Roman Soldiers Confront the Pharisees
April 13, 2001
Chief Pharisee:"Greetings, most noble governor."
Marcus: "Save your breath, old man. I've come to give you a warning. I'm holding you personally responsible for keeping these people under control during your religious festival. ..."
Jacob's Mother: "Jacob! No! Come back here! Jacob!"
Marcus: "Hey! Why you little ..."
Jesus: "Let him be. He's just a child."
Chief Pharisee: "What's the matter, Marcus? Why did you stop? Does that man intimidate you?"
Marcus:"Of course not! It's just that ... well I decided to forget it. What's it to you anyway?"
Chief Pharisee: "Don't you know who that man is?"
Marcus:"No, why should I? What difference does it make?"
Chief Pharisee:"Why he's the talk of all Jerusalem these days. Haven't you heard about the "teacher", the "great healer?"
Marcus:"Oh yes ... So he's the one! Is he one of you?"
Chief Pharisee:"Of course not! He moves alone - or with his own band of rebels. We wouldn't allow him to walk with us."
Marcus:"Yes, I can see why. He seems somehow too smart for that!"
