Gospel of John

Analysis

Gospel of John Sex, Drugs and Violence Rating

Exactly how violent and steamy is this story?

PG

  • Peter cuts off a guy's ear.
  • Jesus is beaten and whipped. 
  • Jesus is hung on a cross to die.

The Gospel of John doesn't actually give us any of the gruesome details, but the young'uns might be a little squeamish about the thought of having nails driven through their hands and feet. And by young'uns, we mean us.
