Made-for-TV retelling of the Biblical story. Judas Iscariot (Johnathon Schaech) is a lowly wine seller with a fiercely rebellious streak. Resentful of the treatment of his people by Roman oppressors, Judas wants revenge. Hearing rumours of a Messiah in their midst, Judas senses the time has come. He seeks out the quietly-spoken prophet Jesus of Nazareth (Jonathan Scarfe) - and commits the ultimate act of betrayal.
