In 29 AD, when the then civilized world was dominated by two superior power, the Persian and Roman empires, the United Palestine, including Galilee, Samaria and Judea, was under the rule of the Roman empire. All the cultural, social, and economic aspects of the life of the Hebrews were facing decay and destruction. In this turbulent times, the corruption was common whether in the court of Herod, the ruler who was set by Rome, or in the halls of the glorious temple of Solomon. In this situation, Yahya bin Zakaria, the prophet, furious and annoyed, announces the surrender of God's wrath to his people. Later Yahya is martyred, and Jesus Christ becomes the God's next prophet to convey his message after a period of seclusion in the wilderness and encountering the evil temptations. The priests are fearful of Jesus, so they try to distract him in the way of his mission. With the miracle of Jesus, in which a dead young man returns to life, the Romans start to call him God and a group of Jews who have converted to him, call him the Son of God. This claim happens to start fighting and bloodshed among the groups of people.
