Watching Passion Plays
During the holy week, especially on Good Friday, there will be passion plays conducted around churches or on some landmarks within some areas of your city or town. These passion plays re-enact the journey of Christ through his crucifixion. Everything is live and you can feel the every moment and scene.
Theatre acts of the Passion of Christ are similar to passion plays. They also re-enact the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his sorrowful and painful journey to it. However, one major difference is that the actors of the theatre acts may be more experienced and professional. In addition, the setting may also be better as well as the costumes and props. However, watching the passion in a theatre may cost you some money.
Films and Television Shows
You may also watch films and television depicting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Perhaps the most famous film about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ if the one made by Mel Gibson entitled The Passion of Christ. During the holy week, television networks also give TV specials about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
