Jesus' Passion: The Story of Redemptive Suffering is divided into five parts (5 lessons). In a group setting these five lessons would ideally be done one lesson per week. It examines the Scriptural basis of Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ, and looks at how this powerful portrayal of the suffering and death of Jesus relates to the Bible and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Designed to be used alone or in conjunction with the movie, Jesus' Passion is suitable for individual or group study. If used in conjunction with a DVD of the movie, the study book includes instructions about how to do this, including where to stop the movie each week to correspond to the lesson.
Each lesson includes a short introduction, reprinted biblical texts, study and reflection questions, Points to Ponder commentary, Catechism Connections, as well a summary and quotes from canonized saints and recent popes.
