New Resource: New movie clip discussion starters including "PIRATES OF THE CARRIBBEAN II"

Anyone who has spent any time on our site has noticed that we love to use movie clips to kickstart discussions about Biblical truths. With the launch of new resources like our MUSIC DISCUSSIONS page, some have forgot about the gold mine of great curriculum we provide on our popular MOVIE CLIP DISCUSSIONS page. Check out recent additions to this page like the brand new write up about REGRET/GUILT using Schindler's List, the new one from Ghost Rider about FORGIVENESS/SECOND CHANCES, and this other new one from the second "PIRATES" movie below:

Pirates of the Carribbean II: Dead Man's Chest

(Walt Disney, 2006)

Main Point of Discussion: A relationship with God is our greatest treasure.

The Movie Clip: "It points to the thing you want most is this world."

Introducing the Clip:
Tonight we are going to show you a clip from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Jack Sparrow, I mean Captain Jack Sparrow, owes a debt to the captain of the Flying Dutchman, the terrifying Davy Jones. Facing the "locker," Jack must find the heart of Davy Jones in order to save himself. In this scene Jack tricks Elizabeth into helping him as he explains how his unique compass works.

Let's go ahead a take a look.


Scene Script:

BEGIN CLIP AT 1 hour 17 minutes and 02 seconds.

ELIZABETH SWANN: Jack. I know Will came to find you. Where is he?

JACK SPARROW: Darling, I am truly unhappy to have to tell you this but... through an unfortunate and *entirely* unforeseeable series of circumstances that have nothing whatsoever to do with me, poor William has been press-ganged into Davy Jones' crew.

ELIZABETH SWANN: Davy Jones?

(Norrington vomits over the side, then spits)

NORRINGTON: Oh, please. The captain of the Flying Dutchman.

JACK SPARROW: You look bloody awful. What are you doing here?

NORRINGTON: You hired me. I can't help it if your standards are lax.

JACK SPARROW: You smell funny.

ELIZABETH SWANN: Jack. All I want is to find Will.

JACK SPARROW: Are you certain? Is that what you really want most?

ELIZABETH SWANN: 'Course.

JACK SPARROW: Because I would think, you'd want to find a way to *save* Will the most.

ELIZABETH SWANN: And you have a way of doing that?

JACK SPARROW: Well, there is a chest...

NORRINGTON: Oh, dear.

JACK SPARROW: A chest of unknown size and origin.

(Pintel & Ragetti walk by, together carrying a crate of bottles, and overhearing the conversation.)

PINTEL: What contains the still-beating heart o' Davy Jones.

RAGETTI: Unh-unh... unh-unh... unh-unh...

JACK SPARROW: And whoever possesses that chest possesses the leverage to command Jones to do whatever it is he or she wants, including... saving brave William from his grim fate.

NORRINGTON: You don't actually believe him, do you?

ELIZABETH SWANN: How do we find it?

JACK SPARROW: With this. My Compass... is unique.

NORRINGTON: "Unique" here having the meaning of broken.

JACK SPARROW: True enough. This Compass does not point north.

(Norringon vomits over the side.)

ELIZABETH SWANN: Where does it point?

JACK SPARROW: It points to the thing you want most in this world.

ELIZABETH SWANN: Oh Jack! Are you telling the truth?

JACK SPARROW: Every word, love. And what you want most in this world is to find the chest of Davy Jones, is it not?

ELIZABETH SWANN: To save Will?

JACK SPARROW: By finding the chest of Davy Jones.

(Jack hands the compass to Elizabeth, then draws away quickly so as not to influence the compass.)

(Elizabeth consults the compass, for her the dial clearly points in a specific direction.)

(Jack slowly rises up to peer at the face of the compass.)


END CLIP AT 1 hour 20 minutes and 13 seconds.

Transitional Statement:
Imagine if we all had a compass like that. A compass that pointed to the things we wanted the most. Would we be surprised? Would we be embarrassed? Would we use it? Let's spend some time tonight thinking about the things we want and looking at what the Bible has to say about what our greatest treasure should be.

Divide into Small Groups:
Let's go ahead and split up into our discussion groups, and then afterward we'll come back together for a final word.

Dan Kimball says this about Jonathan's new book:

"This book seriously is one which I believe could help shape and inspire the future of youth ministry evangelism. Jonathan is not afraid to ask the hard uncomfortable questions and doesn't ignore the elephants we normally do about youth evangelism. But, despite the uncomfortable reality he raises, he gives such practical advice and, most of all, hope for the Gospel being communicated to youth."

-Dan Kimball, author of The Emerging Church and They Like Jesus, but not the Church
