The BBC Passion

The BBC has begun promoting its [new version of the Passion->http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/programmes/thepassion/], which starts, I think, on Sunday on BBC1. It’s developed with the help of Mark Goodacre, one of the most prominent Bible Scholars who runs the [excellent NT Gateway site->http://ntgateway.com/]. It looks really interesting, and the [BBC website->http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/programmes/thepassion/] is excellent. (I loved Frank Deasy’s line about the working class Jesus: “The line I was itching to write was ‘Jesus lights a fag’.”)

However, is it me, or are Jesus and all the disciples white?
