Scholars find fault with Gibson’s “Passion”.
Nice to see that a bunch of the stuff scholars are bitching about is stuff I already pointed out to various friends in discussions. I mean, sure, some of it is stuff you can argue over. But there are studies showing that crucifixion in the classic pose, with nails through the palms and no other support isn’t possible. It doesn’t work.
Thank you. That is all.

    “Jesus talking to (Pontius) Pilate and Pilate to Jesus in Latin!” exclaimed John Dominic Crossan, a professor of religious studies at the Chicago-based Roman Catholic De Paul University. “I mean in your dreams. It would have been Greek.”
    That is just what Dom would say!
    [physical anthropologist Joe] Zias said Jesus would not have carried the entire cross to the crucifixion as vertical beams were kept permanently in place by the ever efficient Romans.
    “Nobody was physically able to carry the thing (the entire cross).It weighed about 350 pounds,” Zias said. “He (Jesus) carried the cross-beam, maximum.”
    While I would like to see just what all the hubbub is about, I’m reluctant to send any $$$ into Gibson’s pockets.
