BEN-HUR: A Tale of The Christ



‎'BEN-HUR: A Tale of The Christ' is a classic novel written by Lew Wallace. The Novel was published in the United States by Harper and Brothers on November 12, 1880. It's written under the influence of Jesus Christ in the 19th century. For many years this story was considered a Nobel literary work. 'Ben-Hur' is a Hebrew word and means 'Son of white linen.'‎

‎The beginning of the story is as follows. Some shepherds observe a bright star in the sky in the gardens one night of the Roman province of Judea. Mary and Joseph have come to The Judea as part of the calculation stipulated by the state. She had come from Nazareth. She wanted to go to Bethlehem, but Mary was pregnant. Without a place in town, they take shelter in a cave near Bethlehem and have a baby named Jesus. Seven shepherds saw the light descending into the sky. The angels announced the birth of Jesus Christ. Roman Emperor Harrod the Great was furious to know that another king had been born and ordered him to find the child.‎

‎At the same time, a prince was growing up in the Judea province, named Ben-Har. Messala was a childhood friend and the Son of the Roman tax collector. He returned to Judea after studying in Rome for five years. Ben-Har was Yahudi, while Messala was Roman. He had changed after returning from Rome. He had trained in war, and he was a great Mathematician. He was ambitious. Upon returning to Judea, he pressed Benhar to help all the rebellious Jews surrender themselves, but Benhar refused to betray his work-men. After hearing this denial, Mesa told Judah Behr to give a final reply. "You guys decide whether you want to be my friends or an enemy?"‎

A few days later, a parade of Roman soldiers was going through the city, and Judah Ben-Hur's sister watched from the high balcony of her house. Her hand accidentally touched an old tile. Tile fell on the horse of the New Governor of Rome, Who was leading the Roman Parade.

Messala, who had become Ben-Hur's enemy, seized the opportunity and imprisoned Ben-Hur, his sister, and his mother on false charges of intentionally injuring the Roman governor. Ben-Har realized that Messala wanted to punish him without taking any action, so he escaped from prison and reached the Messala's chamber. He asked, 'Why did you accuse my family of false accusations?'‎

‎Masala answered quietly. 'I will teach you a lesson because you refused to help me.'‎

Then, Messala sentenced Ben-Har to death as a slave. Ben-Har was chained to the hands of the other criminals and was pushed into the desert by Messala. As they were walking, starving and thirsty, a quiet man fed the thirsty Ben-har for days. Ben-Har looked into the man's eyes. It was an inescapable love light in his eyes. A Roman soldier then ordered Benhar to push the man who was drinking water, but the Roman soldier himself turned away, seeing the calm and clean face of the water-drinker.

Ben-Har was now pushed into a Roman warship as a slave by them. Ben-Har, along with hundreds of other sailors, had to join the ship's hull. The captain of the ship was The Roman General Arias. The crew was in the middle of the night when pirates struck the Roman ship. Arias had already measured Ben-Har's physical strength. During the struggle, the chains removed to Ben-Har's feet. He had been a slave on the ship for three years, but he wanted to survive the fire of revenge against Mesa. Judah Ben-Har fought against pirates and saved the life of the head of the Roman ship, Arias. In reprisal for Ben-Har's favor, Roman Arias gave Ben-Har the status of his adopted Son.‎

‎Ben-Har had been trained in the arena for five years of hard fighting as a slave. Ben-Har was once again a rich and Roman man. He had not yet recovered from the feeling of vengeance with Mesa. He left Rome to meet Messala. On the way, he met an Arab Sheikh. The Arab Sheikh was fond of horses. He had the best horses, but he didn't win the charity race in Rome every year. "You have the best horses, but you don't have a chariot to run the charity chariot," said Ben-Har, looking at the Arab Sheikh's horse.‎

‎The Arab Sheikh offered to run his chariot, but Ben-Har refused. "I don't have the best way to defeat the Roman Messala charity in Rome," said the Arab Sheikh.‎

‎As soon as Ben-Har heard Messala's name, his eyes lit up. He wanted revenge on Messala. He immediately agreed to participate in the Charity Race in Rome from the Arab Sheikh and started preparing. Benhar, on the other hand, wanted to find his mother and sister. When Messala knew that, he was surprised and decided to kill Ben-Her during the race. Thousands of people gathered in Rome's grand arena to witness the thrilling Charity Race. A Sharp dagger on the axle of his chariot to wrap the wheel of Ben-Har's chariot. The Governor of Rome had come to see the big race with his family and senators. The dangerous charity race that captivated the people started. In a deadly race that could be a hit, Mesasla worked hard to beat Ben-Har, but all the tricks failed. People were stunned to see the horses running in the wind. The chariot of Messala overturned as he was trying to beat Ben-Har. Several chariots passed over him. Messala was wounded, and Ben-Har won.‎

Ben-Har, who had gone to meet the badly injured Messala, asked for his mother and sister. "You can't find your mother and sister for life," said Messala. They still live and suffer as a blood-borne patient. Go, find him yourself. The race is not over yet."

‎She just said Messala died.‎

‎Ben-Har went back to Jerusalem to find his mother and sister. When he was living in Judea, he loved a young woman named Amrah, who worked as a maid. He came to her old house. He finally found his mother and sister living in a cave of blood- filled blood, living a separate life away from the population in a valley of mountains. His mother asked Ben-Har not to touch her body, but Ben-Har hugged her. He brought them out of the camp of the blood-thirsty who was considered untouchable.
