Mas, com o retorno de Messala, um amigo da juventude que agora é o chefe das legiões romanas na cidade, um desentendimento devido a visões políticas divergentes faz com que Messala condene Ben-Hur a viver como escravo em uma galera romana, mesmo sabendo da inocência do ex-amigo. Mas o destino vai dar a Ben-Hur uma oportunidade"
