Do you really believe that one man can bear the full burden of sin?
Shelter me, O Lord. I trust in you. In you I take refuge.
No one man can carry this burden, I tell you. It is far too heavy. Saving their souls is too costly. No one. Ever. No. Never.
Father, you can do all things. If it is possible, let this chalice pass from me... But let your will be done, not mine.
Who is your father? Who are you?
What is truth, Claudia? Do you hear it, recognize it when it is spoken?
Yes, I do. Don't you?
How? Can you tell me?
If you will not hear the truth, no one can tell you.
Truth... do you want to know what my truth is, Claudia? I've been putting down rebellions in this rotten outpost for eleven years. If I don't condemn this man I know Caiphas will start a rebellion. If I do condemn him, then his followers may. Either way, there will be bloodshed. Caeser has warned me, Claudia. Warned me twice. He swore that the next time the blood would be mine. That is my truth!
They say you're a king. Where is this kingdom of yours? What line of kings do you descend from? Speak up! You're just the son of some obscure carpenter, no? Some say you're Elijah, but he was carried off to Heaven in a chariot! Why don't you say something? You've been brought here as a blasphemer! What do you say to that? Defend yourself.
I have spoken openly to everyone. I've taught in the temple where we all gathered. Ask those who have heard what I have to say.
Is that how you address the high Priest? With arrogance?
If I have spoken evil, tell me what evil I have said. But if not, why do you hit me?
Yes, we'll listen to those that have heard your blashpemies. Good! Let's hear them!
He cures the sick by magic! With the help of devils! I've seen it. He casts out devils, with the help of devils.
He calls himself the king of the Jews!
No, he calls himself the Son of God! He said he would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days!
Worse! He claims he's the Bread of Life! And if we don't eat his flesh or drink his blood we won't inherit eternal life.
Silence! You're all under this man's spell. Either offer proof of his wrongdoing or be quiet!
This entire proceeding is an outrage. All I've heard from these "witnesses" is mindless contradiction!
