“I Am Jesus Christ,” a Ridiculous New Video Game | The Daily Show


Have you heard the good news
about Jesus? Yeah? Now, have you heard
the bad news about Jesus? NEWSWOMAN: This might
actually be the Holy Grail of new video games. It’s called I Am Jesus Christ, and it lets gamers play Jesus– to heal a blind man,
make fish appear in a bucket, and end a thunderstorm. The New Testament-inspired game
has not been released yet, but it is expected
to launch soon. (groaning, jeering) Okay, this… this is extremely offensive. Especially for me–
someone who has already accepted Super Mario as my video game
savior. I mean… And I say unto you, it’s-a me! -(laughter)
-Look, I’ll-I’ll be honest, I don’t want to play
a video game about Jesus. However, I do want to play
as Jesus in other video games. Think about it. Yeah. When Jesus was alive, he rolled
with sinners and prostitutes, so he’d kick ass
in Grand Theft Auto. He’d be amazing.
Or even better, I’d want Jesus to be in Madden
as a quarterback. Be like,
“What’s the play, Jesus?” “Hail Mary, same as every play.” (laughter) -(applause)
-Or… -(whooping, cheering)
-or… I’d want to play Jesus
in Mortal Kombat. Yeah, just ripping out
dudes’ spines, then immediately healing them. (deep voice):
Ressurrect him! So look, I don’t know
about this video game, but if you are gonna play it
and you do get stuck, at least we all know
the cheat code– it’s gonna be up-down-up-down-
left-right-A-B-stop.

  1. I cant believe this make believe- make believe Jesus game got this much news coverage. The game is like most hollywood movies the only good parts are in the trailer. I bet the rest of it is bible studies.#notevenarealgame

  2. There was a game like Madden with J.C. – it was Madden 2000, the first one that had the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning @ QB, Edgerrin James @ RB & Marvin Harrison @ WR… if you knew how to run the offense, Manning was basically a god!

  3. TBH nowadays this is one of the only ways to get younger ppl to learn about Jesus. So if anything, Christians should be happy. Because their religion is dying out.

  4. I think it about time the Christian stop rejecting gamers and return with a good game about a powerful healer, the story of healing any illness and making food from nothing turn water into wine walking on water.

    I don't think you need to even be Christian to enjoy such gameplay and it will show a side of Christian that being lost in translation due to Trump fake worship of god.

  5. Just another way for the zealots to try and indicate the people with some bullshit about a guy who lives in the sky and tells you that you are going to a place in the state of michigan if you do nor believe in him. Yet because it has " The savior of mankind " the zealots are going to be all for it because it " teaches some kind of moral value ". Don't even waste your money on this crock of shit because it's bullshit mindless indoctrination to bring your childern to the LARGEST GROUP OF PAEDOPHILES ON THE PLANET.

  6. Blasphemy. Blasphemy. There nothing funny about this. Thank you Lord for telling us what the signs will be to signify that you are coming back. Thank you Lord.

  7. noone: offended by this
    everyone: celebrates birthday of this character
    now wait a minute
    its so postpostironic sometimes i just want to act like a proper catholic when in company of other human beings just for Lucifer to laugh with me
    'cause i dont know who else would get it

  8. The UN Global Summit on Climate Change…Everyone talked, but no action was taken to address the problem. 10 years is all we've got to fix this disaster and greatly reduce our carbon emissions by an unfathomable amount before the damage becomes irreversible…It's not going to get done, and then it really doesn't matter who believes what…To quote Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The BBC TV series: "It doesn't matter a pair of fetid dingo's kidneys what you do from now on, burn down the forest, anything…Two million years you've got and that's it. At the end of that time, your race will be gone, poof, and good riddance." A whole lot of people in a Jesus-hazed rage or fear, who usually turn to worship due to some trauma that occurred in their lives, won't help swing the climate back into balance, and I'm not going to argue with people who believe in any of the Bronze Age Mythologies, including Christianity. This sickly fervor and fanaticism and the desire to commit murder in the name of some magic man who could walk about on water or some great big guy on a throne in the clouds doesn't concern me, but the future of our planet does, but unfortunately there are way too many people who believe Climate Change is all some whimsical hoax concocted by someone for who knows what reason. Oh, well, most likely there's nothing we can do about it anymore, and it doesn't do to succumb to negative emotions and thus do something you might regret later in a fit of anger, pain, or fear. Just live your life as happily, decently, and as humanely as you can: remember, you've only got one. Maybe something happens after death, maybe not, but regardless of that, I believe the best course is to simply maintain civility and tolerance for all while alive. Everything in moderation, never binging on any ideas, regardless of how magical you personally think they are.

  9. Jesus in GTA style already exist, it's Called Passion of the Christ 2. It was a spoof by G4 tv's show X-Play, I really miss that show.

  10. The RFID chip is the Mark of the Beast 666 Got it? Take it out!!!! REPENT accept Jesus get baptized calling the n the name of the Lord Acts 22:16

  11. This has MURICA written all over it. Imagine when they crucify you at the end of the game, there is no part 2. They'll have to make I Am Satan… Good way to end your career. 😁

  12. If you get killed by a sword or a spear, it could be right away, if you get crucified in the game, then you have to wait 3 days to play again.

  13. I feel like a video game about Satan would be way more interesting.

    if you're going to make something based off that goofy ass book called The Bible you might as well make it interesting right?

  14. Dear trevor noah,
    Hopefully you are well. Do you love Jesus,dear? If yes,then read please what I say. You'll be amazed,because Jesus is also mentioned in the Holy-Quran by 25 times. The more surprising thing is that, The nineteenth chapter of holy Quran is named after Mary (mother of Jesus).She is one of the most important and righteous women in Islam.

    #(Surah Maryam "Mary",chapter:19 Holy Quran . recitation: https://youtu.be/IJfj1fQyfGM )

    19:1
    Kaf, Ha, Ya, 'Ayn, Sad.
    19:2
    [This is] a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah
    19:3
    When he called to his Lord a private supplication.
    19:4
    He said, "My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy.
    19:5
    And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir
    19:6
    Who will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You]."
    19:7
    [He was told], "O Zechariah, indeed We give you good tidings of a boy whose name will be John. We have not assigned to any before [this] name."
    19:8
    He said, "My Lord, how will I have a boy when my wife has been barren and I have reached extreme old age?"
    19:9
    [An angel] said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, for I created you before, while you were nothing.' "
    19:10
    [Zechariah] said, "My Lord, make for me a sign." He said, "Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights, [being] sound."
    19:11
    So he came out to his people from the prayer chamber and signaled to them to exalt [ Allah ] in the morning and afternoon.
    19:12
    [ Allah ] said, "O John, take the Scripture with determination." And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy
    19:13
    And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah
    19:14
    And dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant.
    19:15
    And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.
    19:16
    And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east.
    19:17
    And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man.
    19:18
    She said, "Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah ."
    19:19
    He said, "I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy."
    19:20
    She said, "How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?"
    19:21
    He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.' "
    19:22
    So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place.
    19:23
    And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, "Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten."
    19:24
    But he called her from below her, "Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream.
    19:25
    And shake toward you the trunk of the palm tree; it will drop upon you ripe, fresh dates.
    19:26
    So eat and drink and be contented. And if you see from among humanity anyone, say, 'Indeed, I have vowed to the Most Merciful abstention, so I will not speak today to [any] man.' "
    19:27
    Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, "O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented.
    19:28
    O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste."
    19:29
    So she pointed to him. They said, "How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?"
    19:30
    [Jesus] said, "Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet.
    19:31
    And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah as long as I remain alive
    19:32
    And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant.
    19:33
    And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive."
    19:34
    That is Jesus, the son of Mary – the word of truth about which they are in dispute.
    19:35
    It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.
    19:36
    [Jesus said], "And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path."
    19:37
    Then the factions differed [concerning Jesus] from among them, so woe to those who disbelieved – from the scene of a tremendous Day.
    19:38
    How [clearly] they will hear and see the Day they come to Us, but the wrongdoers today are in clear error.

  15. You are an amazing comedian. However, everything has limits. It is very ofensive your comments. In fact, it is stupid your comments about Mario Bros & Jesus.

    You are very that this. It ia very disappointment.

  16. A little harsh don't you think? When I was in high school, me and some other friends did something of the sorts in RPG Maker, it was a fun experience… I know it's easy to make fun of people, but laughing at their beliefs is just plain wrong

  17. There's so much content in the New Testament alone they could've used for inspiration, and they give us this 🙁

    There could've easily been scenes where you as the player have to keep your eyes on the demons affecting the pharisees (it is VR, after all), quick time events when being tempted, and heart to heart moments with your disciples (and there were more than 12, according to the Bible–though most of them left him).

    So disappointed >:|

  18. This has the most hilarious comment section that I think I've ever read in my life. As much as I want to move off this planet forever now (if Jesus the game is really a thing) I'll stay because the people in the comments are still more real than Christ.

  19. Isn't that the cheat code to Contra on Nintendo? LMAO. Trevor you went wayyy back in the day on that one, only gamers know that one

  20. All these before the destruction of this world. Jesus Christ is coming! I belive in my heart and I'm a terrible sinner! I do not expect to be in heaven but I know he will end this $#it hole that is controlled by the crooked once and for all eventually. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Lasts forever.

  21. Question can I be Jesus but use my powers to be a complete asshole?
    Turn a man's water into piss
    Bring back the dead but only to put on puppet shows.

  22. A game to live the life of Christ is awesome. It is not disrespectful, and it is not to make money out of religion. It is amazing way to express the story of the Christ and of the New Testament in a more modern way to get people thinking.
