Dikatakan antara lain bahwa setelah Tuhan YESUS melihat ibunya, pada penderitaannya itu, dia menjadi kuat ketika YESUS melihat ibunya dia ingat buat apa dia mati.
Ibunya lambang gereja.
Komentar saya, Jadi sebelum melihat ibunya dia lupa untuk apa dia mati. Jadi film ini ingin promosi peranan maria dalam keselamatan secara samar2 tapi diakui oleh sutradaranya sendiri dibawah ini.
Father John Bartunek remarks:
And JESUS looks at Mary, who is his mother but also a symbol of the church, of every Christian, and he is going to suffer for us, so that we know that we are never alone. That he is never going to give up. So he gets that new burst of strength when he sees Mary. When he sees his mother he is reminded of what he is doing this for.
Gerry Matatics contributes the following:
You know, I did not understand when I was Protestant that Mary, as God’s masterpiece, as this first Christian—a Christian before CHRIST, as many of the church fathers called her—is herself the result of CHRIST’s saving work. You know, she wouldn’t be that if he had not done this for her. So when he looks at his mother, he is doing this for her.
Another commentator states:
Because of this bond between JESUS and Mary, not only is this his decision, but it is also her decision too. She gives that little slight, you know, inclination of the head. When he looks at her—just what we just saw about a minute ago. He looks at her, when the eyes lock and she nods, like, “Go ahead, let this be.” She is saying what she said when he first became incarnate in her womb— “Let it be to me according to your word.”
Mel Gibson clarifies:
So be it. Yes, she was cooperating with this, salvific work. I tried to make that obvious.
