In an exclusive interview to be aired today at 10:00 p.m. ET. On ABCNEWS’ Primetime, Mel Gibson told Diane Sawyer that critics of his film, “The Passion of the Christ,” really have a problem with the Gospels.
“Critics who have a problem with me don't really have a problem with me in this film,” Gibson says on the interview, according to ABCNEWS; “They have a problem with the four Gospels. That's where their problem is.”
The accusation that the film will spark anti-Semitism avoids the central point of the film, says Gibson.
“It's about faith, hope, love and forgiveness. That's what this film is about. It's about Christ's sacrifice.”
