The Gospel of Luke

TITUS SABINUS is dying. No matter how much his trusted servant/physician LUKE tries, they both know it’s in vain. But Titus has a secret. One of his servants tells of a religion that heals the sick and raises the dead. A religion hated by the Empire. Titus offers Luke his freedom if he will go and confirm these stories. Luke knows the perils of that place and declines. He may be a slave, but he lives comfortably with the love of his life, PRIMILLA.
One day, while Titus and Luke are away, the future Emperor NERO comes calling. Nero rounds up Rome’s most beautiful servants and ships them to Jerusalem as a gift to his new friend the Jewish King Herod. Titus’ wife ARRECINA protests vehemently, but to no avail. Primilla is whisked away. Luke decides he must save her and takes Titus up on his offer to go to Jerusalem to investigate these people, though it be half-heartedly. Once there he searches desperately for his lost love and slowly learns the truth about a shocking new religious movement.
This is the story of Luke from the New Testament. There is some violence (which can be toned down if necessary) and sexual innuendo (no sex) because I wanted to write this as accurate to the times as possible. The biggest twist of the story involves Titus and the Christian slave girl Cappela. The household believes Titus is involved with her sexually, but it is a ruse only known by Titus and Cappela. She is actually sharing the gospel and slowly converting him. I’ve included this tidbit of information because I’ve had some readers refuse to read further because of the sexual innuendo between the two characters.

The Writer: Wayne Taylor

I love writing about obscure people and events in history. I have three books under my belt and numerous screenplays. My first script finished in the top 10% of the Nicholl Competition and I've been addicted to writing screenplays ever since. A recent short was picked up by an internet radio company and my last horror feature was shopped around by Maria Olsen, Actor/Producer. I'm easy to work with and love to collaborate on projects.
