One of the main underlying themes of this series is [[wikipedia:List_of_Daredevil_characters#Matt_Murdock_/_Daredevil|Matt Murdock]]'s spiritual journey based on his [[wikipedia:Catholic_Church|Catholic faith]]. A recurring theme in the series is Matt's conflict of conscience in truly fighting evil without participating himself in evil actions. His moral compass tells him that he must not murder another human being in order to bring about justice. He sees that the only way to stop certain villains is with force, but he is conflicted about being himself the [[wikipedia:Devil_in_Christianity|devil]] when forced to respond to violence with violence. And here the title of the series comes into play, between Matt's being a [[wikipedia:Stunt_performer|daredevil]] coming to a fine line with his being a [[wikipedia:Devil|devil]].

Another significant theme is that of Matt's [[wikipedia:Visual impairment|physical blindness]]: Matt lives in a world of darkness, afraid that he himself might succumb to the darkness. While his [[wikipedia:Visual impairment|physical blindness]] gives him superior physical abilities, he is however afraid of interior blindness in not seeing the way of righteousness, similar to Jesus' reproach of the [[wikipedia:Pharisees|Pharisees]]:

{{Quote|text=<sup>12</sup> Then his disciples approached and said to him, “Do you know that the Pharisees took offense when they heard what you said?”  <sup>13</sup> He said in reply, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.  <sup>14</sup> Let them alone; they are blind guides (of the blind). If a blind person leads a blind person, both will fall into a pit.”|title=Gospel of Matthew 15:12-14}}
