Jesus and Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ: The Film, the Gospels and the Claims of HistoryAn exciting and engaging book that will appeal not only to academics but to the film-viewing public, educated lay-persons and students. Not only will the book aid this audience in a greater appreciation of the film ‘The Passion of the Christ’ but perhaps more importantly it will enable the reader to distinguish between both the contents of the film and the contents of the Gospels and between the contents of the film and what may be historically reconstructed about Jesus.

Furthermore the book will aid the reader to appreciate the contributions that the study of the Gospels and the historical study of Jesus can make to the discussion of the film ‘The Passion of the Christ’.

Jesus and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ is edited by Kathleen E. Corley, Oshkosh Northwestern Distinguished Professor and Professor of New Testament at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and Robert L. Webb, an independent scholar living near Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The other contributors are:

The Passion of Jesus Christ: Fifty Reasons Why He Came to DieFifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die

The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why was Jesus crucified? Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his death? The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God’s Son. His suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer.

Why did Jesus suffer and die? The central issue of Jesus’ death is not the cause, but the meaning–God’s meaning.

This is what this book is about. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons. Not fifty causes, but fifty purposes–in answer to the most important questions that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
