The story tells of the adventures of Judah Ben-Hur, Jewish prince and  merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 1st century. Ben-Hur's  childhood friend Messala arrives back home as an ambitious commanding  officer of the Roman legions. They come to realize how much they have  changed and now hold very different views and aspirations.

During a  military parade a brick falls from the roof of Judah's house and barely  misses the Roman governor. Although Messala knows that they are not  guilty, he condemns the Ben-Hur family. Without trial, Judah is sent to  work until death as a Roman galley slave, his mother and sister are  thrown into prison and all the family property is confiscated. Through  fate and good fortune, Judah survives and manages to return to  Jerusalem, to seek revenge against his one-time friend and redeem his  family.

Running in parallel with Ben-Hur's narrative is the unfolding  story of Jesus, who comes from the same region and is a similar age, mirroring themes  of betrayal, conviction and redemption. Ben-Hur witnesses and is  inspired by the rise of the Christ figure and his following who  challenge Roman tyranny and talk of keys to a greater kingdom.
