Storyline

Judas meets Jesus and at first doesn't know what to make of him or whether or not to trust him. A cynical city boy, Judas makes fun of the country bumpkin disciples who follow Jesus but eventually decides to join the band, as well. He and Jesus become good friends, even though they often see things very differently. Ultimately, Judas is convinced that Jesus needs to use his popularity and wonder-working powers to free the Jews from the Romans, and Jesus sees a larger, spritual perspective. As a friend, Judas convinces Jesus to give his disciples his miraculous powers, and he does with good results. Finally, the Jewish leaders spy on Judas and convince him of the greater good of betraying Jesus, in order to save the Jewish people. Judas gets caught between the corrupt leaders, Caiaphus and Pontius Pilate, and Jesus. Written by Anonymous

Did Jesus own his own Surf board?
11 July 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

The reason I ask if Jesus owned his own surf board is because he looked like he was born and raised in Malibu. While Judas has its moments, interesting and original, the movie fails to hold up to anything serious. In the shadow of The Passion, the networks only real motive to show this movie was for profit. Judas has moments of stunning visual achievement and great conversations with Pilate and Jesus and Judas toward the end of the movie. Still, I found myself laughing at some of the things Jesus said. And forgive me for being a Catholic, but, even the Pope changed the channel when this movie was playing. Jesus asks Judas: "What do you say?" when asking if he wants Judas to be one of his followers. "What do you say?" Who are we marketing with words like that? If you want to make a serious movie, use serious dialogue. Enough said.
