Corrected entry: Near the end, a prisoner crucified with Jesus is seen taken down dead. Roman custom at the time would not have allowed this. The dead were left up to rot as an act of deterrent to others.

Correction: Roman custom was to leave bodies on the cross. However, it was against the Jewish Law to leave a body on the cross on the Sabbath Day. Palestine was the only place bodies were removed from the cross!

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Roman soldiers are whipping Jesus and they take him off the post, there are no marks on his back, then the shot changes to when they are putting the red cloth on him, he has two huge gashes on his shoulder, but his chest doesn't have any gashes. Then in the scene right after that, he is walking towards Pilate, and he has many marks on his chest.
