The History Channel, home to the epic "The Bible" miniseries, is reportedly set to begin working on a new series about Jesus' childhood and the years not covered in the Bible. "The Lost Years" seeks to cover Jesus' life from the age of 13 until his ministry at age 30 and may seek to portray him as an exorcist, given the producer and writers' histories in the horror genre and the stories of exorcism taken from the Bible.
Scott Kosar is the feature writer working with producers Eli Roth and Eric Newman, according to Deadline.com. The three men are known for their work in the horror genre, with credits including "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "The Last Exorcism," and "The Amityville Horror."
The Bible itself is full of stories of Jesus healing the sick and even bringing people back to life. In the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, there are seven instances of Jesus exorcising demons from people. The first is the exorcism at a synagogue in Capernaum, where Jesus exorcised a demon that yelled, "I know who you are!" more >>
