We can be glad for Mel Gibsons film, The Passion of the Christ, in at least one respect: it has familiarized many with the term Passion. People now know it refers to the suffering of Jesus Christ. How did his suffering come to be called the passion? The answer is our word passion comes from the Latin word passio, which means suffering. The Passion of Christ is an inexhaustible subject. In these warm and challenging devotional studies, Roger Ellsworth takes a look at the Passion through the eyes of the people most closely associated with it. By reminding us again of the wonder of what Christ did on the cross for ordinary people, he encourages us to become more passionate about the Passion and how we serve our Saviour.
