What's clear is that the Old Testament God was wrathful and vindictive, while the one Jesus tells us about in the New Testament is more like a loving father figure.
The most fascinating interpretation of that is that God never fully understood his own creations until he actually became human and underwent the whole cycle of birth, life and death (and a very painful death at that). Ever since then, he has never bothered us humans again.

But the real life answer is that Jesus and his followers simply had a different understanding of their frumpy religion that had always been based on aggression and fear.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
