Transcript of Christ Figure Archetype

Literary Archetype Why do writers use Christ figures? Chris figures The sacrifice of a character is amplified when referenced against Christ's greatest sacrifice
The connection accentuates a theme of hope or redemption
An ironic connection can be made, to make a character appear less significant Jesus is iconic. This means
that he has become a symbol. How do I recognize a Christ figure? Think of the attributes of Christ In a book or film, a character
may display similar traits, indicating
that they are a Christ figure. 1) crucified; wounds in the hands, feet, side, and head 2) in agony 3) self-sacrificing 4) good with children 5) good with loaves, fishes, water, wine
7) performed miracles 10) often portrayed with arms outstretched 9) spent time alone in the wilderness
12) had a confrontation with the devil; faced temptation
6) buried, but arose on the third day 11) had disciples, twelve at first, although not all equally devoted
8) very forgiving Whenever you find a Christ figure in literature or film, ask yourself why the author has used this archetype. That will direct you towards the theme of the work.
