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

Bullplop
8 March 2004 | by (Washington Township, NJ) – See all my reviews

This made for TV flick is bullplop....just pure bullplop....

They made up stuff left and right for this one, not to mention horrible acting....The dialogue is awful. When Pilate says "Jesus better stay out of town," I cracked up laughing. You can't take this seriously. Pilate, Claudia, and Caiphous conspiring....dude, it didn't happen that way! It baffles me that people protest a beautiful true to the Bible story as the Passion of the Christ, yet let this go when it is truely changing how it happened. For the love of God, literally, how can someone make a film like this. Go see The Passion of the Christ, not this crap. I can't even write a full scale review because it's so bad
