Is the movie "The Passion of the Christ" biblically accurate?Question: "Is the movie "The Passion of the Christ" biblically accurate?"
Answer: The movie "The Passion of the Christ" was, for the most part, Biblically accurate. There are a few scenes in which "artistic license" was taken, but it was within the scope of the Biblical account. Examples of this "artistic license" were demonic baby Satan was carrying, the demonic children tormenting Judas, and the woman wiping the blood off of Jesus' face on the way to the crucifixion site. Mary's role was overemphasized beyond what the Bible describes. As with any film based on the Bible, we should always compare what we see and hear with what the Bible actually says. Overall, if you see the movie "The Passion of the Christ" and read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) - you will find that the movie follows the Bible very closely.
