Jesus has died on the cross. Against Caiaphas's will, but with Pilate's permission, his corps is not left to rot but buried honorably in the grave of council member Joseph of Arimatea, who always opposed his sentence. Caiaphas wonders if he made the right choice, the disciples hide, most too scared to do anything. When Chist's body is reported missing, the confusion increases. It's settled for the disciples by the resurrected master's appearances.
