Will goes to church where people should be willing to do what is right and help, but instead they back down and leave will to deal with Frank Miller alone this is an instance where religion is something to be relied upon but instead it lets Will down.

He has to feign hope and suppress his inner anguish. In order to build a new civilization in Italy, he can be regarded as a " man of Roman ideal" which is already prophesied. As his journey progresses, he is portrayed as a man who must learn to dominate his passions and will to supplicate himself to a larger duty given to him.
They find what the gods like or dislike. The relationships with their mother and wife shaped them as the men they are because they helped motivate them to do the right thing and get back to their world. While many movies, books, and poems have heroes. Only some are the real epic
While subtle, some of the characters show signs of resistance to Jesus’ teachings, such as John the Baptist when attempting to learn the lesson of forgiving one’s enemies. Ultimately however, each of the 10 disciples gradually come to accept him as a prophet over the course of the film. Admittedly my understanding of Jesus and his followers is very limited and vague, but my understanding seems to align fairly well with that of the film. The twelve apostles were called upon by Jesus and all left their respective live in order to answer the call, with John the Baptist beginning to follow Jesus after Jesus’ baptism. This aspect definitely aligns with the opening scene of the film with all of the
