Gibson‘s movie, The Passion of the Christ, among other important issues, triggered questions of authenticity, interpretation and the use of sources. My aim in this article is twofold: first of all, to examine Gibson‘s use of sources, of biblical as well as extra-biblical origin; secondly, to provide a theological reading of Gibson‘s interpretation of the passion story.


Arnfrídur Gudmundsdottir Meeting God on the Cross: Christ, the Cross, and the Feminist Critique., New York: Oxford University Press 2010

This book aims to construct a feminist theology of the cross, giving hope to those who are searching for courage and strength, amidst suffering and pain. While the symbol of the cross cannot be recovered by women without a recognition of its abuse, I maintain that often the difference is not recognized between abuse of the cross and an essentially abusive theology of the cross.
