TSoA: Chapter 37, Part 2: Obi-Wan Again
Murphy, Fearless Gum-Popping Leader, and Token Turk (the revised A Team, I suppose) are clearing the last of the supplies from Camp 2, when bad-ass Jedi puppy-killer Obi-Wan shows up again.
Fearless is distrustful of the Obi-Wan, but when the Jedi Master asks Murphy what they are doing, Murphy levels with him.
Obi-Wan tells them that this is not the ark they’re looking for (okay, he doesn’t, but it would be cool if he did) and asks them why they want to find it.
Murphy levels with him again (or, perhaps, is subject to Force Persuade)…
“It would be a great thing for our faith. Faith in Jesus Christ. And the word of God.”
Satisfied, due to his Jedi mind-whammy, that Murphy is telling the truth, Obi-Wan reveals that the ark is located in a specific valley, and tells them how to get there.
“I have climbed there many times. It has been a mild winter this year on the mountain. Almost half of the ark is there for you to see. The rest of it is in a glacier. Most times the whole boat is covered with snow.”
It’s just that simple!
So, Murphy’s “plan” to wander randomly around the mountain and hopefully bump into the boat is improved by this stranger!
No doubt sent by God Himself.
Because that’s the kind of stand-up guy God is.
