1) After Rowan recovers, he and his rescuer journey to meet up with the Resolutes. Who did they represent?
I thought it was really neat how they represented the people today who fight against the suppression of freedom - and more specifically, religious freedom. The Resolutes in Sir Rowan also represented persecuted Christians in the end times who will wage spiritual warfare through prayer.
2) When Gavaah explains his gruesome game for Rowan's and Mariah's lives, he indicates that the people love a bloody fight and want more because that is the way of the human heart. Do you think it is true?
It is sad, but often this seems true. Jeremiah 17:9 says "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked." Just look back on history...at the Romans, for example, as they watched gladiators kill each other for their amusement. Look at the kind of movies that are being produced now adays - many are full of blood and gore. And while this may seem different because we know they are 'acting'...it still shows that we take enjoyment in watching gruesome stories of people suffering or being killed by others...
3) After Rowan looses someone dear to him, he is angry and desires revenge for the wrongdoing. What does the Lord say about vengeance?
A perfect answer for this is to quote Deuteronomy 32:35, which says "To me belongeth vengeance and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste." Following this one by Romans 12:19 which declares, "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourself, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
