Biblical Themes in “The Mandalorian”

The Mandalorian and the Razor Crest.

In the Star Wars Universe, the Mandalorians are proud people who have had their homelands burned, their leadership broken, their tribes scattered, their wealth stolen, and their strength exploited.

THE REDEMPTION OF THE REMNANT

“Then I Myself will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their pasture, and they will be fruitful and multiply. 4 I will also raise up shepherds over them and they will tend them; and they will not be afraid any longer, nor be terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 23:3–4 (NASB)
