This is a narrative of
the story of Jesus, focused on the final years of his life. Jesus is depicted
as an ordinary carpenter, even making the crosses used by the Romans to execute
Jewish revolutionaries. Having steadfastly refused to undertake the mission of
salvation, he eventually decides to submit to divine will.
Up until the
crucifixion, the story develops largely in line with the gospel accounts. But
while he is on the cross, Jesus opens his eyes and sees that he has been
transported to the shade of a tree in blossom; an angel tells him that God has
decided to save him and allow him to live a normal life.
Sometime later, Paul
arrives at Jesus' house and talks to him of the crucifixion, the resurrection
of the Messiah and the new religion. Jesus is infuriated by this and tells him
the truth. Paul leaves, determined to continue his preaching even if it is
founded in falsehood.
Several years later, a
now elderly Jesus comes face to face with his disciples, who accuse him of
betrayal and desertion. It is then he realises that the angel who announced his
salvation from the cross was Satan - the last temptation. At that moment he
opens his eyes and, seeing that he is still on the cross, realizes that it was
nothing more than a dream.
