This illustrates one of the final episodes in the last chapter of the first book of the famous trilogy ” The Lord of the Rings ” by J R R Tolkien.
– As a Christian reader I may reflect upon the temptation of Jesus by the devil in the Gospel of Matthew chap. 4:1 – 11. Wasn’t it what the devil wanted AND WHAT HE STILL WANTS, that Jesus should commit his whole mission in the world – to Satan ? –
It is when Boromir and Frodo was discussing , after having visited Lothlorien , and then had been traveling with the rest of the ” Fellowship of the Ring ” along the river Anduin. – Still another bit of the uncertain road towards Mordor ! And they had just arrived to that resting place that became a crossroad – Parth Galen – where Frodo and Sam must leave the others and continue on their own , followed by noone but Gollum.
Boromir was tempted to “.. use the power of the enemy against the enemy himself ..,” and he wanted to take the Ring from Frodo . But Frodo puts on the ring and becomes invisible , and escapes from him.
This scene have also become movie – an animated version made by – among others – Ralph Bakhsi , the not least famous version made by Peter Jackson , and also a version made by some Russian amateur filmmakers (here with english subtitles),
