King´s Herodes Song

The scene of king Herodes is a perfect music hall, with lights, girls, and dancing steps.
The king introduces himself and tries to tempt Jesus.
He asks him to walk over the swimming pool, to convert de water in wine.
He asked him to prove his divinity.
In the close up in which de actor approaches his face to Jesus, we can´t avoid to relate him with a snake. That´s the clear intention, I guess.
Jesus stays in silence, he doesn´t fall in the temptation, like in the gospels.
Lucas says in (23;8): And when Herod sae Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him os a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done bye him.
After the colour ,the action and the mockery, in this scence, the calm came in "Everything´s alright" by Mary Magdalene.
