(John 15:18-20) The apostles face the persecution Jesus forewarns of when the Sadducees confront them in the temple for teaching the resurrection (Acts 4:1-4), when Sanhedrin calls for a public trial of the apostles (Acts 5:17), and most courageously, Stephen, who is martyred for his preaching (Acts 6:8-8). Stephen’s martyrdom, like Jesus’ is over his teachings, and he is similarly testified against. Angered by his words, they bear false witness against him, saying “We have heard him speaking blasphemous words against Moses and God.” They [members of the synagogue] stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes, accosted him, seized him, and brought him before the Sanhedrin. They presented false witnesses who testified, “This man never stops saying things against [this] holy place and the law” (Acts 6:11-14). When Jesus is brought before Pontius, the people bear false witness against him saying he is teaching blasphemy, claiming to be God.
It is obvious in the movie and the Bible though, that Jesus has no bad intentions or threats to anybody, yet he becomes the enemy. The implied reason for this is that the Jews rejected Jesus and God.

The crowd listening to Jesus expected the Samaritan to kill the Jew, who was left for dead, but instead was bandaged and taken care of by him. Even though the Samaritan was against the Jews, he had mercy on the injured man, regardless of what religion he was. This tells Christians to have mercy on everyone, even those of a different religion, and to look after and care for all. Another example of what Christians believe is the story of the Centurion's Servant. The centurion, who was a different race from Jesus, realised that Jesus would be unclean if he entered a non-Jewish house, according to Jewish law.

The Paschal Mystery of Christ; the passion, death and resurrection and the religious message of these is shown in Jesus of Nazareth. The passion is Jesus withstanding torture to show the unconditional love he has for each and every one of us. With his death, Christ liberates all humans for their wrong doings and forgives them. The most importance is put on the Resurrection of Jesus because by rising he is opens the pathway for new and eternal life for us.

It was only when Jesus a truly innocent being could be sacrificed could the link between god and people be restored .Death is evil powerfulness weapon against mankind by Jesus dying and rising from the dead conquered death and in a mater of words liberated from death and now leads the way for us to over come evil. It is very hard to follow the path of god, but it is when we see Jesus willingly accepting to go through unimaginable pain and to die a cross.

Nero burned half of Rome and then blamed the Christians, he even dipped some in kerosene and then lit them on fire so that there was light for the sporting events. Peter was even crucified, but he didn’t feel he deserved to die the same way as Christ so he was crucified upside-down. Persecution was so bad that Christians were accused of having a “hatred for the human race,” cannibalism, and incest. The response of the Christians has a lot to do with the influence upon the church.

Pilate found him innocent, but in attempt to find a reason to kill him, he let the crowd decide Jesus’ fate. Stirred by the Jewish chief priests, the crowds shouted, "Crucify him!" Jesus was beaten, mocked, and spit on before His crucifixion.
Firstly, they had to locate Jesus in order to press charges on him and this is where Judas came in - he is believed to have betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. But did Judas hate Jesus? In my opinion, Judas actually loved Jesus and we know first his greed and then his guilt got the better of him and he killed himself. This is evidence that Judas didn't hate Jesus and he was so upset about betraying his friend, this seemed the only way to go for him. At the Passover meal, we believe Jesus knew that one of his disciples would betray him. "

The Blind beggar addresses the Jesus as the son of David recognizing him as the messiah, and as “Jesus” as well. Unlike all the other miracles in the gospel Jesus does not try to silence the man but has already accepted the fact that he will die.
