Storyline

Diran Lyons' strategic juxtaposition of the aggressive rhetoric of George W Bush with significant peaceful statements offered by Christ as portrayed in Franco Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth" [1977] recontextualizes content obtained from the news media to reveal - in Nietzschean flair - a greater truth that lies behind this reconfiguration, resulting in an overall critique of neoconservative politics and its claim to theological underpinnings.
