Christ never used his divine powers to save himself or in rage against his enemies (other than Satan) because God's power is manifest in a new way with the birth of His son. Again, for me, Jesus' suffering was only part physical, a great deal of his pain was psychic - feeling the betrayal of all who knew him, and bearing the sins of all the world. Gibson's ripping flesh and spurting blood, while part of the story, is like clanging symbols that drown the experience of God's blessed music. If Mel Gibson were a prophet, I believe I would hear the same melody as he does. I do not. I do not doubt his faith. But God gave us a sketch not a photograph because he intended to have us discover the Truth ourselves not have it fed to us.
