The Passion of the Christ

Factual error: According to the Gospel of Luke (23:28) The sign nailed on top of the cross identifying Jesus as the "king of the Jews" was written in three languages: Greek, Latin and Hebrew. This is confirmed by the Gospel of John (19:20). In the movie the Greek and Hebrew are eliminated from the sign thus giving to the Latin an importance that it did not have for most of the people. This is fixed in the Definitive DVD release.

Suggested correction: This movie is an adaptation of the story. It is not intended to be 100% factual to the Biblical narrative. All adaptations of Bible stories have adaptational changes in them, and this is one such change. An adaptational change is not an error. Rather, it is a creative choice.

Continuity mistake: Every shot of Jesus in this film shows him with brown eyes, except one. A shot of Jesus looking up to the sky before he dies, you can see one eye (the one half-shut and bruised) is Jim Caviezel's natural blue.

This is not correct. His eyes are blue and they were digitally altered to brown in the film.

Continuity mistake: When Jesus tells Peter to stop fighting against the temple guards when in the garden, you can see the background behind him: a small tree by a large one. The shot cuts to Peter and then back to Jesus telling him to again stop. The background is now reversed.

Question: Does anyone know the significance of the Romans clubbing the feet of the two thieves crucifed at Golgotha? And why they did not do this to Jesus? I know there's an explanation for this somewhere in the gospels but I can't find it.

Jeanne Perrotta

Chosen answer: When someone is crucified, they die from suffocation because when the arms are stretched out that far wide and you can't move your legs it is close to impossible to breathe. The platform that their feet were nailed to would serve, for a while, a way to boost your body up enough to be able to take small breaths in and out. Eventually when they were tired of waiting for you to die they would break your legs so you couldn't boost yourself up enough to breathe well and you would asphyxiate quicker. When the storm came after Jesus died, they broke the legs of the 2 thieves, but did not break Jesus's legs. The prophecy stated that the Messiah would die with no broken bones.
