Unlike movies and other films, this film focuses on Jesus played by Jess Rafiñan; His arrest, torture and death. " Taltal" takes us through Jesus’ Life, His march to Jerusalem, and all of the miracles He performed along the way. His followers multiply, and so do His critics. He threatens those in power, not only the Jewish High Priest led by Caiaphas played by Elmer Cataluña and Annas played by Steve Madrid and with the Council of Judges, the Sanhedrin - a sort of " supreme court" - that operated in Israel around the time of Jesus. That during the period when the Sanhedrin existed, other nations ruled over Israel. But to the degree that the Jews were allowed to govern themselves, it was the Sanhedrin that held the greatest power. This body of leaders had seventy-one members and carried out its business in Jerusalem. This term is used twenty-two times in the New Testament. The group that put Jesus on trial with the appearance of the three most famous priest Gamaliel, Archaelus, Nathaniel played by Jose Mariano Valderama, Jaypee Veloso and Baldwin Garrucho.
