Vintage 21 is the name of a church in Raliegh, NC. At one point, this church redubbed audio over parts of old 'Jesus' movies.

In the Spring of 2003, Vintage21 had a four week series on Jesus Christ, taking a deep look at what He said and did. It was difficult at times to get past our preconceived notions that had been developed by staunch, starched Sunday School classes of old. This is a satirical look at what some people think Jesus is like. Thank goodness He's not.

these videos instantly became internet sensations.

Thank goodness Jesus is anything but the stereotypes we may have of him.
He is the real thing.
We need not make him a pushover or blond haired and blue eyed or American even.
Jesus was the Word in flesh. and he moved into the neighborhood, lived among us and showed us the Way. all we need is found in Him. but we need not change him to fit our needs... it is us that needs changed... or perhaps we'll become the stereotype...
