Cinema’s First Black Jesus Portrays True ‘Color of the Cross’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new movie claims to have the debate over Jesus Christ’s true ethnicity in its cross hairs, and for those who argue for a Black Messiah, it’s the answer to all their prayers.

The movie is called Color of the Cross, and it purports to be the first “Christian-based film” in major motion picture history to depict Jesus as a Black man.

The film’s consultant is the Reverend Cecil “Chip” Murray, a L.A.-based pastor for 27 years, and he says it’s about time we confront the true color of the Christian savior.

In Pastor Murray’s words, “Some folks will be upset by this, but, ultimately, it will help all people of all colors heal the wounds” from a lack of knowledge of Jesus’ “true spiritual DNA” and with its message of love and salvation.

Color of the Cross, which stars writer-director Jean Claude LaMarre and actor Debbi Morgan, is expected to arise in theaters sometime this fall.
