Finlay Currie Quotes:

Judah Ben-Hur: He gave me water, and the heart to live. What has he done to merit this?
Balthasar: He has taken the world of our sins onto Himself. To this end He said He was born, in that stable, where I first saw Him. For this cause, He came into the world.
Judah Ben-Hur: For this death?
Balthasar: For this beginning.


[first lines]
Balthasar: [narrating] In the Year of our Lord, Judea - for nearly a century - had lain under the mastery of Rome. In the seventh year of the reign of Augustus Caesar, an imperial decree ordered every Judean each to return to his place of birth to be counted and taxed. The converging ways of many of them led to the gates of their capital city, Jerusalem, the troubled heart of their land. The old city was dominated by the fortress of Antonia, the seat of Roman power, and by the great golden temple, the outward sign of an inward and imperishable faith. Even while they obeyed the will of Caesar, the people clung proudly to their ancient heritage, always remembering the promise of their prophets that one day there would be born among them a redeemer to bring them salvation and perfect freedom.


Wheeler, the Mudlark: [asking about going to meet the queen] Are you sure it's all right, sir?
John Brown: What?
Wheeler, the Mudlark: You're a bit sozzled, ain't ya, sir?
John Brown: Sozzled?
Wheeler, the Mudlark: Yes sir, you've been in the bottle a bit, you know?
John Brown: [rises to his feet a bit unsteadily] Only enough to keep off infection, laddie.
