i think i read that the line(s) in question was removed that said something about the blood of jesus being on the jews. and, i think it was focus groups that caused gibson to make the edit...all that effort to get details correct and then he succumbed to focus groups. <br><br>here it is:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>The New York Times reports that in response to recent focus group results about his Christ movie, and probably in part due to protests by Jewish critics, Mel Gibson has decided to delete a controversial scene about Jews from his film "The Passion of the Christ". <br><br>A scene in the film in which the Jewish high priest Caiaphas seemingly places a curse on the Jewish people by declaring of the Crucifixion"His blood be on us and on our children" will not appear in the movie's final version said an anonymous associate of Gibson.<p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2004/02/04/movies/04PASS.html?hp">ny times article</a><br><br><br>
