You can find many opinions, what did you get from the viewing experience...

Lord, have mercy on the Christians in Mosul!

I don't know. ISTM the Gospels certainly don't whitewash the agony of Christ's Passion on the Cross, but they also don't make as much of the Passion as the hagiographic texts do of the saints, either. In the end, it seems that all the Gospel writers see the Passion in connection with and in the context of its fulfillment in the Resurrection. Christ IS risen! For the saints, however, this is a promise and a foretaste of their future resurrections, so we emphasize more how much they suffered for Christ that they might rise with Him on the Last Day.

So wait when we die, we don't exactly get judged then (either we go to Paradise or to a 'chasm of darkness?')? I know there is two judgments one after death and the final judgment, I guess I'm confused.
I meant my post to be understood as speaking to the subject of Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ. I did not mean for it to be the focus of an off-topic meandering. Therefore, I have moved your question and the replies it has garnered to another location (http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,31501.0.html) where it can be the topic of its own thread. In the future, I advise you to start new threads if you want to ask off-topic questions rather than risk derailing existing threads. Thank you.

I'm sure it was mentioned in the thread, but this movie taught me that Jesus invented sitting at the table.
