Hector is both scared and angry. How could his friends do this to him?The soldiers decide to go to Jerusalem because Pilate is looking for animals. When they camp at Solomon’s Ponds near Bethlehem, the brakes on the wagon fail and Hector is able to escape.

He discovers Pilate’s Aqueduct and follows it thinking it will take him home. But, he ends up at Jerusalem so he has to hide in the garden of Gethsemane. It is Passover and the time of Christ’s arrest, death and resurrection. A little girl named Ruth finds Hector, and tries to help him. Her father is Simon of Cyrene, the one who helps Jesus carry His cross. Cyrene is a city in Northern Africa.Hector witnesses the arrest of Jesus and is surprised that the Baby his grandmother told him about is a grown man.

Later, Hector witnesses the crucifixion and is deeply moved when Jesus forgives the people who are hurting Him. Ruth and her dad decide to help Hector get home, so they come very early on Sunday Morning to get him. On the way to Joppa (a coastal town on the Mediterranean Sea), they meet some people from Emmaus who tell them that Jesus is alive. As the people talk about Jesus, Hector makes a decision.

If he can get back home, he is going to tell his friends that he forgives them because that is what Jesus would do.
