Not Whom You Wrongly Think It Looks Like
In "Casting the Devil Out of the Jesus Story," Craig S. Keener, writing for Christianity Today (February 25, 2014), informs us that a TV miniseries titled The Bible, which was "created and produced by husband and wife duo Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, was a 2013 sensation, raking in more than 100 million views" and being "nominated for three Emmy awards." Remarkably, I'd never heard of it, even though it raised some controversy:
But amid the hype came controversy. The same episode that debuted Jesus also included scenes with the devil . . . [and] some [people] were claiming that the actor who played Satan looked like President Obama.Really? Let's take a look at the image provided by the History Channel:
Ummm . . . hmmm . . . well . . . uh . . . I don't think this image looks at all like President Obama. The actor plays a Satan who looks at least a decade older than Obama and has a chin wart. Those are two huge differences. Why, I bet in ten years, Obama still won't have a chin wart.
So, no, this looks nothing like Obama, not at all even close, because a whole decade is a long time.
