search your feelings, Modern Philosophers. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?
According to the story of The Nativity, the Three Wise Men traveled across the desert following a star.
What if that wasn’t a star at all? What if it was a space station capable of destroying planets? A Death Star perhaps?
And doesn’t the whole idea of traveling across a desert evoke images of a certain planet that played a major part in another story from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away?
The more I sit here writing this post as The Force influences my Deep Thoughts, the more I believe that I am totally on to something, Modern Philosophers.
Could Jedi Knights have been at The First Christmas? Did Baby Jesus receive a visit from The Jedi Council?
Clearly, these Three Wise Men were not any of the Jedi we know from the Star Wars films, but do we know for sure that Jedi Knights didn’t roam the Earth a long time ago?
How do we know for sure that the three visitors who followed the star to Jesus’ manger weren’t Jedi?
Search your feelings again, Modern Philosophers. Jedi Knights at the first Christmas, a possibility it is.
I suppose it would be pushing it to say that Daisy Ridley’s Rey was also at Baby Jesus’ manger, but she would make a perfect Mary.
I’m just saying…
I’m not ready to give up on this theory just yet, Modern Philosophers. Any Star Wars fan will tell you that Baby Jesus grew up to not only look like a stereotypical Jedi Knight…
…but He also had powers that would make one think of a Jedi Knight.
Would it really be so out there to think that Three Jedi Knights visited Him upon His birth, and perhaps shared a little Jedi wisdom with Him?
And now that I think about it, isn’t it entirely possible that at least some of the Twelve Apostles were Jedi Knights as well?
Judas turned to The Dark Side and betrayed Jesus to the Romans, the big, bad Empire ruling the world at the time. It all makes sense now. Why didn’t I think of this when I was in Catholic School and could ask The Nuns all about it?
Obviously, The Force wasn’t strong with me at that point.
What do you think about my Jedi at The Nativity theory? Do you think Jesus was a Jedi? At the very least, do you think George Lucas might have been inspired by the story of The First Christmas when he wrote Star Wars?
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters one week before Christmas. Coincidence it is not, my Deep Thoughts say!
