Books On Film | The Passion of The Christ

Since Easter is around the corner, here is an Easter-adjacent adaptation. The film, The Passion of The Christ, was released in 2004 and directed and co-written by Mel Gibson. It depicts a short time period in the story of Jesus' life known as the Passion*, starting with a visit to Jerusalem and ending in his crucifixion

The film was based mainly on Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John from The Bible (Holy Scriptures of Christianity), The Tanakh (the Holy Scriptures of Judaism), and The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Chris by Anne Catherine Emmerich, a German nun who claimed to have had religious visions of the Passion. 


*Latin: passio means suffering.
