The last twelve hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The Garden of Olives is where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. He has been betrayed by Judas Iscariot. Jesus is arrested and taken back within the city walls of Jerusalem. There, the leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy. Jesus is brought before Pontius Pilate for his sentencing. Pilate listens to the accusations leveled at Jesus by the Pharisees and decides to defer to King Herod in deciding the matter of how to persecute Jesus. Herod returns Jesus to Pilate who decides to give the crowd a choice between which prisoner they would rather to see set free - Jesus or Barrabas. They choose Barrabas. Jesus is then handed over to the Roman soldiers and is brutally flagellated. Bloody and unrecognizable, he is brought back before Pilate. Pilate washes his hands of the entire dilemma. Jesus is presented with the cross and is ordered to carry it through the streets of Jerusalem, all the way up to Golgotha. There, Jesus is nailed to the cross where he is left to die.
