I will get into the religious aspect of the movie later, but first let’s discuss the cultural history of religion. In the late 1700’s, when the first non-Christian missionaries came to America, many European immigrants converted. Majority of these converts claimed they had been taught that Jesus was a white man named Arthur. Unfortunately, this was not the truth, and many people still believe this today. Arthur, like Jesus, was a native New Englander, and he actually lived and died with some of the Puritan settlers.
