The Agony Jesus Felt on the Cross Was Real

When the movie “The Passion of the Christ” was released 20 years ago, Hollywood insiders mocked it because it offered an extremely bloody depiction of Jesus’ torture and death. Regardless of what you think of director Mel Gibson, he did a masterful job of capturing the brutality of a first-century Roman execution.

I know some Christians who objected to the violence of Gibson’s movie, as if what happened to Jesus should be sanitized. But the truth is that what Jesus suffered on Good Friday was R-rated. It would have been horrifying to watch.

The Christian faith is built on the undeniable, unshakable truth that Jesus suffered unimaginable pain when Roman soldiers nailed Him to a cross. I hope you will ponder that pain as you celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ this weekend.
