    • Hi China, I have watched that movie over and over again it is truly in my opinion thee best remake of Jesus life prior to dying on the cross, I take my hat off to Mel Gibson for a job well done. My family and I plan on watching it on Sunday after dinner I can't tell you how many times I've reviewed it, too many to say, but I'm a beliver and I do know that Jesus is coming back. I was just reading the other day in the book of John Ch.20:7 where it talks about Jesus resurrection and the meaning of the folded napkin, meaning he's coming back. Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?

      The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin. Is that important? You'd better believe it! Is that significant? Absolutely! Is it really significant? Yes!

      In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition. When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it. ; The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished.
      Now if the master was done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, "I'm done". But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because the servant knew that the folded napkin meant, "I'm not finished yet." The folded napkin meant, "I'm coming back!"
      He is Coming Back!!!!!!!!

    • I watched it grasping a TOWEL to dry the tears just streaming down my face. I have only watched once since it was so disturbing.

    • As an adult, I never quite understood the degree of brutality involved in the crucification of Jesus, until five years ago when the members of my church and I  went to the movie theater to watch “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.”  This was the most humbling experience for me to watch the extent of physical pain and torture, which Jesus had to endure before His death on the cross.  

      As a gentle reminder of Jesus dying on the cross to provide eternal life to all Believers, I have started an Easter tradition of my own to watch the movie, “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST” each year before Easter Day.  If you have never seen the controversial Mel Gibson movie, I highly recommend to watch it before Easter Day to have a full appreciation of the crucification and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    • I have always wanted to see this movie.  Maybe I will head to the video store and watch it with my family.  I know my husband and son would love to see it with me.  To all of you, have a blessed Easter weekend...

    • I always read in the Bible about the Lord being crucified. BUT, there was something about seeing it portrayed in this movie that took on a whole new meaning for me.

      The thing to think about is Isaiah 52 :14. It says that his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness.

      When you read that it really makes you think how bad he was beaten. We would NOT know he was human. I just cannot imagine.

       Thank you for giving your life for me and  thank you Lord for being a God of second chances !!!!!!!

    • Yes, I saw the movie when it first came out. Indeed it leaves you with a new appreciation of Jesus’ life and death. It made my cry and my heart is tight right now. I will not watch it again because it grieves me so.
