The Gospel according to The Matrix


’m on vacation this week. Among other relaxing things, I’m catching up on my movie watching. Today’s movie is one of my favorites—The Matrix.

Ever since I first watched The Matrix, I have wanted to build an evangelism course around the storyline. It’s probably too late now—I’ve let too much time transpire. The movie is no longer in the public consciousness as it was shortly after it was released. But every time I watch this movie, I am again struck with the gospel narrative parallels.

One such parallel just came up as I’m watching. And I thought I should post it:

“I can only show you the door, Neo. You must walk through it.”

“I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.”
—Jesus (as quoted in John 10:9)
