“…as if he was Moses”
In the scene at the end of ‘The Incident’ when Ben is whining to Jacob about the fact that he never got to see Jacob, he says:
‘I did as I was told. But when I dared to ask to see you myself, I was told, “You have to wait. You have to be patient.”. But when he asked to see you?
He gets marched straight up here as if he was Moses.’
My point is not that Locke/Rival/Bob is (some kind of) Moses but something else.
In the Bible Moses was one of the first and few people who got to see and ‘meet’ God ‘face to face’. Ben’s words in my opinion point out that Jacob is in fact God, or connected to God or something.
His words could have been chosen by the writers on purpose as an extra ‘clue’.
I think it is, but maybe that’s just because I’m totally buying the theory that Jacob and Rival are in fact God and the Devil (or connected to).
I watched that first scene a dozen times now, and the more often I see it, the more I’m starting to think the God/Devil theory could be very very true, or close to true.
