The Netflix series “Messiah” produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey has perplexed Jesus followers who are left wondering what message the series creators were looking to share in this obscure show.

Will he “convert you or con you?” the 10 episode series trailer for “Messiah” asks.

The series was released Jan. 1 and stars “Mission: Impossible” actress Michelle Monaghan. She plays CIA agent Eva Geller who is determined to get to the bottom of a worldwide phenomenon surrounding a religious man referred to by some as Al-Masih (Mehdi Dehbi) who claims to be sent by God.

Created by Michael Petroni, “Messiah” depicts peoples’ reactions toward an ambiguous Christ-like man claiming to be sent from God who builds a worldwide following of people from different religious backgrounds, including Jews, Christians and Muslims. What makes the series compelling is that the filmmakers also imagine how secular society might respond to a man claiming to be the Messiah in this day and age.

A conflicting part of the series is that Al-Masih never states what he believes. Many of his attributes mimic Christ, such as walking on water and raising the dead, among many other things, but this second coming is not in line with what the Scriptures teach. The Bible is clear that Christ’s return will be a sight the entire world will behold.

  1. A movie is a movie is a movie. All past movies using ‘religious’ names such as ‘Noah’ were completely a disappointment and nothing close to the truth. I have not seen this movie (yet), but do not expect much of it.

    That said the difference in interpretation about the coming of the Imam Mahdi is indeed important and interesting. We should discuss the different points of view. Keep watching out for it !!!!

  2. Rafiq: we have different interpretation
    According to God’s word.

    Revelation 22:12; Listen! say Jesus, I am coming soon, I will bring my rewards with me to give to each one according to what he has done.I am the first and the last, the beginning and the end

    Revelation 21:7″ Listen says Jesus: I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

    So I strongly believe that Messiah will come from Christianity, Not from Prophet Muhammad’s followers

    With love ❤️

    • Somi and Rafiq. I think that Somi can never understand our explanations and keeps on with whatever he originally believed. And Somi and Rafiq. When Somi repeats the same thing again and again Rafiq is annoyed and when Somi is silent Rafiq is worried whether may be he is sick or something … ah well, such is life.

  3. The main question for the second coming, of interest to both the Christians and the Muslims is that would it be 2050 year old Jesus, may peace be on him, coming back on some flying saucer or person will be born on our planet to a human mother, like all other billions of humans, and be a second coming in spirit and metaphor?

    I for one do not believe in flying saucers or for that matter floating carpets!
