Jesus Christ is a character who is part of the EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf story series.
He is the Biblical Son of God and the Savior of mankind who is the main focus of Tapper Smurf's faith and mostly appears in the story "The Passion Of The Smurfs". In the story, one of His apostles, Judas Iscariot, is recognized by the Smurfs as being a related ancestor of the human wizard Gargamel. His main adversary is Lucifer, who has caused mankind to sin and who appears as an angel of light to deceive people.
Although Scripture declares Him to be King Of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus' appearance in the story series is more that of a humble servant, with His kingship to take place around the time of His second coming. Tapper and five of his fellow Smurfs have personally interacted with Jesus since His resurrection.
It is assumed that He appeared in the form of "the Beloved" that Smurfette's heart was drawn to in the Song Of Solomon setting that Tapper Smurf created for her and Empath to explore and participate in in the story "The Smurf Of Solomon".
The Jesus Christ depicted in this story series is generally very friendly, but speaks and acts with a controlled fury toward those who would abuse the religion He upholds. He isn't afraid to be candid and honest with the people that He talks to, often being an encourager to those who needed to be lifted up from their situation. The Smurfs that followed Him through the last hours leading to His crucifixion notice that He is strangely calm and hardly reacts even when taking physical abuse from the Roman soldiers, with only that moment when He cried "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" ("My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?") being when He found Himself separated from His Father in heaven, the total expression of the anguish He was suffering.
The desired voice actor for this character would be Liam Neeson, who voiced the character of Aslan in Walden Media's The Chronicles Of Narnia films. An alternate suitable actor would be Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in The Passion Of The Christ and voiced the same character in The Word Of Promise Audio Bible Presentation.
- His current depiction is based on that from Hanna-Barbera's Bible Adventures.
