Last week, my new film “Last Days of Jesus” got its US premiere on PBS. The response has been overwhelmingly positive!
In a few days, the film gets its Canadian premiere on Vision TV (April 10 at 9pm EST). The broadcast date coincides with Passover night, so this might be appropriate since many consider “The Last Supper” a Passover meal. For my fellow Jews, this is not so good. So, please hit the PVR and watch it after the holiday.
This film is full of revelations, not least of which, is the focus on Lucius Aelius Sejanus, a man most people on this planet have never heard of. And yet, he was running the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion! Why have we never heard of him and how is he implicated in Jesus’ death?
Three years ago, Prof. Barrie Wilson and I published a book titled “The Lost Gospel: Decoding the Ancient Text that Reveals Jesus’ Marriage to Mary the Magdalene” (Pegasus / Canada HarperCollins). It’s based on a 1400-year-old manuscript in the British Library. Much of this encoded Gospel deals with Jesus’ personal life. But one part provides the politics behind the crucifixion. The film is based on this chapter.
In the Gospels, it seems that, from the moment of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem to his crucifixion, only five days elapsed. In contrast, the manuscript in the British Library expands “Holy Week” into six months! It resolves all sorts of unexplained inconsistencies in the Gospels; for example, why was Jesus not arrested by the Romans when he created a riot in the Temple, by overturning the tables of the currency exchangers? Why was he treated like a political hot potato, passed from the Temple High Priest, to the Roman-appointed Jewish ruler, to the Roman governor himself… and back again? If Jesus wasn’t arrested when he caused trouble, why was he arrested when he caused none? Our book reveals the high-level Roman politics that surround Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.
And now… the movie based on the book!

“The greatest story ever told” will now be told in a way that it’s never been told before.
