The Passion of 'The Last Temptation of Christ'

In Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis’s novel, Jesus is treated as a real person, with doubts and hesitations, even potential weaknesses. More than once, he confesses these doubts: "I'm a liar, I'm a hypocrite, I'm afraid of everything."
