    Jesus-Naruto? Kyuubi Sage Mode Eyes?


    This is just a quick question to consider. Anyone here notice that Naruto's eyes are shaped like a cross (like the one Jesus had to carry and was also crucified on) and the series of events happening to Naruto that led up to this point, mirror the life of Jesus somewhat? Could we possibly predict the outcome of Naruto due to these implications?

    Re: Jesus-Naruto? Kyuubi Sage Mode Eyes?

    The Cross-shaped pupils were shown when Naruto confronted Nagato's actual body, when he was in Sage Mode and got Nagato's rod launched into his stomach. Naruto's pupils then took on Sage Mode pupils and Kyuubi's pupils and combined them into Cross-shaped pupils. This is certainly not the first time, as I remember also seeing it few chapters ago. I think this is an indication that Naruto has truly become a Sage in terms of body since he can combine natural energy and Kyuubi's chakra together without any hint of frog appearance.

    I doubt Naruto will mirror Jesus in any way, other than charisma and spreading peace. But I don't believe in Jesus or god or whatnot, I think Jesus was just a normal man who knew what to say and do. But Jesus had opposition, while it looks like Naruto's opposition is Madara.

    Re: Jesus-Naruto? Kyuubi Sage Mode Eyes?

    It was a major plot point during the Obito fight, which makes me doubt that you being a reviewer have forgotten that already, so my answer is no. What this series doesn't need is another parallel to another legend/fictional story. Creativity, try it once Kishimoto.

    Re: Jesus-Naruto? Kyuubi Sage Mode Eyes?

    Since the first chapters I see Naruto = Jesus, after he fought Pain I was almost sure of it, and now that Kishimoto used the "forbidden tree" myth, like in Genesis, I'm kind of 99% sure that Naruto = Jesus
    But, of course, he represents mythologies heroes/gods too

    I must be missing something, exactly what about Naruto's life mirrors that of Jesus? I couldn't think of any major events that are comparable between the two.

    I think people generally mean a messiah-like attitude and feel. Not actual similarity in deeds.

    Re: Jesus-Naruto? Kyuubi Sage Mode Eyes?

    I figured there were some events that someone believed were parallels, particularly since the question that is asked is if we'd be able to make some predictions about Naruto's future from Jesus' fate. Otherwise, it's just a matter of references to some sort of saviour, or redeemer, something which is easy to find in any number of tales. The fact that Naruto has been given a peer, of sorts, would put it closer to those that have used brothers as heroes rather than a singular saviour. Considering that there aren't any existing comparisons, in terms of actual events and outcomes, or to be honest, even teachings, it would seem to be strange to think that Jesus' story would have some implications here. Jesus' end game was to be crucified, revived, and ascend to heaven; that doesn't seem like an outcome here, or even something that could be remotely useful as an indicator or guide. It seems even stranger when the basis is the cross-shaped eyes, which exist for a reason, one that we're aware of.

    One of the Twelve that betray him, a Judas probably, however I'm still deciding if Sai is the Judas among the 12 disciples of Naruto...

    No one. It was only naruto who was said to be the destined child or the child of prophecy.

    Well, I agreed to someone who said that Sasuke is probably JUDAS. That fit him very well.

    I mean...Obito did refer to Sasuke as Judas in one of the translations back when Minato sliced him.

    I was right. Proof? Naruto made Kakashi a new eye...which mirrors something that Jesus was able to do in his life time.

    A poor translation taking extreme liberties, no doubt. As far as I'm concerned, the cross shape is just a coincidence. It's what happens when you combine the vertical pupils of a fox with the horizontal pupils of a frog.

    Naruto healing Kakashi's eye is hardly an allusion to Jesus. It's actually a fairly common thing for messianic figures -- even Buddha healed a blind man.

    And yes, Naruto is clearly a messianic figure, so parallels are of course going to be found to Jesus, and other such individuals.


    The "tree of knowledge" or "tree of life" is a recurring theme in the mythology of various civilizations and cultures throughout history.

    In Naruto, the most relevant iconography relating to the Divine Tree is probably the Bodhi Tree and the Sacred Lotus.

    The Bodhi Tree is the tree under which the Buddha achieved enlightenment; he meditated beneath it, was faced with temptations, and overcame them.

    The Sacred Lotus appears in many Indian religions including Buddhism and Hinduism, and has been explicitly referenced several times already. The Gedo Statue was seen sitting atop a lotus blossom sitting in the lotus position, for example, and the roots of the stem of that lotus is what the various Zetsu incarnations have been grown from. The Divine Tree actually resembles a lotus more than a tree, with a single blossom atop a long stem.

    Actually there isn't just one child of prophecy. The Great old Sage said, when Nagato died: "they".

    This could mean that Sasuke, could also be part of the prophecy.

    The old Toad Sage was talking about Nagato when he stated that there were two Children of Prophecy.
