Way In

The face of Christ

Third Way was pleased to be invited to the premiere of the new BBC interpretation of the Easter story, The Passion. But, much like the Dr Who conventions where various incarnations of the Timelord show up, it was somewhat disorienting to bump into so many actors who have played Jesus previously. Joseph Mawle, this year's Messiah, claimed to have taken inspiration from Philip Yancey's The Jesus I Never Knew.

Odd, then, that our invite came not from the corporation's religion department but the controller of BBC Fiction.
