    • Nietzche:

      This clever episode plays with the Nietzche's idea that those whom see Jesus' suffering as having transactional value, must be sadistic. Mel Gibson is clearly portrayed as a sadist.

      Moreover, it showcases "The Passion"'s theology that the death and suffering are the most significant part of Jesus' life, and therefore of Christianity. Nietzche observed that because of the debt Jesus paid, we sinners are indebted once more, and have an enormous amount of psychological pressure bestowed upon us. That it is wrong to place guilt among "The Passion"'s audience, through Jesus' agony, is this episode's final lesson. Visit the URL for more information.
