In this episode of "Tarkin's Top Shelf," Mark, and Becca break-in the binding of those so-called, Sacred Jedi Texts. Well, figuratively speaking, of course. Star Wars is full of many mythical themes and story tropes, and also religion and spirituality too. A lot of these aspects are repetitive, sprinkled throughout the generations of the Star Wars saga. And mostly showcased in the Skywalker line or legacy, starting with Anakin Skywalker. So, without further ado, hit that play button and kick back with some Sacred Jedi Texts exploration, from a Biblical lens. Enjoy "Tarkin's Top Shelf's" journey into the parallels between Star Wars and the Sins of the Father.
