SUMMARY: Jesus' mooks Peter and James find the cave
he was "buried" in (he faked his death) and set him free. Jesus, after an
unsentimental reunion with his apostle goombahs, including a
formerly very doubtful Thomas, he learns that Judas was the one
who betrayed him to the Romans... and so Jesus, ever the
vengeful Godfather, orders a hit on his former friend.

EPISODE TWO (11/23/13)
SUMMARY: Jesus cures his disciples' headache with a
Eucharist involving the Alka Seltzer and Coffee of Christ.
Barty, who is blackballed at the palace, is sent out to find
Tommy, who was sent to talk to the Romans. Soon, Tommy brings news that
they have a meeting with Pilate tomorrow at 3, that Barty has been
arrested by the Romans... and that he's
learned where Judas is hiding out. Jesus sends Mark to
kill Judas, and orders that he make it look like a suicide...
and sends James to watch Mark, who is just out of rehab.
However, when they arrive at Judas' place, Mark begins doing
coke to "get tight" and then decides to screw what the boss
wants... he's going to offer Judas a choice: hanging, or a
bullet to the head. Judas rambles on philosophically in
order to stave off the inevitable, but eventually a coked-up
Mark kills Judas with a knife and bites off his ear. James
unwisely calls in to report on what's happening... and the Roman
cops have tapped the call.

never thought you'd see ME again!"

EPISODE EIGHT (7/5/14)
- PLAYOFFS WEEK 4!
SUMMARY: Jesus just needs to carry out three more hits to
avenge his death and take over the Empire... but his plot to
kill Barabbas by planting a bomb in his chariot goes awry:
Barabbas survives, Moe Greene's leg is maimed - further inflamin
his enmity for Jesus and his crew - and the Centurion who is
killed in the blast becomes a martyr for the Romans, turning
public opinion against Jesus. For his part, Jesus has had
plastic surgery to change his face as part of his plan, and now
must deal not only with the botched hit, but with Mary
Magdalene's announcement that she's pregnant. Meanwhile,
the Roman Emperor and Pontius Pilate agree that the only threat
remaining comes from Mark - who is in rehab and therefore
harmless. However, Mark receives a vision of God - a
sultry woman who tells him that his boss needs him, and that he
must "get tight," leave the hospital where he's convalescing,
and come to protect his boss.
