The film The Last Temptation of Christ (1988, Martin Scorsese), based on a 1953 novel by Nikos Kazantzakis, shows Jesus as a robust man who is as energetic and dynamic as he is charismatic. He is not meek and mild and self-diffident as Jesus is often portrayed to be in films. He is here shown as one who sees good and bad, right and wrong, and acts assertively, one might say aggressively, for the side of good and right.
