In her new novel, award-winning author Naomi Alderman imagines the world of Roman-occupied Judea and the fate of a charismatic Jewish preacher named Yehoshuah.
A year after Yehoshuah's death, four people tell their stories - his mother, Miryam; his former friend and follower Iehuda of Qeriot; the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, Caiaphas and the rebel, Bar-Avo.
In today's episode, the High Priest Caiaphas is put under pressure by the Roman Prefect Pilate.
