Product Overview
Synopsis: PILATE and the Roman legate VETURIUS look on worriedly as JESUS is celebrated as the new messiah in Jerusalem. JUDAS is delighted by the reception Jesus is receiving, and quickly wants to win over the influential merchants to the cause which would make Jesus the king and the liberator of the Jews. The next day Jesus drives all the moneylenders out of the temple and incurs the full wrath of the city's merchants and high family is arrested when an attempt to assassinate Pilate failed. During the Last Supper Judas thinks of a solution: if he delivers Jesus up to the Romans, his family will be freed and Jesus himself would have to prove that he really has divine power. But Judas' plan doesn't work: Although his family is freed, Judas waits in vain for Jesus to demonstrate his power. Instead he dies on the Cross. In utter despair, Judas commits suicide.
