The film <I>The Passion of the Christ&lt;/I&gt; is discussed in terms of its possible provocative and hidden messages in the service of particular interest groups and political alliances. Violence is viewed as persuasive communication, and the possible psychological effectsof such a search for power and dominance are illustrated.

Die film <I>The Passion of the Christ&lt;/I&gt; word bespreek aan die hand van die moontlikeprovokerende en verborge boodskappe in diens van besondere belangegroepe en politieke alliansies. Geweld word as oorredingskommunikasie beskou, en moontlikesielkundige gevolge van só 'n soeke na mag en dominansie word geïllustreer.
