Christian Episodes of Secular Cartoon Series

This is by no means a massive list, in fact right now I know of only two, though these two are fairly well known. If you know of anymore I would love to know about them, so leave a comment.

  1. A Charlie Brown Christmas – I love this shot at the commericalism of most Christmas specials as Linus lays down the true meaning of Christmas. The majority of episodes though quirky and fun and safe for kids, have no deep spirituality or really life wisdom and are just fun to watch, at least there are loveable characters and the great jazz soundtrack.2 X-Men (Season 2 Episode 18) “Night Crawler” – With a surprisingly deep message, a jaded disillusioned hate filled Wolverine, meets Night Crawler a mutant that has been hated more than most, but is at peace and full of forgiveness. Night Crawler presents his faith to Wolverine and even gives him a Bible. At the end Wolverine begins to repair his relationship with God. Though not mentioning Jesus directly the strong Christian references and message is unmistakable. The biggest surprise is just that this one got on public television.

The Biblical Art of George Tinworth

Some of the amazing George Tinworth art that I have found from various sources:

The “Cities of Refuge” found on George Tinworth’s Wikipedia page

Notice the refugee is wearing a crown of thorns, possibly that he is righteously being persecuted. He escapes from an axe throw through “The Door of Mercy” which the engraved verses around the relief call out John 14:6 that Jesus is the door.

“The Adoration of the Wisemen”
