Roman, huh?

That's a Tribune's ring?


Have you come far?

Now! Cmon!


Thirty years the Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar

has ruled the wasteland of Judea and its people.

Barabbas! Barabbas!

As Tribune to Prefect Ponpiu Pilate,

my task is to keep order in a city

that is distinct in unrest.

The Jews pray to their single God, Yahweh,

for the arrival of the mystical Messiah.

As their religious leader,

the Sanhedrin try to keep an uneasy peace.

But each day creates more zealous

to challenge the rule of Rome,

and bring freedom.

Instead, we bring them death.

Kill them all!

Position! Throw!

Hold this line!


We have Barabbas!

Bring him!

I know how this ends.

Then tell Yahweh's you are coming,

courtesy of Mars.

It must pain you to know that

the one true God, chooses us over you.

But not today, he didn't.

But when the Messiah comes,

Rome will be nothing!

Until then...

Tribune, Pilate summons you!

I'm yet sticky with filth.

No matter, there's more trouble.

Come on! Come on!

Did you win?

I was told to hurry.

In truth, you're well dressed for this job.

Whats happened?


Every hot headed and holy fool

in Judea was here stirring havoc.

Some mystic, one of the following vibe making

waves to the Sanhedrin decided to put him down.

He sent a rather mob here,

screaming for his blood,

because he claims to be their Messiah.

I had to crucify him.

Don't give me that look!

I've had enough already.

I had a situation Tribune,

something that you don't seem to understand.

Soon the Emperor arrives here,

and he expects to find, order.


What does he want of me, Prefect?

Take control out there and finish things.

This is gone long enough.

And do this Nazarene a small mercy.

Break his legs.

Clavius, meet your new aide.

Lucius Ticonius Enius.

His father's a friend.

It's an honor, Tribune.

What sky is this?

Lost out the sunshine.

Woh! Easy.

Poseidon is unhappy.

Some God is.

I hate it when they scream, I hate it.

It could last for days up there.

Get back now!

Centurion, how goes this?

It's a strange day, Tribune.

It was just a tremor.

Not that. Too much dark in here.

But this King...something's wrong.

The mob feel it.

Light a few.

Show him the rod.

The Nazarene, is he dead now?

After only six hours.

It can't be! Has he spoken?

Has he spoken?

Just before the tremor.

He said, 'it's finished'.

See that it is.


Won't be long now.

It's the Nazarene's mother.


Use the pulley.

Get that woman's to shut up!

Keep her quiet!

Feel unlucky today?

This man was innocent.

Still yourself now.

Go on! And tell the Prefect is done.

Disperse! It's over!

Go on home!

Move! Leave now! Leave!

That's it! Let it go. That's it, let it go.

You're free now.


That's it, let it go.

Take the pliers!

Never killed a king before.

Where is it!

Tribune, I come from Pilate.

Please read this.

You are Arimathea?

I am.

Your own family tomb.

What's he to you?

The Sabbath is almost here.

I only need two hours.


He's yours.

Nicodemus hurry!


Leave him.


Go find your centurion.

These will bury him.

Please Tribune.

Gently! Gently!

Come, Clavius, soak this day away.

Fill his cup. Keep it filled.

What do you desire?

A meal, a massage, a girl?

Just this.

You're young...

a night's rest, you will do it all again.

Your service is valued, Tribune.

I rely on it.

So, ask pardon if today I seemed heft.

Don't matter.

Is the Nazarene entombed?

I pushed the stone against it myself.

It was huge stone.

Many a lives.

Transpired with him.
