“Everyone wants resurrection, nobody wants suffering.”
“If you look at it day after day, we are all a part of handing Christ over when we contribute to sin. Especially when we betray him and we are Christians.” Jim Caviezel
Jim Caviezel is an American actor who portrayed Jesus in the 2004 movie, The Passion of Christ directed by Mel Gibson. The film covers the final 12 hours of Jesus’ life beginning in the Garden of Gethsemane and ending with his resurrection.
Film critic Roger Ebert, who rated the movie four-out-of-four stars, said in his review: “The movie is the most violent film I have ever seen.”
Director Mel Gibson related in an interview, “I wanted it to be shocking; and I wanted it to be extreme … So that they see the enormity – the enormity of that sacrifice; to see that someone could endure that and still come back with love and forgiveness, even through extreme pain and suffering and ridicule. The actual crucifixion was more violent than what was shown on the film, but I thought no one would get anything out of it.”
Jim Caviezel shares in an intimate interview his journey and challenges that he faced while portraying the son of God. He shares about the physical pain and near death experiences that he endured. He shares about the spiritual attacks that he was under. And he shares about his personal journey to freedom and how it was, “Between me and God.”
Join Jim now as he graciously shares an impassioned challenge and a word of encouragement to all those who are Christ followers. “Set yourselves apart from this generation my brothers and sisters. You weren’t made to fit in, you were born to stand out!”
