    I would mention the lack of personal history of Christ. We can make guesses, but there is nothing in the gospels that says "Jesus was doing this during his awkward teenage years". He may have trained in Joseph's trade, carpentry, or he may have traveled the land to learn more about the world. I would mention how Christ is usually portrayed as mild-mannered in movies, because there is typically a distinct lack of Christ being portrayed as a well-rounded individual with emotional variances. That should be a good start..
