Description: On his way to the cross, Jesus is rejected by those he came to save. Lazarus asks Jesus why he dragged him from the peace of death to search for meaning, and Judas complains he was predestined and compelled by God to be the betrayer and yet must be condemned for his act. Christ’s ultimate rejection and resulting loneliness make his crucifixion seem
