Roman centurion Clavius knows Jesus is dead. He saw the man’s death with his own eyes. But now Jesus’ body has gone missing from the sealed tomb, and his followers claim their rabbi has risen from the dead. Now, under orders from Pontius Pilate, Clavius must find the truth behind the rumors, because Jesus can’t be alive . . . can he?
