Messiah, was a show starring Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, The Path) as Eva Geller. She was a CIA officer who was investigating a mysterious “miracle man” who has been developing a cult-like following across the world. She didn’t understand that as the prophet was drawing large crowds of faithful disciples, by saying that he is merely doing “God’s work”… was he a scamming people with fake miracles?
