Watch: Joaquin Phoenix’s Jesus says women should obey God rather than men in a clip from Mary Magdalene

Watch: Joaquin Phoenix’s Jesus says women should obey God rather than men in a clip from Mary Magdalene April 9, 2019

There’s a famous bit in the book of Acts where Peter says, “We must obey God rather than men.” A new clip from Mary Magdalene — starring Rooney Mara as the title character and Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus — puts a new spin on that saying (intentionally or otherwise), as Jesus teaches a group of women that they must be prepared to defy their fathers and husbands if and when those men tell them to disobey God.

You can watch the clip here, via USA Today:


Mary Magdalene comes to American and Canadian theatres April 12.
