The canal mind, prompted by selfish and negative desires, experiences the operation of an inner consciousness, which thwarts evil passions and promotes good noble aspirations. The drunkard is turned from his life of dissipation to one of honest effort. The sloven are awakened to a realization of their utter hopelessness. Everywhere the presence of a divine power is perceptible. The evil in a drunkard's home is banished by the thought of Christ, who appears as the man of Nazareth. The tempter at the threshold of the idle rich is thwarted and the Christ Man, by his presence, drives home conviction of guilt as the woman scorns her lover to remain true to the absent husband. Innocence is not permitted to be victimized by the lust of the flesh as the quiet little voice of conscience, aroused by the proximity of the man of sorrows, averts a tragedy. The "Thirteen Club," a social organization devoting its energies to the promulgation of higher ideals, is unwittingly the guest of a stranger, who turns out to be Christ. As they gather at the banquet table to discuss their experiences they dissolve into Christ and the Apostles at the Last Supper, after a renowned painting by the celebrated Leonardo da Vinci. The picture concludes with the gathering at the Sea of Galilee, where Christ is seen walking on the water. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
