Reflections on Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ"

By Adele Reinhartz

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2004

The author examines Mel Gibson's controversial film "The Passion of the Christ", focusing on two questions: is the film good, and does the film foster antisemitism? The author concludes that the answers to these questions are no and yes, respectively, although she does not actively attribute antisemitic motivation to Gibson himself based on the film.
