We discussed the importance of Judah Ben-Hur as a character who spans the chasm that separates the Jewish and Roman worlds and, in so doing, prefigures the unity of these two traditions in the new religion of Christianity. In an essay of your own devising, explore Wyler’s depiction of Judah Ben Hur’s story to reflect or prefigure the impact that Christianity will have upon either, or both, Jews and Romans. You may choose to focus upon broad themes, specific scenes, or specific relationships depicted within the film. Be as creative as you like, but be sure to support your ideas with evidence from the film itself.
