Some are asking how can you portray the truth about the life of Christ and continue to portray the lie that He was Caucasian. A lot of folks just don't get it. Maybe they don't believe anyone would go see a Jewish or Black Jesus.
Update: Bishop Jakes has come under some serious fire on his Facebook page for encouraging folks to see the movie.
*Saying that the image of a white Jesus is racist and offensive to African Americans, a North Carolina based minister is calling for a national boycott “Son of God” movie that opens in theaters this weekend.
Minister Paul Scott aka TRUTH Minista of the Durham, NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation says that he is outraged that even in 2014, many people in this country still promote the, historically, an inaccurate image of a Caucasian Christ.
He is asking that the black community not support the film which is to be released on February 28, which, ironically is the last day of Black History Month.
