What is it about Jack Sparrow that makes him, pathetic as he is, so loveable?! He’s a pirate, a drunk, a womanizer. He’s lazy and lacks character. And yet, for all his shortcomings, he surprises you. His men love him, and that says something. He pulls through when needed and shows far more character and compassion by his actions than he would care to admit to. You always get the feeling he’s trying to hide the fact that he’s actually a decent human being, just as he seems to try to hide the fact that he’s also a decent pirate. He’s a lot like the characters in the Bible—deeply flawed, and also surprisingly heroic. Human. In this story, Jack takes a page almost directly out of Essau’s life from the Bible.
