Reflection Of Jesus Christ: The Passion Of Christ

The passion of Christ was biblically accurate for the most part. Some scenes were created to draw the attention of the audience. There was although some similarities between the movie and the bible. And some that were not even in the bible at all. The movie focuses more on the torture, violence and death of Jesus. There is only a brief scene that shows the resurrection of Christ.
In the beginning of the movie, it begins in the garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus is praying. It showed a snake that was crawling around him. Jesus stamps the snake to death.

Everyone eventually panics running off. Peter cuts an soldiers ear in attempt to protect Jesus. The soldier is panicking and Jesus walks by and puts the ear put on and the solider is in utter stock.
