Newsweek Cover Story: Who Killed Jesus?

The cover story in this week's Newsweek is on The Passion of the Christ. The main article is the most detailed description of the film I have seen so far, with some intelligent analysis of its relationship to the Gospels and questions about anti-Semitism:

Who Killed Jesus?
Mel Gibson's powerful but troubling new movie, 'The Passion of the Christ,' is reviving one of the most explosive questions ever. What history tells us about Jesus' last hours, the world in which he lived, anti-Semitism, Scripture and the nature of faith itself
By Jon Meacham

Well worth a read; more anon.
