Netflix’s Messiah poses a difficult question to viewers — are all miracles real or can they be fabricated?

The show investigates this through the lens of CIA officer Eva Geller (Michelle Monaghan), who digs into a man named al-Masih (Mehdi Dehbi) who’s been gaining international attention through publicized disruption. His actions beg the audience and Eva to question if he’s actually performing miracles or just pulling one over on everyone.
