Many review questions for the Passion of Christ unit require familiarity with the Gospels. Students should be especially familiar with the Gospels of Matthew [Chapters 21-28] and John [Chapters 12-21], and should browse Luke and Mark as well. For a primary scriptural reference, we recommend either either the Douay Reims or the Revised Standard Version. Both can be found online:

  • The Bible Gateway is a well-known and very usable search engine for Bible passages and includes complete version of over 20 Bibles (Catholic and Protestant).
  • This version of the Douay Reims Bible contains good search algorithms and includes a summary of each chapter, making browsing easier.

A Children's Bible can sometimes help provide a quick review of the Gospels, but may not be sufficient for advanced level questions. The Bible histories listed below are in the public domain.

This second volume of the Children's Bible covers the New Testament, from the Birth of Christ, to the Acts of the Apostles, ending with Stories from the Epistles of Paul, James, and John.

Online Videos of Interest

There are many well done videos having to do with the scriptures. The links provided below are from two series that are student favorites.

It provides a historical setting and outline of the major divisions and then interprets the essential points. The narration is very good and the illustrations are outstanding.

The Good and Evil Series is a one of many good video renditions of Bible stories. It is done in comic book style and is somewhat campy, but very engaging and popular with students. Videos related to the Passion of Christ unit, include the following:
