Clavius: I have seen two things which cannot reconcile: A man dead without question, and that same man alive again. I pursue Him, the Nazarene, to ferret the truth.
Pilate: Your ambition is noticed. Where do you hope it will lead?
Clavius: Position. Power.
Pilate: Which brings?
Clavius: Wealth. A good family. Someday, a place in the country.
Pilate: Where you'll find?
Clavius: An end to travail. A day without death. Peace.
Pilate: All that for peace? Is there no other way?
