A conservative media watchdog is sounding the alarm about a film in the works that is based on the controversial book, Jesus of Nazareth.
The author of the book, which came out in 2010, is Paul Verhoeven. And according to the Media Research Center (MRC), it is an unbiblical angle on the life of Jesus. Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture for the MRC, expects more of the same in the upcoming film, as it is directed by Verhoeven.
“In this particular version, Jesus isn’t divine,” Gainor details. “He is not the Savior; He’s not the Son of God — He’s just a good guy whose mom happened to be raped by a Roman soldier.”
