Mel Gibson's film "The Passion of Christ" - dragging up
sold out Catholic's from Cambridge university and their own
Jewish journalists to poo-poo the film.
In the Sunday Mail today, Peter Hitchens does a similar job
and suggests that people should read the orginal story in the
James 1st Authorised Version. Well, I agree, Peter. And
so here it is ! Let's see if you dare poo poo that !

The Gospel According to St. John, Chapter 18
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with
his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden,
into the which he entered, and his disciples.
And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for
Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
Judas then, having received a band of men and officers
from the chief priests and pharisees, cometh thither with
lanterns and torches and weapons.
Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon
him, went forth, and said unto them, whom seek ye ?
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto
them, I am he. And Judus also, which betrayed him, stood
As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they
went backward, and fell to the ground.
Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye ? And they
said, Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore
ye seek me, let these go their way:
That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of
them which thou which thou gavest me have I lost none.
Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote
the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The
servant's name was Malchus.
Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the
sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I
not drink it ?
The the band and the captain and the officers of the Jews
took Jesus, and bound him,
And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in
law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same
Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews,
that it was expedient that one man should die for the
And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another
disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest,
and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out
that other disciple, which was known unto the high
priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and
brought in Peter.
Than saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter,
Art not thou also one of this man's disciples ? He
saith, I am not.
And the servants and officers stood there, who had
made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed
themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and
of his doctrine.
Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I
ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple wither
the Jews always resort; .....
Note: Jesus always refers to the Jews in the third
party. He was not a Jew - he was a Palestinian.
.... and in secret have I said nothing.
Why askest thou me ? Ask them which heard me,
what I have said unto them: behold, they know what
And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers
which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand,
saying, Answerest thou the high priest so ?
(And the arrogant vermin are still slapping Palestinians
around he face today)
Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear wittness
of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me ?
Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high
And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said
therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples ?
He denied it, and said, I am not.
One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman
whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the
garden with him ?
Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
The led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of
judgement: and it was early; and they themselves went not
into the judgement hall, lest they should be defiled; but
that they might eat the passover.
Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation
bring ye against this man ?
They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor,
we would have not delivered him up unto thee.
Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him
according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto
him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death;
That they saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he
spake, signifying what death he should die.
Then Pilate entered into the judgement hall again, and
called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of
the Jews ?
Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself,
or did others tell it thee of me ?
Pilate answered, Am I a Jew ? Thine own nation and
the chief priest have delivered thee unto me: what hast
thou done ?
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if
my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants
fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but
now is not my kingdom of hence.
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a King then ?
Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a King.
To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into
the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.
Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice.
Pilate sayeth unto him, What is truth ? And when he
had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and
sayeth unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you
one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release
unto you the King of the Jews ?
Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but
Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it
on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
And said, Hail, King of the Jews ! And they smote
him with their hands.
Pilate therefore went forth again and sayeth unto them,
Behold, I bring him forth to you, that yea know that
I find no fault in him.
The came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns,
and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them,
Behold the man !
When the chief priest therefore and officers saw him,
they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
Pilate saith unto them, take ye him, and crucify him:
for I find no fault in him.
The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by out
law he ought to die, because be made himself the Son
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more
And went again into the judgement hall, and saith unto
Jesus, Whence art thou ? But Jesus gave him no
The saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me ?
Knowest thou that I have power to crucify thee, and
have power to release thee ?
Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all
against me, except it were given thee from above:
therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the
And from thence forth Pilate sought to release him:
but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go,
thou art not Caesar's friend: Whosoever maketh
himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought
Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgement seat in
a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew
And it was the preparation of the passover, and about
the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your
But they cried out, Away with him, away with him,
crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify
your King ? The chief priests answered, We have
no king but Caesar.
The delivered he him therefore unto them to be
crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called
the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew
Where they crucified him, and two other with him,
on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross.
And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH
THE KING OF THE JEWS.
This title then read many of the Jews: for the place
where Jesus was crucified was neigh to the city:
and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and
Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate,
Write not, The King of the Jews, but that he said
I am the King of the Jews.
Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
And they are still manipulating our authorities to do
their dirty murders for them today. As in the case
