Judas Judas Iscariot. Lowly wine seller with a fiercely rebellious streak. Resentful of the treatment of his people by Roman oppressors, Judas wants radical action.

Hearing rumours of a Messiah in their midst, Judas senses the time has come. He seeks out Jesus of Nazareth, the quietly spoken prophet who preaches love, heals the sick and rocks the boat.

Welcomed into his band of disciples, Judas is at once in awe of Jesus. But tensions soon surface. While Jesus draws on spiritual powers and rejects violence, Judas has more physical tactics in mind. This clash of ideals and Judas' simmering jealousy conspire with events. As the authorities close in, Judas is driven to commit the ultimate act of betrayal.

Jesus' fate is sealed with a kiss.

Dramatic and thought-provoking, Judas is a remarkable re-telling of a familiar story from a fresh, new perspective. Judas Iscariot, the would-be revolutionary, is a powerful symbol of human failing — his once-honourable motives devoured by inner torment.
