The Passion of the Christ Full Movie

I (Sal) just saw the movie "Passion for Christ" last night (March of 2004) with my local church's homegroup Bible Study. There is so much to reflect on that I decided to make another page on this. Yes, I humbly admit that I got tearied...ok..a little more than just tearied, which I can't remember I've done this last in a movie theatre since "Titanic" (see love story). My eyes were less teary in Titanic not just because of the sad story, but my compassion was for more of the dead that didn't know Jesus before they died

Below are some topics that stood out for me personally, which I would like to share with you chronological order as much as possible from scene to scene as you might have similar thoughts on these too:


Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus (Luke 22:1-6)
" 1Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, 2and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. 3Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. 4And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. 5They were delighted and agreed to give him money. 6He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present."

Jesus Arrested
" 47While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, 48but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?" 50And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? 53Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour—when darkness reigns."

Garden of Gethsemane

"Jesus Prays in Gethsemane 36 Then Jesus brought them to an olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, "Sit here while I go on ahead to pray." 37 He took Peter and Zebedee's two sons, James and John, and he began to be filled with anguish and deep distress. 38 He told them, "My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and watch with me...."-Matthew 26:36-56

Israel - Garden of Gethsemane

"See the actual ground where Jesus agonized before his crucifixion and prayed that the cup may p%#, not his will but may God's will be done."

  • Where was the Garden adjacent to the city of Jerusalem? It was located east beyond the walls (see Jerusalem in Roman Times, from templemount (other awesome pictures/maps).
  • Healing of Roman Soldiers’ ear
  • Stomping on the snake
    -Luke 10:18 "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven, I have given you authority to trample on snakes…and to overcome all the power of the enemy”

    Flashbacks of Jesus

    Throughout the movie, Jesus would have flashbacks from his past (growing up as a kid to his teachings as an adult) during his moments of being scourage/torchered. Before we look into his past, I wanted to give you some historical lessons to better understand the Roman control and development of the Jewish Sects (down below) at that time:

  • The 400 Years Between the Old and New Testament, from Ray C. Stedman
  • Jewish Sects

    Did you know the Jewish people were divided in sects as we have denominations now in Christianity? Let's take a look at them as I want readers to not group or stereotype the Jews of the Biblical times:

  • "Institutions That Came Into Being During The Four Hundred Years", from Bibleteacher
  • Jewish Sects, Yoseif Yaron from what you need to know about
  • Dreams

    Do you remember the scene where Claudia Procles ( Pilate-Roman Leader's-that had all those decisions to make"-wife) had some disturbing dream...

    "When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him."-Matthew 27:19

    My eyes were less teary in Titanic not just because of the sad story, but my compassion was for more of the dead that didn't know Jesus before they died. After seeing "The Passion", it kind of makes Christians more challenged to share about this "Good News"-what about it? Let's go! Oh wait, first let's get right with God and ask Him to show us a list of names of people you've hurt or been hurt by to ask forgivness. I'm already doing this and I feel like some weights have been lifted off my shoulder. God has been revealing people through dreams I've been having and many from the past, what about you?

    "Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.""-Luke 22:34

    *see "The Church is a bunch of hypocrites¦ why are so many Christians so hypocritical?"

    Peter Disowns Jesus (Luke 22:54-62)
    " 54Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. 55But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. 56A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him."
    57But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
    58A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
    59About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
    60Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times." 62And he went outside and wept bitterly."

    Judas Hangs Himself (Matthew 27:1-10)
    " 1Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death. 2They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor.
    3When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. 4"I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." "What is that to us?" they replied. "That's your responsibility."
    5So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
    6The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money." 7So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. 8That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 9Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, 10and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me."[a]

    Jesus Before Pilate (Matthew 27:11-26)

    " 11Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
    12When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. 13Then Pilate asked him, "Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?" 14But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge—to the great amazement of the governor.
    15Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. 16At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas. 17So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, "Which one do you want me to release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?" 18For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him.
    19While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his wife sent him this message: "Don't have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him."
    20But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed.
    21"Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" asked the governor. "Barabbas," they answered.
    22"What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. They all answered, "Crucify him!"
    23"Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
    24When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!"
    25All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!"
    26Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified..."

    "Mark 15:15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified."

    Beating, Scouraging, etc.. of Jesus

  • Is Gibson's Beating of Jesus Accurate?", Posted by at February 11, 2004 09:56 PM from

  • "Most evangelical preachers have told this story with the impression that Jesus was flogged with a "Cat 'O Nine Tails" whip that included bone and metal ends on several strands of leather. Such a whip would, according to the story tellers, remove most of the skin it lashed. This may have been popularized among Christians because of the Shroud of Turin, as the wounds on that "body" or image are supposed to bear evidence of that particular kind of whip. This has produced more than one gory "hamburger Jesus" sermon, and the idea that Jesus was whipped until most of the flesh was removed from his body and was flailed until he is hardly recognizable as a man.
    It's quite effective, but I have a question. Aside from the fact that we don't really know what kind of whip was used and even how many lashes were actually given, how do we fit in this verse?

    2 Cor 11:24 Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one.

    This is the Apostle Paul, and I have to wonder, if he is talking about a similar kind of lashing, how could it possibly be the kind of lashing that will be portrayed in Gibson's movie? No one could reasonably survive that once, much less five times. Since Paul does say it is at the hands of the Jews, we might say it is a different, less brutal beating, but he is clear that it is 39 lashes. From all the evidence we have, the beatings are probably similar.
    This makes it much more reasonable to me to assume that Jesus was whipped with a more traditional whip and, while obviously brutal and painful, it did not produce all the damage that we hear about in the popular stories or in the movie. Interestingly, the Shroud of Turin does not show evidence of the kind of extensive damage by scourging Gibson will portray, but of something more in line with what I am suggesting. Terrible, but survivable. (I don't believe the shroud is genuine, btw, but I do believe a real body was flogged to create it.)"

  • The Physical Death of Jesus Christ, by Mayo Clinic

  • "Scourging of Jesus
    At the Praetorium, Jesus was severely whipped. (Although the severity of the scourging is not discussed in the four gospel accounts, it is implied in one of the epistles [1Peter 2:24]. A detailed word study of the ancient Greek text for this verse indicates that the scourging of Jesus was particularly harsh.33) It is not known whether the number of lashes was limited to 39, in accordance with Jewish law.5 The Roman soldiers, amused that this weakened man had claimed to be a king, began to mock him by placing a robe on his shoulders, a crown of thorns on his head, and a wooden staff as a scepter in his right hand.1 Next, they spat on Jesus and struck him on the head with the wooden staff.1 Moreover, when the soldiers tore the robe from Jesus' back, they probably reopened the scourging wounds.7
    The severe scourging, with its intense pain and appreciable blood loss, most probably left Jesus in a pre-shock state. Moreover, hematidrosis had rendered his skin particularly tender. The physical and mental abuse meted out by the Jews and the Romans, as well as the lack of food, water, and sleep, also contributed to his generally weakened state. Therefore, even before the actual crucifixion, Jesus' physical condition was at least serious and possibly critical."

    Satan Carrying that Baby

    After my homegroup Bible Study got together, one asked about the baby? We were not sure. Then this question came about last night when I was working at the group home. My co-worker feel it was the coming of the Anti-Christ (e.g. movies-"Advocate", Omega Code, Left Behind, etc...), which I didn't understand when I watched it. When you get a lot of people to talk about this movie, you really learn new things. Keep doing this with as many people during and after this movie as long as you can.

    Jesus Carrying the Cross

  • Carrying Christ's Cross Around the World- The Longest Walk: Arthur Blessitt Has Carried the Cross Through 315 Nations, Walking 38,102 Miles, Commentary by ARTHUR BLESSITT DENVER, April 10, 2009 /

  • "Evangelist Arthur Blessitt made the Guinness Book of Records last year for completing the "world's longest walk": a 40 year, 38,102 mile trek around the world, all while carrying a 12-foot-high cross. His story has been turned into a documentary, "The Cross," which was released last month. He wrote this story for ABC
    In the spring of 1968, I made a 12-foot-by-6-foot cross to hang on the wall of our Jesus Coffeehouse on Sunset Strip in Hollywood, Calif. The young people coming into the building were deeply touched to see a huge rugged cross. I would carry the cross on short trips along the streets of Hollywood and share with people the love of Jesus.
    Then in the fall of 1969, I felt the call of Jesus to take the cross off the wall and carry it across America to identify the message of Jesus with people where they are. On this walk, I felt at home on the road and with the people as I saw the hunger of people for the love and hope of Jesus.
    Soon after, I did my first overseas crosswalk through the United Kingdom and Ireland in 1971. From there it was on to the world.
    I have now walked and carried the cross through 315 nations, territories and major island groups, this includes every nation and continent covering 38,102 miles, which is more than 1½ times around the world at the equator. The journey has gone through cities, deserts, mountains, jungles and 52 nations at war.
    I was chased by elephants, attacked by baboons, a crocodile and a green mamba snake. I have been arrested, jailed or taken in for questioning two-dozen times. Once I was taken out to be shot before a firing squad. This has been through rain, cold, snow and extreme heat.
    My passion and mission has been to obey the call of Jesus and lift up the cross and the love of God to all peoples. The welcome has been glorious with villages and towns gathering to greet the cross and hear the message of Jesus.
    I have walked around the world but I have carried a cross. The cross is about Jesus and Jesus is about Love.
    As people come to the cross they feel this love and hope. No matter what nation or religion people are equal at the cross. Even in the most hopeless places wracked by hunger and war, people would gather at the cross.
    Bringing Hope to War Zones
    As I carried the cross through the war in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1982 and prayed with Yasser Arafat, I came upon a place where a bomb had exploded months earlier. One single flower was blooming in the ashes of war, death and destruction. I sat and cried and smiled for out of the ashes of war, pain and suffering, a flower was blooming.
    The cross and Easter and the resurrected Jesus are all like that flower offering hope, love, forgiveness and salvation in Jesus Christ.
    In a world of war, suffering, suicide, depression, greed and revenge, the cross and Jesus suggest a place where all may come and find life.
    Sure it has been difficult walking the road with a heavy load but people are worth the sacrifice. I am not a sportsman but a pilgrim with a mission. Many people need hope and God more than anything. People can welcome Jesus into their lives and come to know Jesus in a personal way.
    What causes me to go on? The prospect of the next person I may meet! I love God and I love people; I try to keep it simple.
    I have spent most of these years on the road with the people. My wife, Denise, drives in front of me -- she goes a few miles and waits with water and food. We have been together in such places as Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Pakistan and North Korea. She is tender yet fearless.
    Often one or more of my children have been with me.
    I have hundreds of stories and am thrilled that now the story is being told in a new documentary called "The Cross" now showing in theaters across America. It contains film footage and photos I have gathered from around the world.
    I hope it helps people see that God loves them and that Jesus was and is 'sinner friendly'. Jesus welcomes every person no matter what their struggle or failure.
    I am just a sinner living in the mercy and grace of Jesus. I'm just a donkey carrying a wooden load in the form of a cross, lifting up Jesus knowing that he will draw all to himself.
    Peace, love and blessings to all at the glorious Easter season. Let us focus on Jesus and the power of his love to change this world and each person in it.
    After 40 years on the road, I am more excited and optimistic than I was when I started!
    Jesus did it. All glory to God. .."

  • Jesus Christ, Our Burden Bearer By Hannah Goodwyn Producer

  • " – In the midst of excruciating pain, Jesus of Nazareth willingly hung to wooden posts. Below Him, onlookers mocked, while others wept. What a gruesome sight it must have been for those faithful few as they watched their Messiah, their Savior, die in such a way.
    A mere mortal, I can’t presume to know what went through Christ’s mind at that very moment. His spoken words as recorded in the Bible do give believers a glimpse.
    Let This Pass from Me
    Jesus’ conversation with God while praying in the Garden in Gethsemane shows his reluctance to commit himself to the pain of the Cross.
    "Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine." Mark 14:36 (NLT)
    In an act of obedience to God’s will, Jesus suffered so we could be forgiven. As the rusty nails held Jesus’ warped body on the Cross between two common criminals, He cried out to Heaven.
    Jesus prayed, "Father, forgive them; they don't know what they're doing." Luke 23:34 (The Message)
    The Father Turned His Face Away
    Jesus' greatest pain must have been the fact that He was taking on the world's sins. His own Father could not look upon Him in that moment. Even more than the physical pain Jesus went through on the Cross, He was momentarily burdened with our sin on His shoulders. He paid them by dying, and then rose again blameless offering us a chance to be blameless before God through His shed blood.
    When I’ve committed a sin, I often get this sick feeling to my stomach as I realize how my actions have wronged God. I can only imagine how gross our sin felt upon the heart of God as He died for us on that old rugged tree.
    He personally carried our sins in his body on the Cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right.… 1 Peter 2:24a (NLT)
    In those moments before His death, Jesus faced the sins of each one of us, whether we are murderers, adulterers, thieves, liars, religious hypocrites, or unbelievers. He foresaw the atrocities Hitler would commit against His Chosen People. On the Cross, He saw the pain and devastation in the Sudan at the hands of ruthless fighters.
    Wrap your mind around this: He saw the depth of our evil, and still held His arms wide open allowing His body to be broken for us. Jesus Christ sacrificed His pure life to carry the burden of our unholy sin. The Good News
    Jesus’ death was temporary. Three days after He was crucified, and after the payment of our sins was satisfied, Jesus woke up.
    Because of the joy awaiting Him, He endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now, He is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Hebrews 12:2b (NLT)
    Nothing has changed God’s heart about sin. It still grieves Him and he can’t abide it. The difference now is that we, as sinners, are able to fellowship with God because of Jesus’ sacrifice. When we come before Him now, God does not focus on the filth of our sin. If we accept Jesus’ sacrifice, we are forgiven. Our Heavenly Father sees our repentant and obedient hearts and the blood of His precious son, which cleanses us.
    And the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7b (NIV)
    That's the best news I've ever heard. "

  • Journey from the Desert by walking with Jesus Carrying His Cross part 5 2009 April 10 ( by Jim Blazsik

  • Simon of Cyrene, from

  • "Archaeological evidence may confirm the historical reality of the Bible's Simon of Cyrene
    The Bible records that when Jesus was on the way to be crucified, the Roman soldiers forced a man called Simon from Cyrene to carry his cross. (Matthew chapter 27 verse 32, Luke chapter 23 verse 26). It also tells us that this Simon had sons called Alexander and Rufus (Mark chapter 15 verse 21).
    Cyrene was the capital city of the province of Cyrenaica, which was in the eastern part of present-day Libya.
    In 1941, the Israeli archaeologist Eleazar Sukenik from the Hebrew University, and his assistant Nahman Avigad, discovered a rock tomb in the Kidron valley in eastern Jerusalem. ..

    Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry his cross April 2, 2009 by ...paul
    "Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry his cross
    Jesus, the soldiers are becoming impatient. This is taking longer than they wanted it to. They are afraid you won’t make it to the hill where you will be crucified. As you grow weaker, they grab a man out of the crowd and make him help carry your cross. He was just watching what was happening, but all of a sudden he is helping you carry your cross.
    Sometimes we try to do as little as we can and still get by. Others might need our help, but we ignore their needs. Even when we’re asked to help, we sometimes claim to be too busy.
    Help us notice the needs of those around us. Help us do more than just stand there and watch. Help us see the needs of others as opportunities for us to reach out and help as you did."

    Simon of Cyrene From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "....Because his home town, Cyrene, Libya, was located in northern Africa, a connection arose making Simon of Cyrene the first African saintly Christian. Cyrene was, however, a Jewish community where 100,000 Palestinian Jews had settled during the reign of Ptolemy Soter (323-285 BC). They had a synagogue in Jerusalem, where many went for annual feasts.[1] Tradition states his sons Rufus and Alexander became missionaries; the inclusion of their names in Mark suggests that they were of some standing in the early Christian community at Rome. It has even been suggested that the Rufus mentioned by Paul in Romans 16:13 is the son of Simon of Cyrene.[2] Some also link Simon himself with the "men of Cyrene" who preached the Gospel to the Greeks in Acts 11:20.[1] On the other hand, Simon's name does not prove he was Jewish, and Alexander and Rufus were both common names and may have referred to others.[3]
    Simon's act of carrying the cross for Jesus is the fifth or seventh of the Stations of the Cross.[4] Some analyze the passage that Simon was chosen because he may have shown sympathy with Jesus,[1] but others point out that the text itself says nothing, that he had no choice, and there is no basis to consider the carrying of the cross an act of sympathetic generosity.[3]..

  • Crucifixion,from allabout jesus christ

  • "Crucifixion sometimes began with a scourging or flogging of the victim�s back. The Romans used a whip called a flagrum, which consisted of small pieces of bone and metal attached to a number of leather strands. The number of blows given to Jesus is not recorded; however, the number of blows in Jewish law was 39 (one less than the 40 called for in the Torah, to prevent a counting error). During the scourging, the skin was ripped from the back, exposing a bloody mass of tissue and bone. Extreme blood loss occurred, often causing death, or at least unconsciousness. In addition to the flogging, Jesus faced severe beating and torment by the Roman soldiers, including the plucking of His beard and the piercing of His scalp with a crown of thorns. "

    The Last Supper

  • The Last Supper - Dining With Christ, from

  • "The Last Supper: The Significance The Last Supper is described in three of the four New Testament Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. Here are some of the life-changing highlights, as recorded in the Gospel of Luke. First, Jesus predicts He will suffer soon after this meal and it will be His last meal prior to finishing His work on behalf of the kingdom of God (Luke 22:15-16). Second, Jesus gives His followers symbols of remembrance for His body and His blood sacrificed on behalf of all mankind. "And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, 'This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me'" (Luke 22:19).
    Third, Jesus provides a very important principle for living a Christian life: the greatest are those who serve others, not those who expect to be served (Luke 22:26). Finally, Jesus provides hope to his followers: "and I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel" (Luke 22:29-30).
    For the last two millennia, the Last Supper has inspired people to live by faith in Jesus Christ, by serving others instead of following the worldly influences of expecting to be served.
    The Last Supper: The History of the Event
    The Last Supper was held on the evening of preparation for the Jewish Passover, a very holy time for the Jewish nation in remembrance of when God spared the Jews from the plague of death on every firstborn child in Egypt. Jesus arranged the dinner purposely by instructing His disciples where to host it. His twelve disciples were with Him during and after the meal. It is here that Jesus makes the prediction that Peter will deny knowing Him three times before the rooster crows that morning, which became true. Jesus also predicts that one disciple, Judas Iscariot, will betray Him, which also became true. The Last Supper was a gathering for Christ to fellowship with His disciples one last time prior to His arrest and crucifixion.
    The Last Supper: The Application
    After the Last Supper, Jesus Christ willfully and obediently allowed himself to be brutally sacrificed on a wooden cross. He did this to reconcile each of us to God by paying the debt of our sins, which we could never do on our own power. In return, Jesus makes a simple request, remember this act of love He performed on our behalf. Jesus Christ did not have to die for us. He did, however, because He values every life on earth and wants to see each of us sitting at His dining table someday in heaven. Throughout the Bible, and throughout history, the truth of Christ's message has been established - that we can join Jesus in heaven by acknowledging His sacrifice and accepting Him into our life. In addition, we can apply the lessons Jesus taught at the Last Supper to live a faithful life while here on earth by serving others in love. The bread is a symbol of the body of Jesus, never to be forgotten as it was given to us. The cup represents the blood of Jesus, never to be forgotten as he poured out His life for us. Jesus Christ has offered everybody the gift of His life, death and resurrection. The Last Supper reminds us of Christ's sacrifice, and that by faith in Him, we can dine with Christ for all eternity. ...

    Last Supper From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "In the Christian Gospels, the Last Supper (also called the Lord's Supper) was the last meal Jesus shared with his Twelve Apostles and disciples before his death. The Last Supper has been the subject of many paintings, perhaps the most famous by Leonardo da Vinci.
    According to what Paul the Apostle recounted in 1 Corinthians 11:23–26, in the course of the Last Supper, and with specific reference to eating bread and drinking from a cup, Jesus told his disciples, "Do this in remembrance of me". Other events and dialogue are recorded in the Synoptic Gospels and the Gospel of John. Many Christians describe this as the "Institution of the Eucharist" (see Maundy Thursday).
    The vessel which was used to serve the wine is sometimes called the Holy Chalice, and has been the one of the supposed subjects of Holy Grail literature in Christian mythology..."

  • Leonardo da Vinci - The Last Supper Ten Common Questions About the Painting By Shelley Esaak,

  • "...Why is the composition remarkable?
    First, because the disciples are all displaying very human, identifiable emotions. "The Last Supper" had certainly been painted before. Leonardo's version, though, was the first to depict real people acting like real people.
    Secondly, and of major importance - the technical perspective in Last Supper is incredible! You can see that every single element of the painting directs one's attention straight to the midpoint of the composition, Christ's head. It's arguably the greatest example of one point perspective ever created....

    THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST part 12 of 12

    What happened to Jesus during the three days?

    *see Bible

  • Where was Jesus for the three days between His death and resurrection?,

  • "Question: "Where was Jesus for the three days between His death and resurrection?"

    Answer: 1 Peter 3:18-19 states, "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison." The phrase, "by the Spirit," in verse 18 is exactly the same construction as the phrase, "in the flesh." So it seems best to relate the word "spirit" to the same realm as the word "flesh." The flesh and spirit are Christ's flesh and spirit. The words "made alive by (in) the spirit" point to the fact that Christ's sin-bearing and death brought about the separation of His human spirit from the Father (Matthew 27:46). The contrast is between flesh and spirit, as in Matthew 27:46 and Romans 1:3-4, and not between Christ's flesh and the Holy Spirit. When Christ's atonement for sin was completed, His spirit restored the fellowship which had been broken.
    First Peter 3:18-22 describes a necessary link between Christ's suffering (verse 18) and His glorification (verse 22). Only Peter gives specific information about what happened between these two events. The word "preached" in verse 19 is not the usual word in the New Testament to describe the preaching of the gospel. It literally means to herald a message. Jesus suffered and died on the Cross, His body being put to death, and His spirit died when He was made sin. But His spirit was made alive and He yielded it to the Father. According to Peter, sometime between His death and His resurrection Jesus made a special proclamation to "the spirits in prison."
    To begin with, Peter referred to people as "souls" and not "spirits" (3:20). In the New Testament, the word "spirits" is used to describe angels or demons, not human beings, and verse 22 seems to bear out this meaning. Also, nowhere in the Bible are we told that Jesus visited hell. Acts 2:31 says that He went to "Hades" (New American Standard Bible), but "Hades" is not hell. The word "Hades" refers to the realm of the dead, a temporary place where they await the resurrection. Revelation 20:11-15 in the NASB or the New International Version give a clear distinction between the two. Hell is the permanent and final place of judgment for the lost. Hades is a temporary place.
    Our Lord yielded His spirit to the Father, died, and at some time between death and resurrection, visited the realm of the dead where He delivered a message to spirit beings (probably fallen angels; see Jude 6) who were somehow related to the period before the flood in Noah's time. Verse 20 makes this clear. Peter did not tell us what He proclaimed to these imprisoned spirits, but it could not be a message of redemption since angels cannot be saved (Hebrews 2:16). It was probably a declaration of victory over Satan and his hosts (1 Peter 3:22; Colossians 2:15). Ephesians 4:8-10 also seems to indicate that Christ went to “paradise” (Luke 16:20; 23:43) and took to heaven all those who had believed in Him prior to His death. The passage doesn’t give a great amount of detail about what occurred, but most Bible scholars agree that this is what is meant by “led captivity captive.”
    So, all that to say, the Bible isn’t entirely clear what exactly Christ did for the three days between His death and resurrection. It does seem, though, that He was preaching victory over the fallen angels and/or unbelievers. What we can know for sure is that Jesus was not giving people a second chance for salvation. The Bible tells us that we face judgment after death (Hebrews 9:27), not a second chance. There isn't really any definitively clear answer for what Jesus was doing for the time between His death and resurrection. Perhaps this is one of the mysteries we will understand once we reach glory."

    Jesus' Death (Luke 23:44-49)
    " 44It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, 45for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.
    47The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, "Surely this was a righteous man." 48When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away. 49But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things."

    God's Shaking-Earthquake, Curtain Ripped, etc...

  • The Miraculous Events Surrounding the Cross, Matthew 27:45-54

  • "First of all, there is, in verse 45, the indication that from "the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour." This is the first act of God. This is the first divine work. This is the first miracle, if you will, and it lasted, darkness, from 12 noon to 3pm. Scripture tells us that Jesus was crucified at the third hour, which is 9 in the morning, the Jewish day beginning at 6AM, three hours of light had passed until the sun was at its apex, from 9 to Noon. During those three hours, Jesus had broken his silence three times. Once he said, Father, forgive them, for they no know what they do. And then he said, to the penitent thief, truly today, you will be with me in paradise. And then he said, to his own mother, woman, behold, your son. Son, behold your mother, and put his own mother in the care of John. Each of those first three sayings on the cross are expressions of his compassion and his grace. In one, he asks the father for forgiveness for the very ones who crucified him. In the next, he welcomes a wicked man who repented into heaven. And in the third, he shows compassion to his own mother. Each showing grace. Each showing mercy, even in the midst of his suffering. But at noon, when the sun is at its zenith, an astounding miracle is done by God, and it's God's first commentary on the events. Darkness all over the Gaea in the Greek, translated it's a G and a long E, and it's a word for earth. Interestingly enough, in the annals of Roman history, it is recorded that there was darkness over the known earth at this time, as indicated by the early father origin in his writing against Celsius. We don't know the extent of it. We don't know if it covered the whole Earth. It certainly covered as far and wide as Roman history could record. This was not something totally unusual for God to do to interfere with the Sun. He had done it on several other occasions. Once, he had caused the sun to stand still from a human viewpoint, although from a scientific viewpoint, for a time, the Earth stopped revolving all together. On another occasion, he caused the sun to move backwards so that it moved backward on the sundial. On another occasion, in Egypt, he blackened the sun as a part of the horrible plagues that fell.
    But on this occasion, Luke uses a word eclaipo, which means to fail utterly. It's as if he turned the sun off. This is an eclipse, some say. But an eclipse in the middle of the month, which is the time of the Passover? That's impossible, because it's full moon on the opposite side of the earth. This is supernatural darkness. This is a divine miracle, and it is God's first commentary on the events there. Darkness in the Bible is a symbol of judgment, obviously. God's salvation is spoken of as light. God's judgment is spoken of as Darkness. Hell is even called outer darkness.
    *see Science: Astronomy-Aliens, Outer Space Travel, etc...
    And God was affirming by the darkness that the cross was judgment, the place of the severest, most comprehensive divine judgment, then and there on Jesus Christ. And since God only judges one thing, that is sin, it is a judgment on sin. God then affirms that he is judging our sins in Christ, as we heard tonight in Isaiah 53, he was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement to produce our peace fell on him, and by his stripes, we are healed.
    *see Liberal Arts: Law, Justice, etc..
    The darkness then is God's commentary, God's way of saying that his fury is unleashed on Christ. Here is judgment on sin, born by the innocent sin bearing substitute. But there is more. Verse 46, and this is something only our Lord could know. "About the ninth hour," 3:00 in the afternoon, the end of the time of darkness, "Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Only he would know that God would have forsaken him. And by the way, it says he cried out, and it is literally the Greek word for scream. After six hours of immeasurable agony, three of them in total darkness. After six hours, the feeling, the fury of the wrath of God upon him, as his sin bearing comes to a climax, he is strong enough to cry and express the sense of alienation he feels for the first time in eternity from God. And by the way, this is exactly what Psalm 22:1 says he would say. It is the fulfillment of that prophecy which says the same thing, my God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
    And this demonstrates the second miracle. The first miracle, divine darkness. The second miracle, divine separation. This is a kind of reverse miracle, I guess. This is something that is incomprehensible. How can God be separate from God? How can God the trinity be divided? How can the father be divided from the son? How can God forsake his own son, when they are one in essence? All he had ever known was the most intimate communion with the father, the eternal love of the father. And now he is exposed to being treated by the father as if the father hated him rather than loved him. This is a strange miracle in which Jesus feels the alienation. Verse 47, Some of those who were standing there, when they heard him say "Eli, Eli," which is the expression, my God, my God, "began saying, 'This man is calling for Elijah.' They knew better than that. They knew the name of God, Elohim, Eli. They knew. This was just sarcasm. This is just mockery. This is malicious. This is a joke. This is a twisted pun on their part. He's calling for Elijah. Ha ha. Verse 48, some of those who were there as well, "Immediately ran and took sponge, he filled it with sour wine, and one of them put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink." This is a cheap wine diluted and used to quench the thirst of very common people, probably the soldiers. And verse 49, they kept up the mockery. "Te rest of them said, 'Let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him.'
    Here is this immense miracle, which is inexplicable to us, how God can forsake God? And they think it's a joke. There is no way, although I suppose I've been asked many times in my life how to explain this. It is impossible for me to do so. I can only read what you can read. I can take you back to Psalm 22, verse 1, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Far from my deliverance of the words of my groaning. O, my God, I cry by day, but thou doest not answer. And by night that I have no rest." And here's the answer in verse 3, "Yet thou art holy. O, thou, who art enthroned on the praises of Israel." The answer to why God must separate, thou art holy. Because God is holy, he separates himself from the sin bearer. In the back of chapter 1, "art thou not from everlasting? O Lord, my God, my Holy One? Mine eyes are too pure to approve evil. You cannot look on wickedness with favor." And again, it is a reminder of this incredible miracle of separation.
    God is anything buy a bystander. He turns out the sun. He brings the darkness, and then he himself, in some mysterious way, disappears. That's not all. Verse 50, here God acts again. "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit." He cried out again. Very interesting. This is intended by the writers of scripture, and by the Lord himself to indicate how strong he is. It's six hours into his crucifixion; he is still able to scream. It's cradzhas, it means literally to scream. He's not gonna slowly fade into some kind of coma, which with crucified people could take days. He will not die of exhaustion. He will yield up his spirit when the time is right. And if you compare the gospel of John and the gospel of Luke, you find that Jesus had already said "it is finished", John 19:30, and he had already said "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit".
    And that introduces us to the next miracle. The miracle of acceptance. And so, he yielded up his spirit to his accepting father. The work was done. The price was paid. God was satisfied. And Jesus sent his spirit out of his body, and he himself went with it. He had said, no man takes my life from me, I lay it down myself. And that's what he did. When he knew that the father was ready to receive him, because the sin bearing work was finished, and God was satisfied. He knew when the father departed. He knew when he was forsaken. And he knew when he was welcomed. So God is active, turning out the sun. He's active forsaking his own son. He's active when being satisfied, he welcomes his son back.
    There was a fourth miracle in verse 51, "And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Now you have to understand that the temple is naeas, the holy of holies, and the holy of holies had a barrier so that no one could go in there. Only the high priest once a year on the Day of Atonement could go into the holy of holies, where the arch of the covenant was, and there sprinkled blood on behalf of the nation for their sins on the mercy seat on the top of the arch. And the high priest going in there had to have bells on his garment so that if he had gone in there in any sense unclean, and God had killed him, they would know he was dead because they wouldn't hear the bells. As long as they heard the bells, they knew he was still alive, and moving around.
    This is symbolic of the fact that people were shut out of God's presence. No one really could go in there. But it wasn't a gradual change. When Jesus died on the cross, God himself ripped that curtain from top to bottom, ripped it, because Jesus had done what no priest could ever do. Only one priest, a high priest, could go in there, and he couldn't take anybody with him, nor could he make the way for anyone else to come. But at the death of Jesus, God himself ripped the curtain wide open and the holy of holies was open to all. And by the way, this was 3:00 in the afternoon on Passover, and the temple would have been jammed with people. In one moment, the holy of holies that no one had ever seen was completely exposed to everyone. No more Day of Atonement. No more high priests. No more priests. No more sacrifices. No more barrier. And soon, the whole temple would be trampled by the Pagan Romans. And to this day, never ever rebuilt. At this moment, the corruption of that robber's den started to come down. And what was the father saying? Access is open to all. Christ the great high priest did what no priest could ever do. He threw the way to God open. He ripped the barrier. And the father punctuated his work by himself ripping the curtain. And then in verse 51 again, you see another act of God, "the earth shook and the rocks were split." God was giving people preview of what is going to come to those who do not come by way of Christ into his holy presence. One day in the future, God is gonna shake the whole earth. There will be massive earthquakes described in the Book of Revelation, the likes of which no one could even comprehend. And finally, the whole disintegration of the world as we know it. Hebrews chapter 12 talks about the fact that we are a part of an unshakable kingdom. But there's coming a day when God will shake the world. ..."

    "At that moment the curtain in the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart,"- Matthew 27:51

    When the earthquake ripped the temple just when Jesus's spirit was taken to Heaven while he was hanging on the cross, the curtains ripped too. This was a symbolisis that the bridge between "man" and "God" has been bridged through what Jesus did on the Cross

    During the movie, one can watch it and not understand the meaning. That is how Jesus taught as one reads the Bible. He spoke in parables, which one will understand them one by one as one grow to know Him. I read the Bible morning and evening, and I never get tired of reading it as I’m always finding something new. Yes, there are times when the Bible does get boring, which you have to find some other way to make it more interesting…Personal Input on the Bible

    Some of the symbols in the movie are not mentioned exactly within the story in the Bible with the movie. However, they can be interpreted from a Biblical perspective, for example….

    Crow that picked on the criminal on the cross scene. My personal intake after chatting with someone about this scene is the wrath of God. He was ridiculing Jesus and the other guy hanging.

    Throughout the movie, they would have reflections from his past-childhood to adult:

    Tablemaking-as a carpenter, when he sits on it to check it’s stability and washes his hands-then splashing it in the face of his mother
    Stumbling-one of his many falls, which his mother Mary ran to him.
    Triumphal Entry-Jesus’ view going into Jerusalem (celebrated in Palm Sunday-Luke 19:38)

    As I was watching this, it hit me too on my life growing up. Watching glimpses of Jesus’ early years got me to relate to Him more as I remember the good “ole days” growing-up (e.g. childhood, teenager, etc..).

    . Teachings

    Quoted in the Movie-
    -“Love your neighbor, what reward…” -“You will be persecuted because of me -“Forgive them Father, for they do not know what they do… (got Pharisees attention)
    -“As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”-John 20:21

    Not Quoted, but portrayed in the Movie-
    -“When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or whay you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say”-Luke 12:11-12


    The Bible contains many prophecies or events that will happen in the future. Below are just “some” examples relating to Christ’s last 12 hours:

    Luke 9:22 “The Son of Man must suffer many thing and be rejected by the elders, chief priests…”
    Luke 18:31-33 “He will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him spit on him, flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.”

    One can’t expect every detail from the Bible to be shown in “The Passion”. I thought Mel did the best he could with his “God given gifts-talents” in protrarying the 12 hours leading to Christ’s death. I just watched the movie for the “second-time” and pondered on some other important Scripture stories-verses to make note of that wasn’t in the movie:

    -dream warning to ? from his wife that the Gailean shouldn’t be put to death -blood in our hands after ? said he is not responsible of Jesus’ -ripping of the red curtain after the earthquake

    ......More (Aramaic, Crucifixion, Forgiveness, other related movies or plays)....

Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’8 Then they remembered his words.

     9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. 11 But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened. (Luke 24:5-12, New International Version, ©2011)
