Blasphemous at best
RDtoo | Detroit | 01/21/2007

"The idea of Jesus being black is no more absurd than Jesus being a blue eyed blond. That is not the point. According to the New Testament Jesus of Nazareth was tried and convicted of blasphemy. He claimed to be God which really ticked off the religious leaders of the day. This film throws out that idea entirely and has Jesus being a victim of racial bigotry. The film also reports that the only reason that Jesus was born in a manger is because black folks were not welcomed at the Inn. It dosen't stop there. Jesus is crucified but is not raised from the dead. Just one more misunderstood black man who ain't coming back. This movie will likely appeal to those who are more interested in Tupac than Jesus. The film is the product of modern American political correctness rather than a depiction of Jerusalem 2000 years ago. The only way this could have been made worse if they had subtitled this "Jesus--the Original Gangsta"."

"Please don't waste any money on this film. The idea of the film is wonderful but it never delivers. Between the bad acting and the deviations from scripture you hardly recognize the story at all. The writer seems more interested in furthering his anti-Semitic cause then exploring race issues. If you don't know anything about history, scripture or not really interested in either then you might get something out of it, otherwise skip it. My only regret in that this movie bombed is that people may think that no one is interested in seeing biblical characters being portrayed as people of color when the truth is the movie is just bad."
I pray for a better and more in depth attempt

"I am a black man in America. I saw "The Passion" by Mel Gibson. In the same respect I saw this movie by Jean-Claude LaMarre. I respected Jean-Claude ever since I first saw him playing a role in Malcom X. Yet, after this film I cannot help but feel saddened by his efforts. After all these years, is Jesus' death for the sins of mankind to be cheapened by the result of racial discrimination? The movie did not give an accurate portrayal of the events that led to the death of Jesus Christ. If anyone argues this point, I beg them to go read a Holy Bible."
