The Story of Darth Vader and Luke

Whenever people say something like “Well, Jesus told such-and-such a story about the Old Testament,” I like to use this analogy. If I’m on a stage teaching 1,000 filmmakers a lesson about the power of father wounds in cinema, I may say, “The struggle between Luke and Vader beautifully illustrates how father wounds convey opportunities to learn grace and forgiveness.” Nowhere in that sentence do I reference that I’m referring to a fictional story. The audience knows it. They also get the message based on their knowledge.
