What motivated Mel Gibson to make a movie about Jesus' final hours?
In an interview that appeared in the February 2004 issue of the Knights of Columbus magazine Columbia, Mel Gibson said the following about deciding to make the film, "About 13 years ago I came to a difficult point in my life, and meditating on Christ's sufferings, on his passion, got me through it. ... And when I did that, through reading, and studying, and meditating and praying, I began to see in my own mind what he really went through. ... The story, the way I envisioned the suffering of Christ, got inside me and started to grow, and it reached a point where I just had to tell it, to get it out."
