King Nebuchadnezzar is the proud, Chaldean warrior king of Babylon. Like his father, he was a conqueror, but also a man of ingenuity and wit. Part of the strength of his characterization here is we see a king who not only can rule a kingdom with an iron fist, but who reveals himself to be a thoughtful king, who wants to do right while he retains his might. Nebuchadnezzar does not succumb to the beguiling and sycophantic priesthood, but shows loyalty to those whom have shown him a true strength of character. His personality is nuanced and multi-dimensional. We see him spar with the priests in witty repartee as he admonishes them for their political underhandedness and their disingenuous piety to false gods. We see a proud king who venerates his father’s legacy, a macho king who hunts lions, but we also see a king who can listen to a mere boy’s ideas on how to improve his position as ruler of the land by bringing prosperity to regions well beyond his great city.


the exile king2 
“The Exile” is a three-part film project based on the book of Daniel and the events surrounding remnant Israel’s seventy year exile in Babylon. Following in the tradition of Ben-Hur, this biblical epic fuses together the sub-genres to which “The Passion of the Christ” and “Gladiator” belong. The story carries the gospel message from a unique perspective, the events within it occurring hundreds of years before Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death and resurrection.
