Please add the ending Please add a plot summary
Corrected entry: Near the end, a prisoner crucified with Jesus is seen taken down dead. Roman custom at the time would not have allowed this. The dead were left up to rot as an act of deterrent to others.
Correction: Roman custom was to leave bodies on the cross. However, it was against the Jewish Law to leave a body on the cross on the Sabbath Day. Palestine was the only place bodies were removed from the cross!
Jesus is shown from behind on the cross with large gashes on the backs of his legs. He was flogged across the shoulders and back only at the pillar.
Ian McShane was originally down to play the part of Jesus, and ended up being cast as Judas.
