Additional Details


Fun Stuff

From Barabbas (2014/I)
Joseph of Arimethea: He's stirring up trouble. The Romans will consider this a first sign of rebellion.
Caiaphus: They'll kill us all. We have to get this "Jesus" out of the city. Get rid of him somehow. A man like that cannot be allowed to live.
