Basically what the movie illustrates, is the last few days of Jesus' life, from his arrival in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, to the planning of Judas' betrayal, to the feast meal of the passover, praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the handing over of Jesus on Holy Thursday, to the whole Pilate, and the fourteen steps of the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday.
The movie is masterfully made, in many ways. First off, using no English, instead, the words of the Bible, in the original languages of the area, such as Hebrew and Latin. They highlight all of the main points of Holy Week, and they do it so well. I will try to link a few clips down below, to show you how powerful of a movie this is.
The movie is powerful, especially from the middle of the movie on, from the flogging of Jesus at the pillar, to his Passion and crucifixion. The movie doesn't really touch on Holy Saturday or Easter Sunday, but that is alright. This is called the Passion of the Christ, so it should only cover up to and including Good Friday.
I hope that you all get to see the movie, and that you all enjoy it!
Have you ever seen the Passion of the Christ? Would you ever see it? If you have seen it, has it strengthened your faith, kept it the same, or weakened it?
