Jesus and Magdalene by João Cerqueira

Jesus and Magdalene published by Line by Lion Publications in 2016

SYNOPSIS:

Jesus returns to earth.

After meeting activist Magdalene who is fighting for a better world, he becomes embroiled in three problematic situations.

He meets an extremist ecological group, which is plotting to destroy a maize plantation it believes to be genetically modified. Then, he observes the rise up against a tourist development that is to be built in a forest reserve. Finally, he witnesses an armed conflict between blacks and gypsies.

Along this journey, he meets a series of characters: the ecologists already mentioned, a priest who forces him to take confession, a corrupt local politician, unscrupulous contractors, a police commander forced to play Pilate, the inhabitants of run-down neighbourhood, a wizard who solves all the problems, and a black boy and a gypsy girl in love (Romy and Julian).

However, although he limits himself to accompanying Magdalene attempting only to pacify those on bad terms, even then Jesus is unable to escape the fury of mankind.

And only the con man – Professor Kacimba – will recognise him.

Using irony and sarcasm, TheSecond Coming of Jesus to Earth broaches recent phenomena of social and political conflict.
