The Last Temptation of Christ
Movie Quote Quiz

Judas: How will you ever pay for your sins?
Jesus: With my life, Judas. With my life. I don't have anything else.

Jesus: The pain begins. It slides up my back and just before it gets to my eyes, it digs in its claws.

Jesus: Do you think that God belongs only to you? He doesn't: God's an immortal spirit who belongs to everybody! To the whole world! You think, you are special? God is not an Israelite.

Pontius Pilate: Unfortunately for you, we don't want things changed.

Jesus: God loves me. I know he loves me. I want him to stop.

Satan: I told you we would meet again.

Saul: Judas! What are you doing with this magician?

Jesus: If I was a woodcutter, I'd cut. If I was a fire, I'd burn. But I'm a heart and I love. That's the only thing I can do.

Jesus: If I could touch every stone, if I could breathe on every branch, they'd get up and follow me. So what's wrong with you?

Judas: Rabbi, you broke my heart.

Jesus: You're here to trick me.
The Cobra/Satan: Trick you? To love and care for a woman, to have a family? This is a trick? Why are you trying to save the world? Aren't your own sins enough for you? What arrogance to think you can save the world. The world doesn't have to be saved: save yourself. Find love.
Jesus: I have love.

Pontius Pilate: It's one thing to want to change the way people live... but you want to change how they think, how they feel.
Jesus: All I'm saying is that change will happen with love, not with killing.
Pontius Pilate: Either way, it's dangerous. It's against Rome. It's against the way the world is. And killing or loving, it's all the same. It simply doesn't matter how you want to change things. We don't want them changed.

Saul: You had orders to kill him and you haven't done it. Now he acts like a prophet, and you follow him.
Judas: Did you hear what he said back there?
Saul: Yes I heard him. We took an oath against Rome. I don't see a thing against Rome around here, all I see are Jews against Jews.
Judas: Then you're not listening.

Jesus: I said Love! I didn't say Death.

Rabbi: That is blasphemy.
Jesus: Didn't they tell you? I am the saint of blasphemy. Don't make any mistakes, I didn't come here to bring peace, I came to bring a sword.
Rabbi: Talking like that will get you killed.
Jesus: Me, killed? Listen to me. This temple will be torn down in three days, torn down to the ground.

Girl Angel/Satan: There is only one woman in the world. One woman, with many faces.

Jesus: Today and tomorrow I cast out demons and work cures. On the third day, I will be perfected.

Jesus: I'm not gonna leave here until you speak to me.

Judas: I struggle, you collaborate.

Jesus: Is that you?

Revealing mistake: Willem Defoe plays Jesus in this film. He wears a robe that has been double seamed, and in several scenes when he turns around you can see the stitching where a label is sewn in.
