did not change this message in anyway other than to present in


If you all are anything like me then you had no idea what was in

the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. So, through a friend of a friend of

a friend who had a two hour conversation with Quentin Tarantino himself,

I now know, and I thought I would pass along the information because

it makes the movie even 100 times better than it already is.


Remember the first time you were introduced to Marsellis

Wallace. The first shot of him was of the back of his head, complete

with band-aid. Then, remember the combination of the lock on

the briefcase was 666. Then, remember that whenever anyone opened the

briefcase, it glowed, and they were in amazement at how beautiful it was;

they were speechless. Now, bring in some Bible knowledge, and remember

that when the devil takes your soul, he takes it from the back of your



Yep, you guessed it. And what is the most beautiful thing about a

person: his soul. Marsellis Wallace had sold his soul to the devil, and

was trying to buy it back. The three kids in the beginning of the movie

were the devil's helpers. And remember that when the kid at the end

came out of the bathroom with a "hand cannon," Jules and Vincent were

not harmed by the bullets. "God came down and stopped the bullets,

because they were saving a soul. It was divine intervention


Ezekiel 25:17

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities

of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the

name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of

darkness, for he is truely his brother's keeper and the finder of lost

children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengence and

furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And

you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengence upon thee."


I would just like to add to the above that further explanation of why

the Devil take your soul through the back of head maybe found much faster

in literature about Black Magic instead of checking the Bible.

I suggest sitting in your chair for while thinking about this one.

In the word's of Wakko, "Boggles the mind".


"The earth can be any shape you want it/Any shape at all/Dark and cold or

bright and warm/Long or thin or small/But it's home and all I ever had/And

maybe why for me the earth is flat..."
