Episode 7

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.

When a troublesome young preacher, Jehoshuah, causes chaos in the temple, Caiaphas is forced to hand him over to the Roman prefect, Pilate.
