I get it, Gandalf is supposed to be Jesus


The Christian metaphors in this movie are so on the nose and obvious.

Don't bring that Christian crap fanfiction into this historical epic!

Or is Frodo supposed to be Jesus, since he carries the Ring and has to destroy it?
Or is Aragorn supposed to be Jesus, since he's a king waiting for his return?
Maybe it's more complicated than you thought.
After all, it's not like this is "Narnia" and we all know that Aslan and only Aslan is Jesus.
