Movie Info

Explore the origins of one of the Bible's most crushing betrayals as Judas betrays the very man who seeks to free his people from the grip of the Romans. A lower-class wine-seller who resents the brutal treatment of his people by the occupying Romans, Judas Iscariot is ecstatic to learn that a Messiah named Jesus of Nazareth has begun preaching love and peace despite the risk of persecution. Though Jesus rejects physical violence in favor of channeling spiritual energy to solve problems, Judas' reliance on the old ways pits him at odds with the gentle prophet, and when authorities close in on Jesus and his disciples -- Jesus' grim fate on Earth is forever sealed with a kiss.

Critic Reviews for Judas

All Critics (1)

A completely unconvincing Jesus, who looks more like a surfer dude than the Messiah, and a frustratingly uninteresting version of the Gospel.

Audience Reviews for Judas

This TV movie is so brilliantly horrible but the best part is all the unintentional homoerotic moments between Jesus and Judas. If you know me, you know I was cracking up!
