Here be Spoilers******
Here’s my two cents. I think that the man who we first saw with Jacob represents “evil” and Jacob represents good. BigEvil can take the form of the dead, i.e. Locke, and I think it is BigEvil who was parading around as Christian and Claire.

Not sure about this. With the white flash, and Jacob’s statement of “They’re coming” I think it is possible the past-future group is about to jump to the present time, and they have something to accomplish in the present. I think they are sort of Jacob’s champions, and he sent them to do something in the past, and now that they finished, they will jump forward to accomplish their present-tense goal, which is possibly killing BigEvil (showing Jacob was always a step ahead)
One crackpot sidenote is that Jacob’s tapestry depicted an Egyptian “winged sun” which is tied to Horus, God of the Sky and Sun, and Jacob’s champions all arrived by air.
I think Oceanic 815 still crashes, and it was likely a combination of the two that had to happen.
I don’t believe this was Jacob in the cabin ever. I think that the cabin (and ash circle) were a prison for BigEvil, as evidenced by the fact that ghost Christian was in the cabin when Locke went there a few seasons ago, and BigEvil’s trick is playing dead people. (Which as an aside, means BigEvil has some plan for Hurley, and possibly Miles, although BigEvil was probably just trying to intimidate Hurley into not coming back)
Something interesting about Jacob living in the statue is that Richard’s answer to “what lies in the shadow of the statue?” was translated as “He who will save us all.”
No idea about this one.
No idea…It is possible that the destruction of the statue happened in the event that lead to this BigEvil being trapped in the cabin. The ash surrounding the cabin could be made of parts of the Anubis statue, which somehow keep BigEvil at bay. Notice how DeadLocke was actually this BigEvil character, who must have known where Jacob lived, yet needed Richard to open the door, or break the “ash” that kept BigEvil from entering.
To incite him. Part of his plan is to die. I think to kill BigEvil, Jacob also needs a loophole, and has his own plan in place. As soon as Jacob saw Ben, he knew he could be killed by him, which is possibly why Jacob never was close to Ben before.
The island’s version of Lucifer, or Anubis. He is the Evil to Jacob’s Good.
I bet it is in the Navigator’s journal that Widmore bought at auction. I wish we knew what it said! Whatever it said was good enough for Widmore to navigate the freighter to the island.
I think this happened after Locke’s visit.
I think Jacob has his own plan to kill his evil counterpart.
I think it is the evil entity. It is possible that the evil entity is the smoke monster also, because we know that the smoke monster can take on the form of the dead, ie Alex telling Ben to do whatever “Locke” says, which obviously furthers BigEvil’s plan.
I think Christian is not part of Jacob’s plan, but rather his enemy’s.
Ben was born on the island. He told Juliette that he was the last child born there (aside from Aaron, and if we remember ghosty Claire told Kate to never bring Aaron back, it is possible that Claire is dead and being “worn” by the BigEvil who understands the loophole, and is afraid of Aaron)
I think “Jacob’s” cabin is actually Rose and Bernard’s cabin, and for some reason they left when the BigEvil was trapped there (after 1977, but before 2004)
He is a satan type character, giving him some sort of dominion over the dead. The statue is of Anubis, so it is possible that this evil character is Anubis.
It is possible that Jacob’s own death is required to kill his evil counterpart and Jacob understood that, and made that sacrifice.
If Jacob’s enemy is the smoke monster, then he could have figured it out when child-Ben was taken to him to be healed (and subsequently had his soul taken)
haha I have no idea!
