“They’ve taken Him. We were in the Garden… They arrested Him.”
From shocking beginning to painful end, experience the arrest, trial, and death of Jesus Christ through the eyes of those who were there for each major event, from the disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane, to Simon of Cyrene on the road to Golgotha, to Mary Magdalene at the empty tomb.
The Lamb takes an unflinching look at the story you thought you knew, told by the witnesses in their own words.
1: The Servant
Malchus, a trusted servant of the High Priest, is sent to the Garden of Gethsemane with Judas and a number of soldiers to keep watch on the disciple of the Man the priests despise. He thought he knew what would happen next.

2: The Coward
It wasn’t more than a handful of hours since Simon Peter pledged his allegiance to his Rabbi. Now, he’s hiding in an alley near the High Priest’s home, coming to the sickening realization that he didn’t just abandon his Rabbi and Friend… he also denied ever knowing Him.

3: The Governor
Dealing with a group of bloodthirsty religious leaders wasn’t in Pilate’s plans for the day, but when presented with the supposed ‘King of the Jews’, the Roman governor’s curiosity is piqued. Can he save the Messiah from His own people or will Pilate be forced to bow to a greater plan?

4: The Condemned
Sitting alone in a tavern, Barabbas recounts his life story and what led him to a Roman jail cell, waiting for death — and how he found himself drinking in that tavern rather than hanging on a Roman cross.

5: The Chosen
Simon of Cyrene longs to serve the God he loves, but while in Jerusalem for Passover, he’s horrified when he is forced to carry a condemned Man‘s cross — unaware that he is helping the sacrificial Lamb of God.

7: The Teacher
A highly-esteemed Teacher of the Law, Joseph was too afraid to challenge the Sanhedrin’s decision when they declared an Innocent Man worthy of death. Now Joseph must decide if he will continue to be silent or stand up for what he knows to be true after learning more about Jesus of Nazareth from Nicodemus.
