Re: Happy Hobbit Day Everyone!
Ever notice Frodo's similarity to the scapegoat in the Old Testament?

But Tolkien added a twist...
Matthew 7:2 & 7:12 are a prophecy specific to you, "By the judgment that you judge, you will be judged. And by the measure that you measure, you will be measured.... Whatever you want a person to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets."

What's really cool about hobbits, is that Tolkien based them on himself, in most everything but size! Like hobbits, Tolkien loved a pint of beer, a pipe of tobacco, and good food, and was distrustful of modern technology.

I think he (she?) means the general idea of a scapegoat in the Old Testament; one "goat" sent into the wilderness for some purpose, while another is sacrificed (Gollum).

If anyone has ever written on this subject, I haven't seen it. So here you go, a GLP first...

In the scapegoat story there are 2 goats: one cast into the wilderness to perish, and one that stays in the temple.

The fates of Frodo and Gollum are inextricably bound, and so together they represent one scapegoat. Bilbo is the other goat, the one receives the favorable lot.

Like Lev 16, the priest casts upon the head of the scapegoat (around Frodo's neck) the sin of the nation (the Ring), and then a designated man (Aragorn) brings the scapegoat (Frodo with Gollum) into the wilderness (toward Mordor) to a high cliff (Mt. Doom) to perish. But in a scapegoat twist provided by Tolkien, it is Gollum that perishes with the sin, not Frodo.

Technically in Lev. 16 it didn't explain the scapegoat's death, so there is room for Tolkien's twist.

Meanwhile, Bilbo is the goat who received the favorable lot to enter the temple/mountain of treasure guarded by the dragon, and later (Lord of the Rings) Bilbo stays in Rivendell while Frodo goes into the wilderness.

In interviews, Tolkien highlighted that his dwarves were similar to J-ws. The dragon in Bilbo's story (the Hobbit) represents Satan.

Frodo has a sacrifice and redemption theme. Frodo goes to sacrifice his own life as an offering, in order to stop the incessant killings from Mordor. How does Frodo's choice to sacrifice his life create anything other than death? The answer may be that life and death are made from the same foundational substance: probability. Remember the casting of lots. Miraculously, the Lord saves even a portion of the scapegoat!

Oh, there is some of that in me! I like beer and food, and simple things, and am, like Tolkien and hobbits, somewhat distrustful of technology; for instance, it is 2022, and I have never owned a cell phone! Need my computer though for entertainment, since I will not have a TV in my house. It's almost literally a demonic portal.

You do seem qualified to analyze LOTR! Yes, as I'm sure you know, Valinor IS Heaven, and Tolkien based his mythology on Roman Catholic ideas. Morgoth in The Silmarillion is Lucifer, or Satan, and Sauron was his second-in-command who became the Satan of a later age. The Valar are archangels, the Maiar, such as Gandalf and Saruman are lesser angels. I'm sure you knew all that...
