Three years after the Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth, rumors that he is a prophet who has risen from the dead, are inciting people to rebel against their Roman rulers.
In an attempt to control the riots, the Roman Emperor Tiberius sends Taurus, a loyal Roman officer to Judea to seek Jesus or his missing body and refute the story.
Taurus soon finds himself restrained in his investigation by Governor Pontius Pilate (who is anxious to keep the last moments of Jesus’ Calvary from becoming public domain) and becomes involved in a labyrinth of passion and faith.
