LOL...what was to write? The story came from the four Gospels in Aramaic. I’d say he was over-paid.

There were two other - and IMO pervasive - sources for Gibson's Passion. Many specific story points and details in the movie were lifted from Anne Catherine Emmerich's "vision" Dolorous Passion, and from the "private revelations" given to Mary of Agreda.

Gibson admits as much. On the DVD there is a commentary track with Gibson and two Catholic Theologins and they generally point out which parts of the movie are based on those sources. It's a very cool commentary which points out lots of little subtle things going on in the movie I never would have picked up on watching on my own.
