If Pontius Pilate, A Roman could find no cause or reason to kill this innocent man, and "wiped his hands clean" of this mans blood, yes, Jesus was meant to die for all of mankinds sins, but it was his own who betrayed him (Was Judas not a Jew, and was it not the Phrasies (Jewish high priests) who paid Judas silver for turning him over? Rome was just the instrument for these high priests to get Jesus out of the way as they were rich and had the power and did not want it disrupted by anyone, and he was not their idea of what a "messiah" was to be.

Lets all get real and not try to be PC, the Bible is the Bible and you cant change history. I think by the Jewish people to continue to deny ANY involvement in the death of Our Lord just makes others get upset and angry

There's nothing "PC" about this. Gibson does not blame the Romans and absolve the Jews; he simply puts on screen what is recorded in the Gospels and what is part of Catholic art and iconography.

It's the libs who are trying to make it sound anti-Semitic. It wasn't, he was very accurate, and they have nothing to wail about. But that doesn't stop them.
