Mel Gibson's "The Passion of The Christ" focuses on the last heartbreaking hours of Jesus' life.
The film begins in the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus has gone to pray after partaking in the Last Supper,
and faces the temptations of Satan. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, Jesus is then arrested and taken within the
city walls of Jerusalem, where leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy
and his trial results in a condemnation to a violent death by crucifixion.
Once the sentence is pronounced, Jesus is forced to carry a heavy wooden cross to Golgotha
amidst throngs of jeering citizens and horrendous beatings, and ultimately suffers a horrific death on the Cross.
This film was rated R for sequences of graphic violence.
