Christ on the Cross
(stabbed with spear by a Roman soldier)
Christ on the Cross was painted by the 17th-century Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens in 1620, at the height of his career. The sense of movement, swirling line, and dramatic light are characteristic of Rubens’s distinctive style. This painting is now part of the collection of the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, Belgium.
(in box: the Spear of Longinus)
Spear of destiny is one of several other known names of a spear that claimed to pierce Jesus while he was on the cross. Other names given to the spear including; Holy Lance, Spear of Longinus, and the Spear of Christ.
According to the legend, it was a Roman soldier namely Longinus who stabbed the Christ with a spear. It was to make sure that Christ was already dead. Longinus stabbed Christ side and from the wound came out water and blood (John 19:34). The Spear has mentioned in the Gospel of John (19: 31-37).
This legendary spear is very influential. Historically this spear had inspired the old era Christians to commence war against Muslims in the First Crusade (Which oddly similar with the GWB decided to commence war against Iraq because of the mysterious bio-chemical weapon of mass destruction. And it turned out he did said it as a “Modern Crusade”). It’s been suggested that the spear had been changed possessions through many hands including kings and leaders of countries. The spear believed as a relic to boost power for those who posses it. It was told to have been seized by Napoleon and possessed by Adolf Hitler. The legendary of the Holy Lance has been inspiring many fictional pieces such as movies, comics, and novels.
There was a theory entitled as “Naruto’s Temporary Death”. The theory was created by an illusive theorist whose name not worth to mention (You may use the “search” function). Basically, the theory was forecasting UN will be dead and return to life again. What seems funny is that theory based on interpretation of several filler anime episode ending clips. Though most people found it as rather over-analyzed, but the idea had brought is not necessarily exaggerated. Heroic returning from death or resurrection-ism has been applied in many plots of stories.
UN is the next target of the Akatsuki. He is the host of the Kyubi designated as a jinchuuriki. Akatsuki need to extract the kyuubi from his body. There will be a ritual of extraction and sealing the kyuubi inside a large statue. This ritual most definitely will cause death to the jinchuuriki.
An Akatsuki whose name is Pein assigned to capture UN. Pein is among the masterminds behind the Akatsuki activity. He thought to have mastered incredible jutsus. He escaped death and defeated Jiraiya, his former master and one of the three legendary ninja. He was observed to use some kind of offensive tool served as a weapon that likely to resemble a spear.
Jiraiys was stabbed by Pein’s spear.

Suppose UN will experience death in next chapters. What will happen? Is there any significant on why we discussing this?
There’s a possibility Kishimoto Masashi has been assimilating Christ’s into his manga character UN. He might also have tried to put symbolical message in chapter 253 opening page to represents the famous iconography of Jesus’ Fish, Ichthus.
Kishimoto probably had put something symbolic in the particular page 4 and 5 of chapter 238. He might have given us a clue on who will be Naruto’s companion if he eventually facing death.
The most crucial miracle of Christ is the Resurrection. In Matthew 28:9 Christ made appearance to Mary Magdalene after his resurrection.
Haruno Sakura was reviving an unconscious fish. Is this a clue that Haruno Sakura will continue Naruto’s teaching? Is it up to her to continue his church?

Now back to our Mariah Carey song lyric above...
"But when you blinded by your Pain
Can't see your way straight through the Rain
Small but still, resilient voice
Says Love is the relief"
Kishimoto had told us through Jiraiya’s sentences that UN grew exactly like the character from the book. The original context of “book” in Jiraiya’s words is referring to the book that he wrote, as it had been prophesied by the Great Toad. The way UN grown reminded Jiraiya of the way the main character in his book grown; they are both shared similar way of life. But, if you put another context of “the book” into the books that had been written by Matthew, John, Luke and Mark, you’ll get that “book” might have been a gospel. In dictionary Gospel means teaching of Jesus Christ and the story of his life. Jiraiya didn’t realize that he made a gospel, gospel of Jiraiya. Therefore, in chapter 193 page 4, when Hyuga Neji said “You have better eyes than me” to UN he might have told the truth, because UN possess the Eye of Providence.
