I have. It's a powerful Movie, We showed it here last night at the park, And 10 to 15 people prayed for salvation Smile This movie make me cry though.

But It makes me sad to see how much pain Jesus went through just for us, That is a true Sacrifice. & I am very grateful for all he had done for me Smile

I never have, although I hope to sometime. I'm sure I'm going to cry during it, but I'm afraid of watching it before I'm ready.

I'm hoping to get to see it soon, but I've not yet. We may go to the live Passion play here, though. =)

Why don't they like it? It's about Jesus and what he did for us?

I am not sure comepletely about what they don't like but I think it has something to do with the changes they made from the Bible.

I've been wondering how it would compare with the actual Bible passages. I'm not always a big fan of the acted out Bible stories, so I'm wondering if I'd really appreciate and benefit from watching it.

Wow, Arkan. I just saw this for the first time a few days ago. It was a very powerful movie.

Conquestor, do you know of any specific differences between the movie and Scripture? There were a couple of things I spotted.

I'm not allowed to

1: It's rated R
2: My dad says it's from a Roman Catholic point of view at that it has some bad theology

Questions and Answers: The Passion of the Christ--Biblically Accurate?

by  Dave Miller, Ph.D.

Q.

Is the Mel Gibson movie, The Passion of the Christ, biblically accurate?

A.

Hollywood rarely, if ever, represents the Bible accurately when it ventures into the arena of biblical history. Its depictions of Bible events usually are adjusted and supplemented with extrabiblical details. Nevertheless, Mel Gibson’s blockbuster recreation of the final hours of Jesus’ life on Earth depicts the major events quite credibly. The movie is particularly accurate in its cinematic portrayal of the attitude and actions of Pilate, the Jewish hierarchy, and the Jewish mob. Both the scourging scene and the actual crucifixion match substantially the extant historical reports of these Roman forms of punishment and execution—with perhaps one exception, i.e., the placement of the nails in Jesus’ hands (cf. Harrub and Thompson, 2002).

However, the movie does contain several nonbiblical allusions. For example, a single squadron of Jewish guards arrests Jesus in the garden, whereas the gospel accounts include a large angry mob with the Jewish officers (Matthew 26:47; Mark 14:43; Luke 22:47). After His arrest, Jesus is shoved off a bridge to dangle from a chain. As He is hoisted upward, He sees one of the disciples (Judas) hiding beneath the bridge. Mary Magdalene is linked with the adulterous woman of John 8. After Christ’s scourging, women sop up Jesus’ blood with towels provided by Pilate’s wife. Mary, experiencing a flashback to Christ’s childhood, comforts Jesus as He transports the cross to Golgotha. Simon of Cyrene, the man chosen by the Romans to assist Jesus with the cross, is given considerable dialogue. Mary is given an exaggerated role, and frequently is addressed as “mother,” in keeping with Catholic tradition (Gibson is Catholic). A raven pecks the eye of one of the thieves hanging beside Jesus. Yet the Bible says nothing of these details. Perhaps a more serious deviation is Satan’s attempt to discourage Jesus from subjecting Himself to the ordeal. In contrast, the New Testament depicts Satan as a central instigator of the event, apparently unaware of the ultimate spiritual and eternal implications for atonement (Genesis 3:15; Hebrews 2:14; Revelation 12:1-5).

Despite such alterations to the biblical record, Gibson is to be commended for achieving his primary purpose: to give the viewer a deeper awareness of the suffering of Christ.

I just found this. I generally agree with everything said. I did not see any major deviations from Scripture, with the portrayal of Satan being the biggest potential issue. The movie did elaborate on certain things, and did make links and connections not found in the Bible.

I don't know much about the movie world, so I couldn't confirm or disprove that. It is a very violent movie, because Christ died a very violent death.

I've never seen it, but I've heard of it. Is it really rated "R", and if so, why?

The reason the movie is rated R is because of blood and violence. To accurately show how the Romans beat their victums, they had to show a great deal of blood. The Romans didn't just give Jesus a few scratches on his back; they beat him until he was a piece of raw meat.

That's what I would say too. The movie is supposed to be very historically and (mainly, depending on your beliefs) biblically accurate. In my opinion, the movie did not add excess violence or imagery only for the sake of violence, but in an attempt to portray Christ's crucifixion as accurately as they could. I greatly appreciate this, especially when it seems many movies are spoiled by unnecessary content. However, the movie begins in the garden, and ends with five seconds showing Christ's resurrection. Nearly the entire movie was spent in the trial, punishment, and execution of Jesus, thus nearly the entire movie was portraying violence of some sort against him.

If it had been entirely me, I would have waited longer to see this movie, but my parents suggested it, and in retrospect I am glad I watched it, though it was very difficult to watch. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they were of an older age or their parents wanted them to see it.
