Jesus: If I could touch every stone, if I could breathe on every branch, they'd get up and follow me. So what's wrong with you?

Jesus: You're here to trick me.
The Cobra/Satan: Trick you? To love and care for a woman, to have a family? This is a trick? Why are you trying to save the world? Aren't your own sins enough for you? What arrogance to think you can save the world. The world doesn't have to be saved: save yourself. Find love.
Jesus: I have love.

Jesus: I'm not gonna leave here until you speak to me.

Jesus: Is that you?

Jesus: The pain begins. It slides up my back and just before it gets to my eyes, it digs in its claws.

Pontius Pilate: It's one thing to want to change the way people live... but you want to change how they think, how they feel.
Jesus: All I'm saying is that change will happen with love, not with killing.
Pontius Pilate: Either way, it's dangerous. It's against Rome. It's against the way the world is. And killing or loving, it's all the same. It simply doesn't matter how you want to change things. We don't want them changed.

Jesus: I said Love! I didn't say Death.
