Do you want to know who is Jacob from Lost?

Updated on May 14, 2009

Who is Jacob?

Right now I'm thinking too much in time travel in lost, and I think I have an answer to one of the biggest mysteries of the series:''Who is Jacob?''

Well let's start ... First of all you have to understand that the island has been moved to the past, when all the survivors of Flight 815 were still there. The island back to the past, there are two John Lockes island, one in the future and one in the past.

Locke knowing it tries to leave the island, in any way, but their fate is not that. His destin is to stay in island as well as Michel, his fate was up to the ship comply with a mission, if not he could not die of anything. This is different from Locke, he tries to leave the island and how it is not the destination, the only way to fix this is leaving his soul stuck in that place until he returns. John Locke, leaving the island, through the coordinated 305 'in which Faraday cited, that he can return to this.

Who is really Jacob?

Is John Locke the "real" Jacob?
Is John Locke the "real" Jacob?

Returning to the present, as his soul that prey on the island he dies, and comes to the knowledge of other 6 oceanic who left the island, and even Ben. Ben is already aware of all this, and knows that the only way to make John live again is to lead him back to the island, because his soul rests there. More then you wonder, because if Ben knows that Jacob is Locke, because he did not speak, when the 2 were going to shed. It's simple, oque you would do, if you ask someone to''Who is that?''''Are You'' It means not strange? Good people is a complicated theory means, most everything so far is evidence that.

Is Christian Sheppard the "real" Jacob?

There are a few more things that point that Jacob is Locke:

  1. Jacob does not like electricity, so as John
  2. Jacob speaks ''Help me'' to Locke and Ben when the 2 are in the hut
  3. And if you go to Google and search for ''Jacob'', it will display the face of Locke and Jacob.

What do you think of this theory? I guess we all have to wait until the end of season 5, or not!

If you want to review all the past seasons I suggest that you go to eBay and buy a used or new DVD set to see if you missed something. You can find a complete DVD season set for just $3!!! Don't miss this chance!

      I keep thinking of the Titans imprisoned by Zeus. Locke tells Richard it is nice to see him out of those chains and that he just wants to go home. Not sure who Jacob would be though. Also everyone off the island seems to think it holds big trouble for everyone.

      I agree that the island is the Garden of Eden. Beginning of Civilization. The island moves because God keeps it hidden from the rest of the world. Adam & Eve are Rose and her husband. They comment about "all you people do is kill each other (similar to what the man in the black shirt comments to Jacob about the men on the approaching sailing ship.

      Jacob is Able, and the man in the black shirt is Cain who wants to kill his brother, and wants to prove to Jacob that killing is inherent in all mankind. Anti-war/violence message from the show's writers?? I'm still working out who Richard is...maybe he's Cain's son?

      I don't think the island is atlantis, but an artifact of the atlantean civilization. I think that the real jacob and his nemesis are the last decendants of that civilization. The diaspora of that civilization founded the ancient cultures of egypt, greece, india, china. Etc. The island was built to keep the spirits/minds of the dead.

      Interesting, did you see the finale? I was so amazed that Jacob was an actual being that we could see and touch and talk to. And then there's the other guy that was pretending to be Locke that opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for the storyline...

      I would say that or Jacob is Aaron, or Jacob is... Jacob, some kind of God.

      @Afonso I guess we all have to wait, but I guess that answer will no be given until the end of the series. So next season will only give us more courage to watch more and more Lost episodes!

      Thank you for your comment, but i disagree with you. I believe that the island is Atlantis, not the garden of eden. Think of the others as the true and permanent inhabitants of the island, as well as the "magical" powers that it has.

      The Island is the Garden of Eden, Jacob is Able, and the never-aging Richard Alpert is really a penitant Cain
