This Jesus is in love with Mary of Bethany, and although she obviously has the look of love in her eyes and he reciprocates the looks, there is something that prevents him to ask her to marry him, but he does not know what it is, when he asks his father about it, Joseph only answers; "I'm just a carpenter, but you Jesus, you are not just a carpenter." Before dying, his earthly father lets him know that he is expected to do something to deliver the people of Israel from the Roman tyranny, yet he does not understand what or why him. "You want me to step out but you leave alone" he tells his father in the grave, he begs God to raise him, he demands Him, and finally, he accepts God's will. It is Mary his mother who tells him about his divine conception and encourages him to follow his heart. That's when he leaves for forty days and forty nights to the desert to fast and meditate about his future. His innocence and great faith are evident in his encounter with Satan, when he tempts him to turn the stones into bread to feed the people of Israel so they won't die he answers: "They die because of the hearts of stone of other men, not because of the will of God." When told by Satan that in order to make people listen he should throw himself from the Temple, and have God's angels come rescue him, "that would get the people's attention." Jesus seems to understand Satan's point of view and he is about to jump, then stops and turns to tell him: "If God wanted to test nature's laws, he wouldn't have sent me." It is through the third temptation that he realizes He is "The lamb of God."

Listing every aspect of the cinematic Christ-figure that Baugh outlines would amount to retyping his book, which is outside the scope of this paper.
I firmly believe in one particular teaching of his and have practiced that belief throughout my life. That teaching is about forgiveness. Jesus tells us in Bible that we should forgive our enemies and by doing so God will forgive us of our sins. I totally believe in the teaching of forgiveness.
And all these were recorded in the book of John. The book of John is a well-written gospel that identified Jesus Christ as the awaited Son of God and promised Savior. Accordingly, John symbolically used common and everyday objects and situations so people may understand the identity of Christ as the Redeemer.
One of the salient features of the Gospel of John is that it mentions Judas more often than the three synoptic gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke and portrays the disciple in such a negative light that it can be said that he thoroughly assassinates Judas' character.
Then the tortures and beatings he faces are shown so deeply that it can disturb the viewer's emotions. The movie moves slowly with a gloomy environment. Along his path to the Olive Mountain his life incidents are remembered now and then. Other than that the movie moves along a single stream.
The basic contention made by Watt is that Jesus Christ was right because they had accurately predicted his life as well as his mission. According to Watt Jesus Christ himself argued that the gospels have to be literally true, and that everybody, which listen to them or read them should believe that to be the case.
may not have mentioned Jesus Christ to make it a movie that has obvious religious undertone but its characters and circumstances are patently Christian. For example, Morpheus ship is named Nebuchadnezzar which is a biblical character. On it also is inscribed the word Mark III
