Wrong! The movie was voiced in Hebrew, "reconstructed" Aramaic and Latin. The Aramaic language, (related to Hebrew) was widely used in Jesus time, in that region. Koine (common) Greek was also in wide use in the Roman Empire. In fact, the Christian New Testament was first and widely published in Koine Greek. It provides the benchmark, standard text for translations and study. Mel Gibson, a staunch Roman Catholic, chose to shut out Greek from his production. Greek, however, was normally used in Roman government and business. Note that the "titulus" on Jesus' cross, per John 19:20, was in Hebrew (Jewish Aramaic), Latin and Greek. (John was an eye witness.)
