The trailer has received negative receptions on Twitter although the show presents the plot as a mystery, its direct references to Quranic stories allowed Muslim users to trivially predict the plot of the show. One user, @Sultaan_Mo1, claimed to have been blocked by both of the official Twitter accounts of Messiah and Netflix for spoiling the twist ending where the character that the official trailer attempts to portray as and suggest is Jesus is actually the anti-Christ trying to trick people into following the devil. This was predicted due to Netflix naming the character being played by Mehdi Dehbi “Al Massih ad-Dajjal” which translates to the “Antichrist” or “false messiah” in Arabic.
