Ben - Hur A TALE OF THE CHRIST

After a few years of separation, Judah Ben-Hur sees again his childhood friend Messala, who comes back from Rome. Judah is a Jew and a son of a prince of Jerusalem who lived in Herod's day, while Messala belongs to a noble family in Rome. But Judah is disappointed to learn that Messala is no longer the friend he once knew. Messala mocks the Jews and now speaks with sarcasm and contempt. Judah realizes they can no longer be friends.

Later that day, as Judah watches the parade from the streets, he accidentally dislodges a tile from the roof from where he is standing. It hits the procurator and Judah is pointed out by Messala as the assassin. He is arrested and is sent to the galleys; his mother and sister are led out of the house. All of their possessions, including their palatial house, are taken by the Romans. Judah vows to take revenge on Messala.

Years later, Judah becomes one of the oarsmen of Quintus Arrius. Arrius has heard his story and decides to adopt him, making him heir to all his properties. Five years pass and Judah decides to return to Antioch and search for his mother and sister. There, he meets again Messala-his nemesis.

Judah’s story runs parallel to the story of Jesus Christ both coming from the same region and of similar age, both experiencing betrayal, conviction, and redemption.
