After crushing a small-scale Zealot insurrection led by Barabbas, Pontius Pilate sends Clavius, a Roman Tribune, to hurry a crucifixion. Clavius endeavors to identify and interrogate Yeshua’s followers, as well as those involved in his execution and cremation, for answers to his absence with the support of his devoted companion Lucius.
Clavius, out of thoughts, returns to a humiliated Roman soldier, now a drunkard, who was expected to protect Yeshua’s cave tomb, and angrily shocks the intoxicated man out of a previously cherished deception. During a foray through a Jewish community, Clavius suddenly meets a revived Yeshua with his disciples in a private residence.
A Roman attack, commanded by Lucius as well as Pilate, approached the structure that Clavius had prevented them from entering that night.

After rejecting Roman polytheism and the god Mars, Clavius accompanies Yeshua and his supporters on a mission to establish the reality of his mortal rejuvenation, in which he interacts with and encounters both Yeshua and the apostle Peter.
Pilate surmises that Clavius has most likely backstabbed him. Thus transmits a group of Roman armies, to follow him and Yeshua. Clavius benefits the devotees in avoiding the Roman search team.
