This one hour narrative is the perfect companion to Mel Gibson's movie, "The Passion of The Christ".
With an awe-inspiring contemporary soundtrack, The Indictment of Christ recounts the Biblical events as Jesus faces accusations designed to ensnare him. Learn how his words baffled the powerful and silenced insinuation. The more people believed, the greater His threat. These stories, all taken from the Bible, expose the people that plotted to kill Jesus and the reasons they sought that end. While Mel Gibson's "The Passion of The Christ" portrays what happened from the time Jesus was captured and crucified, this recording will reveal the events and motives that lead to his capture.

The Indictment of Christ
1. Abolishment of Sheol (Death)
Jesus teaches faith and love performing miracles
The number of followers grows everyday
Those who fear losing their power to this new teaching
Pharisees, Sadducee, Sanhedrin (Jewish Supreme Court)
"Is it not better one man should die than a whole nation?"
2. Galilean Teaching
The sick healed
The "Bread of Life"
Accusations ~ Confrontations
3. The Blind Healed
Could this be the Messiah?
The Kingdom of God has come upon you
The unforgivable sin.
A sign, a riddle of events to come
4. Dangerous Journey into Jerusalem
Acquired Wisdom ~ He who sent me
A unique personality baffles
Believe as we believe, not in this Jesus
5. The Light of the World
And the Father who sent me bears witness to me
The truth shall set you free
Enraged, angered by blasphemy
Many more come to believe this is the Messiah
6. The Good Shepherd
I lay down my life, no man takes it from me
The resurrection of Lazarus
Jesus must be stopped
Death decreed without a trial
7. Prophecy Foretold
Greed in the temple
Hosanna to the Son of David (The Promised Messiah)
Miracles and words confound capture
Questioning Jesus's authority
Frustrating the high priest shocks disciples
Show us a sign
Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up
Parables remembered strengthens faith
8. Jesus Glorified
Now is the Judgment
Be filled with Light
9. Time Grows Short
Call no man your master
Woe to hypocrites
The end plan is set in motion.
11. Summation: Victory, Ascension, Reassurance
Our way to God
Pride and arrogance interferes with Love
Amazement, anger, rage, and illusion clouding sight
Mans' nature forgiven
The one and only true symbol of love and forgiveness
The march to victory ~ the Resurrection
The Immaculate Gift (The Holy Ghost)
When I saw "The Passion of The Christ" I was amazed that anyone had thought this movie antisemitc. Knowing the Bible I knew just how little was revealed of the conflicts and motives to remove Jesus.
I believe holding people responsible for what their ancestors did is ludicrous and would not even occur to me if it weren't for the media. The only way this concept would float is if the descendent coerced or hired the ancestor to do the deed and I'm fairly certain that anyone alive today managed that. As a Christian I strive to compassion, sensitivity and truth. A big part of that is just "being real". I have several very close Jewish friends and I never once thought this would offend them. This is New Testiment (and Hebrew) history. If we start rewriting history then we are destined to relive it.
All major races have committed atrocities. We are all sinners. All our ancestors have sinned. Forgiveness is what Christ taught and forgiveness does not require an apology.

I started working on the Christmas Narration in 1995 and decided to follow it with another. I had done the story of His birth and now I would do the story of His death. Christmas and Easter.
Work and my family began to demand more of my time and I never completed what I envisioned. I did finish what I grew to realize would be part one, the causes that lead to Jesus's crucifixion. Part two would be Jesus in front of Pilate, the cross, the Resurrection, Ascension and Holy Spirit. With "The Passion of The Christ" I've decided to now release this "part one". Listening to discussions about "The Passion of The Christ" I realized just how many Christians were not aware that the Bible reveals Jesus's adversaries and their motives in stories that greatly illuminate the beauty and wisdom of Christ. This narrative recounts the motives and snares by those that were afraid of Jesus and his message.
