Movie and Discussion

In our ESL conversation group we watched and discussed the movie hosted by Larnelle Harris called "The Passion - The Last Days of Christ". (This is not the Mel Gibson movie.) It is part of The Visual Bible series with Bruce Marchiano playing Jesus. The video runs for 45 minutes. I wrote discussion questions and prepared information on the historical and cultural background to help my ESL students understand the context of the events. The movie divides the last days of Jesus into six parts - The Triumphant Entry, The Last Supper, The Garden, The Betrayal, The Crucifixion and The Resurrection. I played each section and then stopped the tape to discuss what had happened. Please see the two page handout with all the discussion questions.
In addition, as an ESL group we will attend the Easter Drama and Music Production at our church.
