At first glance, I would have to say that the Passion of Christ is reflective of the Bible story. Traditional mainline teaching quoted the Bible in a way that reinforced Gibson's movie. However, as liberal theology moved into most seminaries and highly influenced mainline theology toward a more watered-down version of Biblical events, this changed. I am not quite sure the watered down version is a good development.
On the other hand, I can appreciate Jewish concerns regarding this issue. And, I can understand why watering down harsh segments of Biblical truths is done in the name of inclusion. But in general, our liberal theology is not playing well at most churches.
People are not embracing a liberal theology. There is something about attending a Sunday sermon on the religious benefits of recycling trash to save the environment or listening to a guest speaker talk on the religious importance of the Voting Rights Act. My liberal denomination has lost members nation-wide every year for the past 20 years. Most other liberal denominations are facing similar membership declines.
To pound this home, I heard a sermon at my local UCC a few Easters ago and found it odd. The minister went too far in trying to explain away the Bible text and references to Jewish activity in the last days of Jesus. In fact, I lost her logic as she tried to grapple with the Bible story and then explain how the Jews that plotted the death of Jesus were really good people. I still remember her strained presentation as she emphasized the goodness in Judaism. It was an uncomfortable sermon for her.
In conclusion, I appreciate your post. And, I agree with some of your ideas. But, rewriting the Bible to accommodate contemporary theology is a danger. Historic Biblical concepts can be understood within context. And, contemporary theology can be rewarding. But, rewriting and devaluing Bible stories is not beneficial for our Christianity.
