Deborah: If a centurion ordered a legionnaire to go into battle, would he not go?
Marcus: Hadassah wasn't a soldier.
Deborah: Wasn't she? Rome builds armies to take land and people captive, to expand the boundaries of the Empire to the farthest reaches of the known world. But Hadassah was a soldier in another kind of army, one that fights a spiritual battle to free the human heart. And in that war, God's will prevails.
Marcus: She lost her battle.
Deborah. You're here.
