The Passion of the Christ



“The Passion of the Christ” is a 2004 American tragic film directed by Mel Gibson. The film starts with Christ’s prayers in the Garden of Gethsemane and His betrayal by Judas Iscariot. It follows the trial and torture Christ endured under Pontius Pilate and King Herod. Once Pilate pronounced Christ’s death sentence, He carried a heavy wooden cross to Calvary amid a crowd of jeering citizens and horrendous beatings. He was crucified, died, and Satan screamed in defeat. Jesus was taken down from the cross and buried. He raised from the dead and exited the tomb.


When Christ expired on the cross, some events attested “He was the Son of God!”

“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, ‘Surely he was the Son of God!'”  (Mt 27:50-54)

I have watched the original movie in three sessions because of extreme injustice and cruelty.  “Christ suffered so much for me so that I might enter into Heaven, and I have no hope to get there unless I confess my sin to the authorities and serve time for the murder,” reasoned a murderer . . . and followed his reasoning.
