New Netflix Series Depicts Jesus Returning to Earth as 12-Year-Old Boy

“It’s actually very reverential—like if I write a Spider-Man comic, I want Spider-man fans to like that comic … if I write a story starring Jesus, I want Christians to like that comic.” 

(Amanda Casanova – Christian Headlines)  Netflix will be releasing a series about Jesus returning to Earth as a modern day 12-year-old in an adaption called American Jesus.

The show is based on Mark Millar’s comic book, also called American Jesus.

“[It] follows a 12-year-old boy who suddenly discovers he’s returned as Jesus Christ. He can turn water into wine, make the crippled walk, and, perhaps, even raise the dead,” says the show’s description. “How will he deal with the destiny to lead the world in a conflict thousands of years in the making?”

Millar, who is a Catholic, said his comic book, American Jesus, is “reverential.”  View article →
