The New York Post gave largely scathing reviews to Mel Gibson’s new movie about Jesus. The tabloid acquired a rough-cut of Gibson’s controversial “The Passion of Christ,” which is due to be released in February, and showed it to a handful of viewers including a rabbi, a priest and a theologian. The Post’s film critic, Lou Lumenick, said the $30 million film depicts Jews as “bloodthirsty zealots.”
