Watch This Space...

Catholic World News had this little snippet to report...

Apparently, Iranian film makers are making a movie about the life of Christ, but based on the teachings of the Qur'an... in other words, "Jesus, God's Spirit" will honour Jesus as a prophet but not recognize him as the Son of God.

The film's director, Nader Talebzadeh has been quoted as saying that the completed film will be "better than Mel Gibson's Passion."

Umm... No. "Holy prophet crucified by Romans" versus "Son of God, crucified for our sins, defeats Satan and rises from dead." No contest.

UPDATE: I've just been corrected on a tenet of Muslim belief... "Holy prophet spared by God, allows another to be crucified by Romans instead" versus "Son of God, crucified for our sins, defeats Satan and rises from dead." Even less contest.

Certainly no contest. But I understand that the muslims don't even believe that Christ was crucified. Rather, they believe that God spared Him, and someone else was crucified in His place.

Ooops, forgot that bit... Thanks. I've amended the post accordingly!

So basically, this film will put forward the idea that the last two thousand years have been a bit of a waste of time then?

I'll give it a miss!
