Clavius, a Roman Tribune present at Jesus’ death, is tasked with finding Jesus’ missing body after the resurrection. Although the authority figures of the church and the Roman guard have given him this task to hide the truth, the search turns out to be Clavius’ pathway to God.
Knowing nothing of Jesus, or the Spirit, Clavius is searching for a body, and those he interviews tell him clearly that he is looking in the wrong place. Intending to arrest the Apostles, Clavius first encounters them sitting with Jesus in the flesh, who welcomes him immediately as a brother. Unable to reconcile what he is seeing and feeling in his heart, he is irrevocably drawn to follow the Apostles, and it turns out that his part is essential in God’s plan.
The truth cannot be obscured, for it shines for all to see. No matter how hard it tries to blot out awareness of the Christ, the ego, with all its defenses, simply has no power over the light. Christ is eternal life, and knowing this to be true means that the death of the body is truly meaningless.
