The ninth gate chess problem!

Well, I had seen the movie (the ninth gate) and I quite liked it but to be honest, I 'd never notices that one of the engravings showed had actually CHESS involved! Yes, that's right and I found out by accident.

Well, let's have a look since it's interesting. The engraving showed is the following and it represents the 7th gate:

What I found out on the internet was that the position displayed is this:
This is a draw and you can try it on board for yourselves. Of course, the white bishop delivers a check so black must capture the piece. After that white has no time to checkmate black. Have a look if you want, in a puzzle form in order to be more tempting :-)
 
Below the engraving, it says:

“The disciple outshines the master.”

As I write, the player is a King (white) versus a Begar (black) but the meaning behind it is that man can be equal to God with the proper knowledge. I thought it was quite fascinating and I wanted to share it with you, since chess is involved! Cheers

The soundtrack of the movie is also astounding! Listen to it and you 'll like it probably...
