I find it hard to imagine Jesus having children- theres no recollection of it in the Bible, so personally I disagree with the "rumour" that he did.

It's not mentioned in the Bible, but neither are around 20 years of Jesus' life. The first time he's mentioned he's a baby, then he's like 12, and then he's in his thirties. Now, I have no clue what happened during that time either, but I totally believe it's possible that he had a family.

to the fact that people will not be able to handle because some Christians would like to sugar coat Jesus' death. Sad but true. Not very many like to think of the TORTURE, HUMILIATION, and SUFFERING He went through. And It's going to be such a slap in the face for some people.

Tell me, which Christians don't realize Jesus' suffering on the cross? Who "sugar coats" his death? I'm curious. I've never heard of such a thing.

Side Note2: Jim Cavaziel, seems like such a marvelous choice for Jesus, he almost looks like an EXACT replica!


JIM CAVAZIEL

I personally wouldn't say he's an EXACT replica, but he does look fine for the part, in my opinion. 


After reading my message after you posted 'sugar coat'. ...blah blah. I mean that by some Christians (NOT ALL) kind of have a hard time imaginging how horrible the torture was. The whips they used on Him had sharpened bones at the end. and there wasnt just ONE..there were a LOT. (12 seems ot be the magick number). A THRON CROWN! OW! I think people ould to think that they didn't put it on Him tightly but instead sort of...casual like. Going back to the whipping, have you ever seen a slaves' back from a whipping. How is so horribly scarred and dired blood on it...That's what Jesus' back more than likelylookedlike fromt he whipping. Some people owuld like to beleive that He wasjustnailed to the Cross and that was that..but um no....The last 12 hrs of His death (mostly what this movie is time framed in) was...basically Hell on Earth. Perhaps SUGAR COAT was or IS the wrong word, maybe LOOK PAST, NOT LIKING TO THINK ABOUT, is better for this issue. But frankly, who can blame them...His death and torturewas so horrible that we can't EVEn comprehend nor imagine the stuff He went through. And, hons, that is by NO MEANS our fault! We just weren't around and as little children going to Cathchism or SUnday School the teachers wanted to protect from the horrible truth. And even.now as I sit in Conformation class, i find my teracher avoiding tell the HARDCORE, DEAD HONEST, BRUTAL truth....But who can blame him really? MAybe perhaps it's justwhere I am located thati see people not wanting to hear how horrible truth. But i think for SOME people it will be a slap in the face. and when i say SOME PEOPLE...i mean the 6.6 billion OTHER people in the world and NO ONE directly on here.


If you got the wrong impression that I dont beleive in Jesus, God, Mary and the Bible and all that jazz...I'm a Roman Catholic. definently not the best one and by no means will I be seated at the right hand of the Father when I die but I still love, believe and pray to Jesus and God. And believe me, when you're locked up in a mental hospital and when all you have is your Bible to read (besides going to Therapy, meals and sleeping) its kind of hard NOT to beleive someone else is out there. Somuch stuff has happened to me that there is no watthat i CANNOT beleive in a Higher Being.

Side Note A: hence the fact that i put ALMOST by Jim's piccie...


Side Note B: Sorry if this all came off as ab!tch post or something...*hugs oogle tight to MMW* I'd smooch ya on the cheek babe but...i'm sorta sick right now! lol Stupid Mister MOnthly Friend and stress and being sick...blegh....hate being a b!tch sometimes....;);) ;)

Y'know, I saw the book from the movie at Wal-Mart. [picture book, i guess]

Holy MOLY!

It's so graphic. I want to go see it, and i'm not even Christian.

Oh yeah, and a note:

Girl interrupted, no one knows what Jesus looks like anyways. So how can you say he was an 'exact replica?'

No one hates you! We were just questioning what you said, which was in fact your own opinion. And, refering to your other post, I never got the impression that you didn't believe in God or Jesus. I know you believe, and no one has the right to claim you don't believe.

And I now understand what you meant by "sugar coat". I was reading a few articles about the movie the other day, and I now get the point you were trying to make. Some people just don't realize the agony and suffering and torture Jesus endured in the last 12 hours of his life, and that's what you were trying to say, right? I guess sugar coat was just a poor vocabulary choice, that's all.

okay... i can't post the article, because its kind of a flash site... so ill type it out:

"...But Caviezel came away from the experience convinced that Someone had been watching over him, a sense that was borne out when the actor was struck by lightning while working on Golgotha---and simply got up and walked away." (from the official site)

I have the exact opposite problem: My Mum really wants me to go, but I'm kind of afraid. Afraid of what? well, I don't know...I guess of becoming depressed, again, but that's another story....

I think the reason God sent Jesus to go through so much pain was so that he would go through more suffering than any other man alive. Perhaps that way we'd all know that no matter how horrible things are, they aren't quite as horrible as what happened to Jesus, and we'd be reminded that he went through all of this to save us from our sins. He had to go through something of such magnitude to kind of get the point across.
Does that make any sence?

Anyway, I don't know if anybody else caught this, but in the movie they put the nails in Jesus's hands, like on the cross. During crucifications, didn't the nails actually get put through the wrists?
My religion teacher told me that in sixth grade, and that because the nail is put in the wrists it made Jesus' pop out into the palm of his hand

I don't want to see it, but that's because I can't handle onscreen graphic violence. And it's supposed to be really, really bad that way. I understand the need to portray the torture and suffering accurately, but I've heard rumours that they don't include the ascension at the end. Um... Isn't that kind of missing the point?

well im 15 and i saw it with my friends church group and BEWARE. its so magnificantly done...it really puts you in the right mind. the torture is so graphic. people say that its too violent. well it is too violent - because it was to violent. i mean come on peeps! a crucifixtion!
but it is very exact and punctual- i read the gospel accounts today and the movie is word for word. jim caviezel is excellent and literally the whole theatre was DEAD SILENT after it was over. No sound whatso ever. it totally blew me away. don't plan anything after you see it. and bring LOTS of tissues. The portrayal of Satan, Pilate, and Judas was brilliant. GO see it. it is worth it. it makes you realize so much more. You love it and hate it b/c its so hard to grasp, you almost don't wanna believe it, but its so incredibly powerful. Thank you Jesus!

I have to ask you again then, since you saw it: Did they show the ascension or not?
