“Easter is when we celebrate Jesus coming back. We just never expected to take it so literally, or for it to be a matter that was most definitely NOT a cause for celebration. When he came back this time the dead came to life with him, rapidly overtaking Jerusalem and spreading out in all directions. Apparently his old man has decided its time for humanity to come to an end and this tide of the dead is his way of wiping the planet clean again. Well, fuck that. Let’s get this sandal-wearing carpenter back in his tomb, where he belongs.”
Jesus has returned to Earth, as a flesh-eating monster, head of an army of the resurrected who are spreading out from the Middle East and overrunning the earth.
The terrible thing is that all these dead souls who have risen again retain their intelligence and ability to communicate, just not control over their bodies. They know what they’re doing and they hate it… these tormented. What’s even more disturbing is that nobody appears to have been raptured and nobody is being spared. Everyone is falling beneath the teeth and nails of the dead and swelling their ranks with every casualty.
In order to stem the tide of death and save the world, the secret occult intelligence services of the Earth have cobbled together a squad of Jews, Pagans, Atheists and Satanists who have been assigned to hook up with a Mossad operations team in what remains of the necropolis of Jerusalem, to track down the resurrected Jesus and destroy him, saving the world.
The zombies use the normal average zombie states. While the minds and vocal chords are still intelligent and despairing, the bodies are primitive and incapable of using high tech weaponry. However, unlike normal zombies, these zombies can keep coming despite being shot in the brain or cut into pieces. If anything is severed it keeps coming as a ‘Body Part’ (which is available as a Freakshow)
He hasn’t come spreading peace this time, he’s come bearing a sword. Jesus is immune to all weapons except those made of wood or metal piercing weapons such as spears, nails or arrows. He can be repulsed by a cross if he fails a Willpower roll – unpleasant memories. Jesus can walk on liquids and transmute one liquid into another liquid. If he takes a whole turn to act he can completely reconstitute and heal an undead nearby. He can only be destroyed by being physically annihilated.

As for the non-Christian commando team, I would suggest getting inspiration from Clive Barker’s Jericho.
