Story of Jesus through Iranian Eyes
7 April 2008 | by (Tehran, Islamic Republic of IRAN) – See all my reviews

New Movie by Iranian Filmmaker Tell Story of Christianity From Muslim Perspective In the Award-Winning Movie. A new movie in Iran depicts the life of Jesus from an Islamic perspective. "The Messiah," which some consider as Iran's answer to Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ," won an award at Rome Religion Today Film Festival for generating interfaith dialog. The movie will be adapted into a television series to be shown on Iranian TV later this year. Filmmaker Nader Talebzadeh spoke to ABC's Lara Setrakian in Tehran. LS : why did you feel a movie showing Islam's take on Jesus needed to be made? NT : I've been witnessing what's being going on in Iran for the past 28 years; i've been living here after i lived a decade in America. Everybody knows Jesus, so why not make a film about something everyone related to? And made in Iran. LS : What are the key differences between Jesus through Islam's eyes and Jesus through the traditional Christian perspective? NT : We are talking about the same beautiful man, the same beautiful prophet, the same divine person sent from heaven. In the Koran, it emphasizes maybe three main point : about birth, about the fact that he was not the son of God, and then, that he was not crucified. The rest is the same Jesus...the sermon, and the miracles, and the political situation. LS : So when it comes to Jesus, the message and the reverence are there. NT : Yes. LS : But the virgin birth was the same. The difference in the Koran, God says Jesus was saved. Instead of having him hung and crucified, the person who betrayed Jesus was crucified. This is how the Koran sees it, through the Gospel of Barnabas. LS : So, you gave the alternate ending? NT : Yes, two endings. I through, the Christians, when they see it, it'll important for them. in the Quran God says, emphatically, he was not crucified. Somebody was crucified in his stead. In the Gospel of Barnabas, there are explications of this. The majority of Muslims say the one who betrayed Jesus was crucified. LS : There's plenty of news today about Christians being persecuted, or even killed, today, in Muslim countries. So, where does the Muslim reverence for Christians go off-track? NT : It's doesn't go of track. The Muslim reverence is very high for Jesus and Mary. This is the miss understanding in the West - especially in America.
