The re-release of Mel Gisbon’s interpretative film on the death of Jesus is out in theatres this week. The Passion of the Christ made lots of money for Gibson and his associates but it was a flawed filmed that took the four basic gospel stories and made them into a composite story– and then added extra-Biblical material never heard in the Bible. The Passion story has been used for thousands of years to blame Jews for the death of Jesus and Gibson’s film promoted that anti-Semitic viewpoint. The National Council of Churches USA has information on their web site that will help viewers of the film and churches assess the theological message Gibson has been working to spread.
