The Lion of Judah is a heart-warming account of the Easterstory as seen through the eyes of a lovable pig (Horace), afaint-hearted horse (Monty), a pedantic rat (Slink), arambling rooster (Drake), a motherly cow (Esmay) and adowntrodden donkey (Jack). This magnificent period piecewith its epic sets is a roller coaster ride of emotions.Enveloped in humor, this quest follows the animals from thestable in Bethlehem to the great temple in Jerusalem andonto the hillside of Calvary as these unlikely heroes try tosave their friend. The journey weaves seamlessly through thebiblical accounts of Palm Sunday, Jesus turning the tablesin the temple, Peter's denial and with a tense,heart-wrenching climax, depicts the crucifixion andresurrection with gentleness and breathtaking beauty. ForJudah, the lamb with the heart of a lion, it is a story ofcourage and faith. For Jack, the disappointed donkey, itbecomes a pivotal voyage of hope. For Horace, the, well thedirty pig, and Drake the ignorant rooster, it is anopportunity to do something inappropriate and get intotrouble.
