Ben-Hur Synopsis

Cuando Messala, el amigo de la infancia de Ben-Hur, regresa a Judea adoctrinado por las ensenanzas romanas, se burla cruelmente de las creencias judias de Ben-Hur. Messala esta trabajando para Gratus, el nuevo gobernador romano, quien ha planeado un desfile inaugural por las calles de la ciudad. A medida que Ben-Hur observa el desarrollo de la escena desde el techo de su palacio, accidentalmente desaloja una baldosa suelta de su casa, que cae y golpea al lider. Messala, viendo una oportunidad para socavar a su antiguo amigo, se asegura de que Ben-Hur sea duramente condenado sin derecho a juicio, y que su madre y su hermana tambien sean encarceladas injustamente. Enviado a las galeras a vivir sus dias como un esclavo, Ben-Hur hace un voto de un dia regresar y buscar la venganza. Pero como Ben-Hur se convierte en seguidor de un carpintero que el cree que va a hacer guerra contra los romanos, pronto aprende que la venganza terrenal no es el camino de Cristo.When Judah Ben-Hur's childhood friend Messala returns to Judea indoctrinated by Roman teachings, he cruelly mocks Judah's Jewish beliefs. Messala is working for the new Roman governor, Gratus, who has planned an inaugural parade through the city streets. As Judah watches the scene unfold from his palace rooftop, he accidentally dislodges a loose tile from his house, which hits the leader. Messala, seeing an opportunity to undercut his former friend, ensures that Ben-Hur is harshly sentenced without a trial and that his mother and sister are unjustly imprisoned. Sent to the galleys to live out his days as a slave, Judah vows to one day return and seek his revenge. But as Ben-Hur becomes a follower of a carpenter whom he believes will make war against the Romans, he soon learns that earthly revenge is not the way of Christ.
