JESUSLAND: PLOT OUTLINE (TENTATIVE)

By Christopher Zoukis

Opening Image:  Jesus is introduced.  He’s back because he decides to take another vacation. 

Theme Stated:  Satan’s constant opposition to everything Jesus does is introduced on page 3.

Set-Up:  Jesus and Heather eat at the Flying J, where Jesus’ disenchantment with religion is exposed.

Catalyst:  Arriving in Butte, Montana, Jesus delivers the garlic he is hauling in his Peterbilt to a grocery store owned and operated by a religious group known as Springers (followers of the deceased Curtis Howe Springer of Zyzzx fame).  Springers are Merovingians.  Heather is a Springer.   Image courtesy en.wikipedia.org

Debate:  The Springers identify Jesus as a preacher just waiting to happen.  The Springers attempt to persuade Jesus to become a radio/TV evangelist for Springerism. 

Break in Two:  Jesus does not want to get “involved in the preaching thing again.”  But he does.  The Springer Church becomes The Last Chance Church of the Last Days.

B Story:  the relationship between Jesus and Heather takes off. 

Fun and Games:  Jesus/Henry becomes superstar TV evangelist.  The Last Chance Church goes international, surpassing every other religion in adherents.

Midpoint:  Satan is pissed.  He believes Jesus/Henry is trying to pull a fast one:  a premature Second Advent, along with the Millennium, where Jesus gets to rule the world.  Satan marshals an opposition religion.
