This paper summarizes and analyzes Mel Gibson's movie "Passion of the Christ", explaining the film's theological, historical and artistic elements. The paper also explains that, while each of these elements are already controversial by themselves, in combination made the film even more prone to controversy.
From the Paper:"In the earlier category are moments like that in which Jesus falls and then speaks to his mother telling her that he will make "all things new." This quote is out of context, coming from considerably later in the Bible. The point is not that Jesus actually made all things new at this historical moment, but rather than Gibson wishes the audience to know that the purpose of this suffering is to bring about a state of newness and grace -- and not having time to make a film of the entire history of Christianity, he moves this vital point into the narrative, making it prophetic rather than active."
