Recently, the author of “Killing Jesus”, Bill O’Reilly produced his own version for a TV-movie. How does it compare with Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”?
According to O’Reilly, “Killing Jesus” is a “historical account of the life of Jesus.” That’s strange. I thought the four Gospels in the New Testament were. Q. Where does O’Reilly have the audacity to proclaim his version superior to the Bible? “The Passion of the Christ” stays true to the Gospel. “Killing Jesus” does not. He (O’Reilly) even goes so far as to say that Jesus wasn’t called the “Christ” until after his death. Untrue. When Jesus asked his disciples, “Whom do you say that I am?”
Matthew Chapter 16, verse 16: “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”
O’Reilly’s Jesus doesn’t perform miracles, isn’t divine, and wasn’t fathered by God. According to Mr. O, Jesus was just a regular guy. There have been attempts at “humanizing” the Son of God before. There’s nothing new here, except that it’s been added to a long line of books obsessed with death: “Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Patton”. (Jesus Christ was resurrected, the other men weren’t. HE invalidates death.)
“The Passion of the Christ” stars Jim Caviezel who does a remarkable job. This is tough movie to watch and it was tougher to shoot. Sometimes, you have to go through hell to get to heaven. Favorite scene – “Passion’s” conclusion; Jesus leaving his tomb, a most powerful scene that had me cheering.
Director Mel Gibson did not fictionalize the conflict between Jewish leaders who turn Jesus over to the Romans for crucifixion. The far left hated this movie because they didn’t know what it was about. If they had ever read the Bible, they’d know it’s accurate. I’m not surprised Hollywood sought to destroy Mel Gibson. The entertainment industry is run by Satan worshippers and the Illuminati.
Bill O’Reilly claims to be a Catholic. If so, he’s a fallen away one.
The star of his film is Muslim. What does that tell you?
Most outrageously, O’Reilly acts as if he’s the author, the sole author of the life of Jesus Christ. Ego like this can’t be described. I’m sure Mr. O received a lot of money for it. So did Judas.
