Hi, Paul.

I know and accept that He suffered and died in agony for me and my sins (along with everyone else), but I don't need to submit myself to the excruciating (word carefully chosen!) detail.

I don't know..... you KNOW and ACCEPT that He suffered and died for YOU, but you maybe watching a movie of it (movie, Holiwood, make-believe) is more than you can submit yourself to?

Kind of reminds me of an old joke: "Mother, I just cannot stand watching you work so hard over our dinner all by yourself! Please close the kitchen door!!"

Hi, Andrea.

There are lots of unpleasant things I intellectually know and operate on the basis of but don't want to subject myself to. I've never seen "Schindler's List" or "The Killing Fields," either.

I want to. Not sure if the wife does. She seemed reluctant about it tonight.
by James Denison / February 24, 2004 2:39 PM PST

Some church members dropped by and among other things we started talking about the upcoming Passion movie. They seemed very interested in seeing it, but my wife is concerned over the graphic quality. She's always been squeamish when it comes to things like that.

We're strictly renters these days, with the rare "treat" for one of us. When it comes out on video, we'll see. I haven't given it much thought.

It's a story that's been done time and again. The level of violence doesn't add to the appeal.

I sure hope to. Looks like we might have sold our house (we find out by 6pm tonight) to a cash buyer, so we may need to be moved and in North Carolina within the next 3 weeks or so.

I do want to see it though!

I haven't a clue who you are replying to, but please do let us know tomorrow if your "6.00 pm this evening" means that you Did sell your house. Fingers crossed (meaning "good luck").

I liked the area when I was there for a couple of days on vacation not long ago
by Roger NC / February 25, 2004 7:21 AM PST

Didn't spend a lot of time there, it was the first night stop after leaving eastern NC and travelling west. Spent two nights there. Is very close to lots of very beautiful mountain views. And it's not very far from Winston-Salem as far as getting to the 'big city'.

Have several pictures from Mount Pilot on the way there. So much in the area for visiting, what spare time (when you have some spare cash Wink also) can be spent close by for a while.

Hmm I think that's less than two hours from Toni H. also.

Re:I liked the area when I was there for a couple of days on vacation not long ago

Hi Roger,

Yep, I love seeing the mountains, and Pilot Mountain can be seen from Mt. Airy, though it's about 20 miles away. Winston's not bad as far as big cities go, and is close.

Toni is nearby, we tried once to get together while Greg and I were down visiting, but something came up. Maybe we'll have a big NC SE get together if we move!

My realtor says the other folks are getting together this afternoon to sign the papers. They weren't able yesterday when they were supposed to, they got hung up at a hospital in Ann Arbor with their daughter. I'm gonna feel a LOT better once those papers are signed!

I need to get a refresher in Latin. It's been a long time since I used it. The Arameic will be tougher - I guess I'll have to resort to the subtitles.

Greek and Aramaic, mostly.
by Dan McC / February 25, 2004 2:32 AM PST

From what I've read and heard in interviews it was mostly Greek and Aramaic. Apparently, there was a practice of translating the Hebrew into Aramaic during worship.

Huh???
by Bill Osler / February 25, 2004 9:05 AM PST

Granted, the New Testament was originally written in Greek (with a few minor phrases in Aramaic or Hebrew), but my understanding is that the movie was in Aramaic (because that was the language Jesus probably used most of the time for normal conversation) and in Latin (because that was presumably the language used by Pilate and the Roman army).

Hebrew was not used much for day-to-day interaction in Palestine at that time. Greek was the 'Lingua Franca' of much of the empire. I suppose Pilate might have used either Aramaic or Greek for contact with the Jewish populace but unless there is good documentation from somewhere I don't think that use of Latin for the movie was terribly unreasonable.

I've heard the same objection to the use of Latin. You're right that Greek would have been a better choice. It's a fairly academic point, so we'll be hearing debate about it on NPR, no doubt. Wink

I remember they had their 'classics correspondent' on Weekend Edition when 'Gladiator' came out. They discussed the pretty good job of historical accuracy of some of the details of the film.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
