The betrayal and death of Jesus began a period of trial in which his conviction, torture, and execution performed the function of being the sacrifice for all the sins of man. Another comic book movie, Black Panther, has since surpassed it as #1, but for over a decade, The Passion of the Christ was also the highest-grossing February movie in the U.S. Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book also discusses the film’s depiction of the Jews and Romans from a theological and cultural perspective and examines the various sources of the film, notably the Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich.
