    Abstract:
    This essay makes direct comparisons and correlations between Steven Spielberg's E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and the New Testament story of Jesus of Nazareth. In addition, the article situates the film (the highest-grossing movie ever, at that point) in its political and historical moment, the Age of Reagan.
