It's the 19th Year of the reign of Tiberius, Emperor of Rome. In Jerusalem a little known Jewish teacher who we know as Jesus the Christ was crucified by the Romans at the request of the Jewish priests even though he had committed no crime. Present at the crucifixion was a thief who was promised Paradise by the teacher, the centurion who carried out the crucifixion and Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross for the final part of the journey. Who were these three men and how did they come to this place at the same time? We follow Claudius the centurion with his adventures in Spain to his transfer to Judea. Simon the student/teacher from Cyrene to the great library in Alexandria to the royal court of Ethiopia and then Jerusalem. Zacharias the sailor, slave and finally thief. See the events of the day Jesus was crucified through the eyes of these three men.
