This film should be renamed 'The torture of Christ'   Friday, March 26, 2004 (11:36 p.m.) 

Boy this film surely is gruesome!

i dont have any complaints, the guy who played jesus did some ingenius acting, he was jesus!

30 minutes into the film, you see a brutal torture that lasts pretty much all throughout the film, man this should be called 'the torture of christ'

i think it should've included more of jesus's life and his miracles, and not be a blood bath all the way through.

contradicting the offical version of history, i dont think jesus was ever crucified, but thats my opinion. and he definately wasnt a son of god, he was a prophet and a messenger. were all sons of god, when u think about it.

besides everything, good soundtrack..great dialogues and a good film!

Thank you

Acehit.

I agree with you it is gruesome...

but mel wanted to show people that when he was killed, it wasnt such peaches and cream as 'the greatest story ever told' that was such B.S.

honestly, peter o'toole and the over acting they put into that film.

besides, before this film, i thought jesus just got a thorn crown, a few whips, and some nails.

this maybe over the edge, but it pushes the point...he endured alot!

but the fact he gave the story in so much viewpoints, makes it a different film to watch, each time and again...

u have Jesus point
his disciples
his mother, the most heart-breaking point of view
the devil (consider this one...)
mary mag
the priests
pontius

its intresting, to watch the film and focus on all of them you can get all jumbled up, but watch it and solely put your self in mary's position...

for a mother, to endure that, imagine your child going thru that.

aside from religion it is a deep film about humanity and the crap that went on back then and is still goin on.

You just donīt understand it do you?...The movie is a masterpiece   Saturday, March 27, 2004 (1:06 p.m.) 

The torture is important to understand how great was His sacrifice for us.
You call it torture....i call it love, for all the tears that i drop for Him, and for all the blood He drop for us.

I have to agree with you about "The Greatest Story...". I thought it was SSSOOOO dated and so cheesey. When I saw "Passion", not only was I moved, but I was relieved to this story finally told in a way that is not candy-coated, but is both realistic and gritty, while keeping to that underlying meaning. Let's face it!!! Being whipped, hung on a cross and then stabbed could not have been pretty!

The film is called "The Passion of the Christ", and "Passion" comes from the Greek "Pathos", which means "Suffering". So Passion means that Jesus Suffered, hence the meaning of the film.

Historical records, such as those from Josephus, a 1st century Jewish historian wrote that Jesus was indeed crucified, and its a fact that most scholars do not argue with.

As for Jesus being the Son of God, everyone is allowed to their opinion...I believe he is and he came from Heaven to die for our sins. God once told Abraham to sacrifice his son for God as a show of loyalty to God...Abraham was about to do it when God stopped him. But the Lord God sacrificed his son for us, and for that I am eternally grateful.

As for the film not containing his life, I think we have had enough films that span his whole life in 2 hours. These types of movies do not reach the CORE of the message of Christ, they are simply condensed versions of the Gospels with little emotion. They are great films, but they are not personal...the "Passion" is personal, which makes it better.

You can't call Jesus a prophet and refute his claims of divinity. If he was prophet enough to say the truth, then when he claimed to be the Messiah, he was still speaking the truth. If he never spoke the truth, then he was neither Messiah nor prophet. In either event, he can either be a prophet and a Messiah or neither. But you can't have it both ways.

The word "Passion" refers to the time from Jesus' prayer and betrayal at Gethsemane to his death on the cross. It is a specific part of the bible (or rather 4) as each gospel gives an account of the "passion." This sequence of events has been interpreted many times before this film: Bach's John, Luke, and Matthew Passions, Arvo Paert's "Passio" (based on the John passion) and countless others. Its not a random title, you friggin idiot. as for the comments you make about him not being crucified...its not even worth debating with someone who is obviously an idiot. I don't force others to follow my religious beliefs, but at least don't make up stupid reasons for the invalidity of something when you don't even understand the bible enough to know what the "Passion of Christ" is.
