What if Judas hadn't been tempted to take those 12 pieces of silver? Well, we
wouldn't have history divided into BC and AD so early and art would never have
been enhanced by the 'The Last Supper'. On more serious terms, Lord Jesus' sacrifice
established the principles on which Christianity is based and it is heartening
to see devout Christians reinforcing the message of the Lord through media like
'Soul-Paul' is a play depicting the importance of Christianity. A Vinod Kumar directs the play and intends that the audience be conveyed a strong religious message.
The motif of the play "Soul-Paul" goes like this: Long ago there was a cruel king named Nero who hated Christians. One day he orders his General, Seleucus, to look out for people who were praying Jesus and punish them. Seleucus starts searching for Christians and one day come across Stephen, an ardent believer in Jesus.
Stephen used to indulge in preaching about Jesus and Christianity. In spite of Seleucus' warnings Stephen doesn't stop his acts, and is stoned to death upon the orders of the king. A few years later when King Nero goes riding into the jungle, there is a sudden sandstorm. The king falls and looses his eyesight. All of a sudden he hears someone calling his name and realizes that the He is none other than Lord Jesus. He requests Jesus to pardon him for his mistakes, but Jesus vanishes without answering him. Since then the blind king is a changed man and starts preaching about Jesus and Christianity.
One day Seleucus finds his king in a remote village preaching gospels and is stunned. He asks Nero to discontinue such 'heinous' acts. The King doesn't heed Seleucus' words. Enraged, Seleucus orders the huge gathering to stone the blind king to death. The king dies. The moral is to not indulge in wrongdoing, for you have to repay one day, despite your repentance.
