On the Passion movie

Recently, I saw the Passion movie. I went, because I had to speak about the movie for my job in the Jewish community. The movie was very very violent and quite troubling to me for a number of reasons. (I think it is important to say that non-Christians and believing Christians see different movies from one another, especially those of us who are Jewish.)

No offense to those of you who are Christian who find value in the movie, but I found it deeply disturbing.

Many resources and websites have been collected and put together on the movie. A great place to start is the Commission on Interreligious Affairs.

Another note - survivors should be particularly careful about the movie, as the violence might be triggoring.
