A documentary on the Islamic Republic of Jesus – a man born of a virgin, and a man who worked miracles, but there was no crucifixion and resurrection.
However, there is a Second Coming, when the clouds descend as a Muslim to destroy the Jews and ‘swine’.
The Muslim Jesus uses the Quran and other Islamic texts to explore the different ways in which Christian and Muslim faiths both acknowledge Jesus.
Academics, teachers, parents, rappers, poets and historians come together for the one-hour special narrated by Melvin Bragg.
The differences between the Qur’an and the biblical image of Jesus are explored in detail, from the role of Mary and his death and resurrection, the coming of the Antichrist.
