Quotations

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - Comic

" A comic strip is a sequence of drawings arranged in interrelated panels to display brief humor or form a narrative, often serialized, with text in balloons and captions." - this is the definition found when searching the word 'comic'. That quote comes from Marvel Comics, a publisher of comics, founded in 1939 by Martin Goodman. One of the best known creators is Stan Lee. He made famous creations like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Hulk, Daredevil, Iron Man etc ...

This story is about Indiana Jones, a fictional character. Indiana was a professor of archaeology and an adventurer living just after the first World War. As an adventurer, he travels around the world in search of archaeological treasures. Characteristic elements of his outfit are his hat and his whip. Some of the more important, valuable archaeological items he searches for are ....the Ark of the Covenant, the cross of Coranado, the Holy Grail and the Crystal Skull of Akatar.

The story we show is called "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Henry's father, who has disappeared, is an expert on the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail in the fictional story, is the cup that Christ used at the Last Supper, the cup that caught Christ's blood during his martyrdom and entrusted to Joseph of Arimathea (note: this myth is not rooted in the Bible). At the end of the story Indiana Jones has to pass three trials to get to the Grail. The second test consists of jumping on the letters that spell out the divine name.

We have also found an older edition. This was drawn in black / white. Note that the drawings in the newer version are identical. We are therefore convinced that the same publisher produced both editions.

The aim of quotation: the quotations are in support of the fact that even in our present day the Divine Name is well-known and used. It is particular interesting to see here that in Latin the character J is not used. It is replaced in Latin by I. Jehovah becomes therefore in Latin Iehova (h) or Iehovae.
