This racial perspective to the conventional biblical story, the producers say, "is sure to challenge Conservative Christian beliefs."

Not in the least. We conservative Christians know that Jesus was no blond-haired, blue-eyed Nordic type.

He lived and gave His life for everyone, regardless of race. He has been alive for eternity. What the color of his skin was for 33 years 2000 years ago is of no consequence.

Liberals are always late. They're always making it their business to challenge other people when THEY are the ones with the big time issues.

Why?

I have read the Bible and can not recalled the color of Christ's skin was ever mentioned. When one sees Jews / Israels their skin color rages from white to black and all in between, so whats the "deal"?

Jesus died for all of humanity. Skin color - of those saved or the One who died to save us - doesn't matter a bit. Only a race-obsessed leftist would think so.

Jesus came as everyone's savior. If it works for a person to picture him as white, black, Asian, or whatever, that's fine with me, though I think it sort of misses the point. I'm fine with black Santas, too.

Jesus looked like a typical Hebrew at the time. He was so nondescript that even the Romans couldn't pick him out of a croud which was why Judas had to kiss him in the Garden so they got the right guy.

The reason for the movie seems to be to say that racism was an issue in the crucifixion.

That is novel, there is no indication in the Bible that this was so.

It seems to be a rather crude attempt at exploitation of religion for the sake of making a political point.

Why the automatic equation of "conservative Christian" with racist? Sheesh...

Since I have yet to meet a liberal who can challenge anyone intellectually, I'm going to take a wild guess that this will star Denzel Washington, and the last 20 minutes of the film will have him reciting his "I'm the little man fighting back" speech, then the people will release him from the cross unharmed and the bad Romans will be thrown in the cellar. Jews will be played by muppets.
