Person Of Interest & The Trinity!

Very often a movie or TV show offers some symbolism
(even thought flawed because of our "fallen natures").
One show that clearly demonstrates - at least partially -
the Trinity from the One True God of the Bible is the CBS
New Mega-Hit show in it's first season: Person of Interest!

Consider that the mysterious computer system represents
the 3rd Member of the Holy Trinity that seeks out those
who are in trouble and in need of help.

Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), the reclusive billionaire
represents God - The Father who desires to help (save)
many & has great concern for any & all in dire straits!

John Reese (Jim Caviezel) represents (though imperfectly)
the Second Member of the Trinity in the way that he puts
his life on the line just as Jesus did on the Cross to save
each of us!

Every TV show, movie, novel, commercial has a worldview -
it's impossible not to - because we are creatures (fallen)
of a perfect Creator & made in His image. Next time you
watch any of these, see if you can figure out the Worldview -
whether it is Biblical, anti-family, anti-American, pagan,
humanistic, etc.

Another example of this is C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia
series where Aslan also represents the 2nd Member of the Trinity.

Show Details According To Wikipedia:

Person of Interest is an American television crime
drama broadcasting on CBS. It is based on a screenplay
developed by J. J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan. The series
revolves around a former CIA agent (Jim Caviezel) recruited
by a mysterious billionaire (Michael Emerson) to prevent
violent crimes in New York City. On March 14, 2012, CBS
announced that the series had been renewed for a second

John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former Green Beret and CIA
field officer, is living as a derelict in New York City
after an unspecified incident which left him presumed
dead. He is approached by Harold Finch (Michael Emerson),
a reclusive billionaire who is also presumed dead and
living under an assumed identity. Finch explains that
after 9/11, he built a computer system for the government
which uses information gleaned from omnipresent surveillance
to predict future terrorist attacks. Finch discovered that
the computer was predicting ordinary crimes as well. While
the government was not interested in these results, Finch
became interested in making sure that the crimes which were
predicted were stopped. He hires Reese to act as the muscle
and conduct surveillance. Through a back door which Finch
had built into the system, the two receive a social security
number for someone who will be involved in an imminent crime.
Without knowing what the crime will be, when it will occur,
or even if the person they're after is a victim or perpetrator,
Reese and Finch must try to stop the crime from occurring.


Aslan, the Great Lion, is the central character of C. S.
Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia series. He is the eponymous
lion of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and his role
in Narnia is developed throughout the remaining books. He
is also the only character to appear in all seven books of
the series.

He is depicted as a talking lion, the King of Beasts,
son of the Emperor-Over-the-Sea; a wise, compassionate,
magical authority (both temporal and spiritual); mysterious
and benevolent guide to the human children who visit; guardian
and saviour of Narnia. The author, C. S. Lewis, described Aslan
as an alternative version of Christ, that is, as the form in
which Christ might have appeared in a fantasy world.

Aslan is Turkish for "lion" and was also used as a title by
Seljuq and Ottoman rulers.

Throughout the series, it is stated that Aslan is "not a tame
lion," since, despite his gentle and loving nature, he is powerful
and can be dangerous. He has many followers, which include vast
numbers of Talking Beasts, Centaurs, Fauns, Dryads, Dwarfs, Satyrs,
Naiads, Hamadryads, Mermaids, Silvans, Unicorns, and Winged Horses.
Lewis often capitalises the word lion, since, at least partially,
he represents Jesus. - Wikipedia
