The
movie Risen is about the first forty days following the resurrection of Jesus
Christ.  It is is seen through the eyes
of a Roman soldier who was not a believer of Jesus. He was chosen to explore
the areas surrounding him to find the body of Jesus that miraculously
disappeared.  The movie begins with Clavius who is our protagonist. Pontius
Pilate summons Clavius so that he can explain himself for having to crucify
Jesus of Nazareth. They then attend the crucifixion. Jesus is held on a cross
with a crown of thorns upon his head. There are two other thieves who are being
crucified on their own crosses at the same time as Jesus.  There are many people in attendance at the
crucifixion. After a while, Clavius orders a soldier to end the suffering of
those being crucified. The soldier pierces the side of Jesus as he does this,
the entire Earth shakes. Clavius looks up at Jesus after the chaos comes to an
end and there is a single bloody tear falling from his eye.  Jesus’ body is then brought and placed into a
tomb made of stone. There are two men who are instructed to guard the tomb but
decide to drink wine instead. Closely after, the sealed tomb was tampered with
and the boulder that was closing the tomb was moved.  Upon going into the tomb, Jesus’ body was
gone.  Upon hearing the news, Pontus
Pilate has Clavius begin an expedition to find Jesus’ body. Lucius is given the
task of being Clavius’ right hand man and being his partner for this
expedition.  The search for Jesus’ body
begins with Clavius seeking out and interviewing people who were both close to
and knew Jesus. They have no information on the location of his body and tell
him to find Mary Magdalene. This turns into a chase and ends with her not
having any answers for them. The search for his body continues when they seek
out the guards who were supposed to be guarding the tomb.  One of the guards admits to drinking while
guarding. He also tells Clavius that he saw a blinding light that emerged from
the tomb. Clavius believes that it is a hallucination due to the fact that they
were drinking.  Lucius and Clavius then
go to observe the bodies of those who recently passed away. They find a body
that is not recognizable and returned it to Pontus Pilate. They claimed it was
Jesus. As the movie goes on, Clavius finds himself at a house with Mary
Magdalene, the Disciples, and Jesus himself.  Jesus suddenly disappears like a ghost. The
Disciples leave to begin their journey to Galilee- Clavius joins them.  During the night, Clavius sees Jesus and sits
to speak with him. Clavius breaks off from the Disciples and returns to home.

He is asked if he actually believes in what he saw and in Jesus Christ. Clavius
confirms that he actually believes in Jesus and that something changed in him.
