Was God Trying to Tell Mel Gibson Something?

Not many people know that the actor who played Jesus in this film was struck by lightning the last day of filming.

I don't know if God was trying to tell Mel Gibson something or not. If you think so, what do you think God was trying to tell him? I'm curious.

While I don't have an opinion about the lightening strikes, I do have an opinion on the movie and with it being called controversial. It showed the truth and truth often hurts (or should I say "pierces the human heart"), so I guess they called it controversial instead.

When this film first came out, I watched it with a very queasy stomach. The scenes showing Christ's torture and crucifixion were pretty graphic, and it bothered me a lot to think about Jesus going through that. In reality, His death was even worse than depicted in the film, so to give the director his due, I think he did well.


As the prophet Isaiah said in Chapter 52:13-15:
 
"See, my servant will act wisely;
    he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
14 Just as there were many who were appalled at himhis appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
    and his form marred beyond human likeness


The rest of the movie was interesting to watch and stayed true to the Gospels, I think. I liked the added character of Satan following the Lord's movements. Because I do believe that he was so arrogant and naive, that he actually thought that Jesus' death meant that he'd won against God! I have to chuckle at this because he must have been furious to realize that the opposite had happened and that he'd been defeated. Jesus' death and resurrection meant eternal life for all of us who believe on His Holy Name.

As for those who thought the film was an attack against Jews because it portrayed them as murderers - well, they were. Jesus was a Jew and he was killed by his own people. There's no way to get around this fact. However, I don't think that Mel Gibson made this movie with the intention of riling up Orthodox Jews. I think it was made to show the Passion of Christ as realistically as possible.

Oh I don't know.

What I found interesting is that a witness said when it happened they saw the actor with lightning shooting out from his ears. Who knows what it was all about but I would not just mark it off as coincidence.

That's true, for sure. Some people don't survive being hit by lightening, so that fact the he lived is pretty amazing too.  ;)

Well Jim had to have heart surgery afterwards and he nearly did die. Possibly God was correcting something with his heart. As it is now the actor is starring in a new movie, I suppose a sequel of some type. Jim Caviezel has some amazing testimony.
