The Passion of the Christ is one of the greatest films of all time. If you’re a believer, it serves as a cinematic Stations of the Cross; an experiential work of pure art. In it’s wake, all faith-based film making seems tepid by comparison.

Although, the film was immediately embroiled in controversy, The Passion of the Christ received 3 Academy Award nominations. 20 years onward, it has stood the test of time. The film has become a modern classic. In my mind, it’s up there with movies like: The Last of the Mohicans, Braveheart (Mel Gibson), and Dances with Wolves.

John Debney’s Oscar nominated music is beautifully haunting. Resurrection is final piece.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across 2 pages. I recommend this for intermediate guitar players and up. You’ll have to be very comfortable with barre chords.

At 1:39, this arrangement is definitely an etude: a short, technical music composition. I love playing etudes as they’re sophisticated — but without the time investment.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Resurrection is one long passage without repeats.

My tuning for this piece is one whole step down. From low to high: D G C F A D. However, you can just as easily play it in standard tuning.
