Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' movies, gets to play a character named Lucius in this film.


* ExactWords: Bartholomew makes a deal with Clavius that he will be let go if he tells the Romans where to find Yeshua's disciples. He makes sure Clavius [[IGaveMyWord gives his word]] that he will be freed before he tells him [[spoiler: "Everywhere". Cut to Bartholomew being released.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Bartholomew is scarcely mentioned outside the obligatory list of Twelve Apostle names in the Gospels, here he is the first of the disciples Clavius meets and gives him insight into just who Yeshua's followers are.


Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Events that the Bible describes as explicitly supernatural aren't highlighted as such. The darkness that covers the sky during Yeshua's death is just the day being cloudy, and it's not like earthquakes are unheard of in those parts. Yeshua's resurrection is unseen, because the guards supposed to be watching over him were drunk and couldn't be sure of what they saw. [[spoiler:Clavius' encounter with the risen Yeshua, however, firmly puts everything in perspective as the works of the divine.]]

* AllDesertsHaveCacti: Prickly pears are seen growing all around Pilate's mansion. Prickly pears DO grow in the Middle East, and their fruit is highly favored, but they were introduced from the Americas, meaning they would not have been present in the first century AD.

* AnachronismStew: A minor one regarding names - Jesus is called the period-appropriate Yeshua but other Biblical characters like Mary Magdalene and Peter are called by their modern English names.
