Wishful Thinking or Literal Scripture?

Messiah (2020)

We came to this show a bit late, since we didn’t have Netflix until May. I’d seen it on the lists but hesitated until last night. Now that I had a first look (episode one) I can see how controversial it could be for fundamental Christians and Muslims alike. And I’m sure the Israelis aren’t thrilled either. After all, the Messiah is supposed to be Jewish.

The series focuses on the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East, whose followers claim him to be the eschatological return of ‘Isa (Jesus). His sudden appearance and apparent miracles spark a growing international following, casting doubts around who he really is, a case investigated by a CIA officer

Even in the first episode, it is obvious that this young man absolutely identifies with his father, God, and calls himself The Word. But his knowledge of what other peoples’ thoughts are, and their concerns, shows me that there is nothing hidden from him. That makes him ‘different’, for sure. But is he the only One? In my humble opinion, no.

When he ‘escapes’ his jail cell, you get glimpses of other potential ‘miracles’ he could perform, including walking on water. But I’m speculating. There are nine other episodes to watch. The show was cancelled in March.

    According to Islamic tradition which describes this graphically, Jesus’ descent will be in the midst of wars fought by al-Mahdi (lit. “the rightly guided one”), known in Islamic eschatology as the redeemer of Islam, against al-Masih ad-Dajjal (the Antichrist “false messiah”) and his followers. Jesus will descend at the point of a white arcade, east of Damascus, dressed in yellow robes—his head anointed. He will say prayer behind al-Mahdi then join him in his war against the Dajjal. Jesus, considered as a Muslim, will abide by the Islamic teachings. Eventually, Jesus will slay the Antichrist, and then everyone who is one of the People of the Book (ahl al-kitāb, referring to Jews and Christians) will believe in him. Thus, there will be one community, that of Islam. (Wikipedia)
