Pray for this Mel Gibson, because his possibly morbid fascination with the medical aspects of Christ's suffering, beatings, scouraging, crucifixion may indicate Mel is sadly suffering himself. A dementia related to self-loathing. We must appreciate what Jesus suffered for all mankind, yes. Dwell on it graphically, when Hollywood and video games and mass entertainment already focuses on violence a lot? No thanks. The Passion may glorify the pain and cruelty inflicted on Jesus, and downplay the victory of Jesus over death in His resurrection. And it may cause trouble for Jewish people worldwide.
