A News Anchor's Perspective on "The Passion of the Christ"
- Monday, January 26, 2004
The truth is this: Is it just a "movie"? In a way, yes. But it goes far beyond that, in a fashion I've never felt - in any forum. We may think we "know". We knownothing. We've gone 2,000 years -usedto the idea of a pleasant story, and a sanitized Christ. Weexpectthe ending, because we've heard it so many times. Godforgiveus. This film tears that all away. It's is as close as any of us will ever get to knowing, until we fully know. Paul understood. "Be urgent, in and out of season."
Luke wrote that Jesus reveals Himself in the breaking of the bread. Exactly. "The Passion Of The Christ" shows that Bread being broken.
Go see this movie.
