It was an act of incredible artistic bravery and some said foolishness for Gibson to film a movie with all the dialogue in two dead languages. Seeing a realistic depiction of the passion of our Lord shows how lazy and comfortable we have become. This scene has taught me the significance of valuing everyone you come to meet, not only because Jesus said it was right, but also because the small act of kindness you share to a stranger may be the only kindness they receive.
Details that demand we take this event as historical fact.
