Following exile, the Israelites rebuild their city and temple. About 500 years later, Jesus, the promised messiah, is born in Bethlehem. He grows up and begins to teach about love, mercy and salvation through him alone. Long story short, He performs many miracles and gains a large following. The Israelites are expecting a messiah who will fight back against the tyrannical Roman empire. Jesus is seen as a threat to the religious leaders and is arrested and crucified.
