Over the last 50 years of Morgan Freeman’s career we’ve watched him play so many roles and several of them have been of him portraying God. According to The Christian Post in the third season of National Geographic’s “The Story of God with Morgan Freeman” the actor will take us on a journey where he shows evidence of Christians recognizing Jesus as God.
Freemen said, “Jesus is not the only example of human incarnation of God. The Egyptian pharaohs, the emperors of the Inca were all considered divine. Makes you wonder, why do people want to see God walk among us?”
During the show he shares how different faiths see God taking human form. This particular episode begins with Freeman visiting Bethlehem at the Church of the Nativity.
It’s there Franciscan priest takes the actor to the place where Roman emperor Constantine’s mother, Helena, believed Jesus was born.
