[random notes: Passion – movie trivia thoughts]

During the scourging scene, James Caviezel accidentally got whipped twice. The first time knocked the wind out of him, and the second time hurt so much it caused him wrench his hand quickly from his shackles, scraping his wrist badly. The remainder of the scourging scenes were finished by using visual effects: the actors playing Roman soldiers held sticks without the leather tails, and acted out the whipping motion, while Caviezel would react as if hit. The tails were later digitally composited into the shots. Make-up wounds on Caviezel’s body were digitally covered until the actual hit by the whip, creating the illusion that they suddenly appeared.

IMDB’s Trivia for The Passion of the Christ

I like reading trivia stuff. My brain is full of it. I do not know why I am such a trivia junkie, but knowing random things people don’t usually know makes me… dunno, feel smart, i guess.

Anyway. I was reading the trivia for the Passion of the Christ the other day and came upon this bit.

Jim Caviezel accidentally got whipped twice… and it was already a big deal.

That made me think of what Jesus went through… for He wasn’t accidentally hit twice. He was given 39 cruel lashes and those Roman guards weren’t pretending.

The thought made me stop and shudder at first… and then say a heartfelt “Thank you…” (not for the first time, but… but yeah…)…

Although I read this two days ago, it got stuck in my mind…

His love is astounding.

I love Foolish Things’ song called Find Your Way Back

It’s going to crush You inside and out. It’s going to break You, my Son. But Jesus the choice is Yours because I know the sin is theirs to pay, the debt is theirs to owe.

But we can make a way, close the gap their sin has made, Your blood could right their wrongs, and we could sing our song to call them…

“Find your way back to me, I know your faults, but I was pierced so you’d be healed. Turn your heart back to Me, I paid the cost ’cause I couldn’t change the way I feel”

Can this cup be taken? Dad I see, if I take their sin upon myself, You’ll turn your back on me. I know they’re guilty, but I love them too. If my death can build a bridge for them I’ll bring them back to You, and we’ll sing it…

“Find your way back to Me, I know your faults, but I was pierced so you’d be healed. Turn your heart back to Me, I paid the cost ’cause I couldn’t change the way I feel”

So I made a way, closed the gap your sin had made, the blood can right your wrongs, would you listen to the song, we’re singing…

“Find your way back to Me, I know your faults, but I was pierced so you’d be healed. Turn your heart back to Me, I paid the cost ’cause I couldn’t change the way I feel”
