* HeAlsoDid: In-universe example. In addition to being the Christian messiah, Jesus also invented the modern dinner table.

* YouBastard: The Virgin Mary's unblinking stare (also a HeroicBSOD) directly into the camera over her [[PietaPlagiarism son's corpse]] smacks of this trope. After all, Jesus died for our sins. Minor [[ISeeWhatYouDidThere Easter eggs]] such as the fact that Mel's hands are the ones nailing Jesus to the cross are there to add symbolism for this point.

* TorturePorn: Much time is spend on showing the copious amounts of graphic violence against Jesus in excruciating detail.

Added DiffLines:

* FromBadToWorse: Although the whole plot is a ForegoneConclusion for the viewer, the characters in universe don't know how far it will go or what will happen next. Mary in particular wonders aloud in one scene how much Jesus will endure.

* BilingualBonus: The original plan was to have the entire film in Aramaic with no subtitles at all. As it stands, only lines central to the plot are subtitled, leaving a lot of lines from bystanders and Romans which someone who knows the language can translate themselves. (As a side note a few of the languages are actually wrong, for instance the Roman characters all speak with the modern Ecclesiastic pronunciation, not the historical Classic pronunciation. Furthermore, a Roman and Judean would most likely speak Koine Greek to each other, being the lingua franca of the Mediterranean at the time)

** Noticeable is the absence of Greek, which would have been the common tongue between Romans (especially of the upper class) and the various peoples of the Eastern Mediterranean.
*** Amongst the Romans themselves, Greek was also widely spoken, especially by the learned and the elites, as most of the literature they studied was in Greek.

* QueerPeopleAreFunny: Apparently, judging from the way King Herod and his consorts are portrayed.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Pontius Pilate, who orders the execution of a man he has no reason to believe is anything other than an instigator of dissent with delusions of grandeur.

** The soldier who stabs Jesus with a spear to make sure he's dead is named Cassius. He is better known in Christian tradition as Longinus (thus the spear is the [[PublicDomainArtifact Lance of Longinus]]).
