On one of our liquid sunshine days in Fl. we decided to see the Passion movie.
First reaction is that I wouldn't think that the movie is appropriate for any kids under 12.
Second, it makes more of an impression if you know the story of Christ.
Third, "Where was the anti-Jewish sentiment generated in the movie?" Actually, after seeing the movie, it is the Italians I don't like any more. Didn't the Italians decend from the Romans?
The movie, "Jesus Christ-Superstar" captured the everlasting aspect or Divinity of Jesus more than this movie did. But for the most part, Gibson's movie was more historically correct.
