The Jewish Superman

The Jewish Superman…

Is it possible that somehow Superman is linked to the Bible and Jewish history? Superman was created in the late 1930s by two Jewish high school kids in New York City.

It was during this time that Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were threatening to destroy the Jewish people. In the comics Superman actually fought the Nazis and defended the Jews.

It seems like Superman’s creators had come up with a substitute for Jesus, a savior. Superman is a testimony of our need for Jesus. It was Jesus who was to defend Israel; to be the Shepherd of Israel, not Superman.

Without Him, Israel has been like sheep without a shepherd, to be devoured by the wolves of this world. The Jewish people still need only Jesus.

The same with us. Whenever we turn away from our Shepherd, we’re in trouble. No matter what we have, we’re still empty. Draw near to Him, He’s the only true Shepherd. Jesus, the Shepherd of your soul and of the need of your heart. That’s better than any superman.

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior. Isaiah 43:11

Today trust Him to keep His Word and defend you. Call on Him in your time of trouble, in your time of need and allow Him to rescue you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
