The Power And The Gory: The 23 Bloodiest Jesus Christs Of Easter 2014

by | 20th, April 2014

WHEN Jesus died for our sins and was born again, he split history in two; it divided BC from AD. All other major religious figures are dead and buried. Only Jesus is alive and he’s giving jobs to actors who want it play him in Passion plays. Fake blood flows freely. Beards and hair are grown long; or bought from fancy dress shops and stuck on to penitent heads. In the Philippines, the players got the extra mile, allowing themselves to be nailed to a cross, hands and feet puncture by willing Romans.

It all being what Jesus would have wanted.
