 The Passion of the Christ

The Passion of the Christ concerns the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The dialogue is spoken in the ancient Aramaic language, along with Latin and Hebrew. In the Garden of Gethsemane near the Mount of Olives, Jesus (James Caviezel) is betrayed by Judas Iscariot (Luca Lionello). Jesus is condemned to death for blasphemy and brought before Pontius Pilate (Hristo Naumov Shopov), the Roman governor of Judea, for sentencing. The roaring crowd demand his death, so Pilate orders his crucifixion. Jesus is severely beaten and made to carry his cross up to Golgotha, the hill outside Jerusalem, where he is nailed to the cross.

The Scrounging

Click Here On More On The: Whipping Scene

Jesus was taken to the Praetorium where he would have been stripped completely naked. There his hands were bound to a whipping post. The loincloth in the movie, both in the scourging scene and the crucifixion scene, probably was not present. Scourging was required by Romans law before crucifixion. Under Roman law the maximum number of lashes that were allowed was 39. However, the Roman lictors who did the whipping would frequently work themselves up into a cruel frenzy and exceed the 39 limit, which they may have done in the case of Christ.

There were two lictors standing on either side of Jesus. Each lictor alternately whipped Christ across his shoulders, back, buttocks and legs. Each blow of the flagrum was like the claws of a lion ripping the flesh.

These wounds caused a large amount of bleeding; with blood oozing out of every laceration. An average sized 160-pound man has about 10 pints of blood in his body. The blood lost as a result of the scourging would have been about 4 or 5 pints. This would put Christ into hypovolemic (low blood volume) shock. In this state he would have difficulty standing upright and would tend to pass out. This is consistent with his difficulty with carrying the cross to the execution site. If the blood loss from the scourging is significantly more than this, the scourging itself would have killed him.
