Liberating Jesus began as a play, became a movie and is now a book.
Available on Amazon:
Liberating Jesus, the movie:
The words of Jesus can be viewed from an enlightened perspective that is particularly relevant to those seeking to awaken to a higher level of consciousness.
This film portrays Jesus as a teacher of Awakening and a Revealer of The Way.
The message of this film is inspiring, enlightening, and liberating and will support you in your own awakening. It is not about bringing you to Jesus, or to any religion. It is about you, coming home to the truth of who you are.
Liberating Jesus is a film of the remarkable one-man play, written and performed by Leonard Jacobson. Leonard plays the role of Jesus returned.
The time is now... Jesus has returned after a long and difficult journey since his death upon the cross. He has much to share with us about his life and death, and how his teaching has been misunderstood and misused.
The returned Jesus shows us a way out of separation and conflict and reveals the Oneness at the very heart of all paths and traditions.
This film will either inspire, enlighten, and delight you, or it will disturb you. It is very powerful.
If you are a Christian who adheres rigidly to traditional Christian beliefs, you probably should NOT view this movie.
In ACT 1, he speaks of his experience with John the Baptist, his opening into Oneness with God, his encounter with Satan, and his early experiences as a teacher of the Way. But then, the mood changes as he leads us through his experience of the crucifixion and shares with us what really happened to him on the cross. These revelations are both startling, and enlightening. He then reveals what has happened since his death upon the cross, and what he has had to endure to return to us.
In ACT 2, he reveals how his teachings have been misunderstood and misused, and he masterfully updates and clarifies his teaching. Sometimes forceful and direct, sometimes loving, and compassionate, Jesus is concerned about the current state of the world, and how the misuse of his teachings has contributed to human unconsciousness. He is insistent that Christians awaken to his true teaching, and that Jews fulfill their sacred covenant with God. What he shares offers guidance to Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and anyone else interested in true awakening. Even atheists and agnostics will find it meaningful.
In 1981, Leonard experienced the first of a series of profound, spontaneous spiritual awakenings, in which he received a series of startling revelations about Jesus.
Although these revelations affirmed the divinity of Jesus at the deepest level, nevertheless, there were some astounding departures from traditional Christian beliefs. Feeling overwhelmed by what was revealed, Leonard chose not to speak of this for many years, until in 2008 he wrote the play, Liberating Jesus and performed this live in Los Angeles and Santa Cruz, California.
