The movie’s theological perspective on Jesus is different from what is usually portrayed in christian films. The movie uses Jesus in a low christology way

    my passion for musical theater. For years I have endured ridicule from my sisters and their friends who have overheard me belting out the lyrics to "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof while in the shower. Ever since my first musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, seven years ago, I have been obsessed with the telling of stories through melody and verse.
