and I'll set you free.
My mission is here.
Then speak only of religion.
Leave the House of Herod to itself.
I cannot.
For it stands on a foundation of sin.
And I have been ordained
to root out sin,
offer repentance to all
who will listen.
I offer it to you now.
Return to God.
How?
Give up the throne.
No. That I cannot do.
It is my life.
I speak of a life everlasting.
Seek repentance.
I will not give up
the throne.
And I cannot allow you
to preach against me
any longer.
I will place you under guard here
in the palace where
you can do no harm.
Guards.
You will find no peace
in my imprisonment.
Only the Lord can ease
the terrible burden of evil
on your soul.
Take him.
