Did you see the controversy about the comedy film from Brazil released on Netflix this past December?
The Jesus in the film had a flamboyantly gay friend and struggled with the concept of how he could be God and man at the same time. While played for laughs, I didn’t experience the film as disrespectful. I saw it as a honest examination of how radical Jesus was and how conforming his modern followers often are by contrast.
Your writing here made me remember that.
