Performances of Bach's Passions, particularly in light of the attention that Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ has received, present an opportunity for Christians and Jews to confront issues of religious intolerance, the role of the arts, and how the arts might, advertently or inadvertently, promote intolerance. We can use our role as musical leaders to engage in this important dialogue on religious intolerance.
