In Jerusalem, oppressed by the power of Imperial Rome, Ben-Hur, of the Jewish house of Hur, develops a friendship with Messala, a Roman centurion, which turns to enmity when he learns of Messala's egotism and hatred of the Jews; to please the governor, Messala arrests Ben-Hur's entire family when a loose tile accidentally falls from the roof of their house and kills a Roman general. Sentenced as a galley slave and driven into the desert, Ben-Hur meets the Christ, who gives him water and refreshes his spirit; when he saves the life of Arrius, the Roman ship commander, he is adopted by Arrius and becomes popular and wealthy as a charioteer. During a chariot race against Messala, in Rome, Ben-Hur gets revenge against Messala by defeating him. In Jerusalem, where Jesus is crucified, Ben-Hur is recognized by his leprous mother and sister and learns of Jesus' mission to save mankind. With the help of Esther, Ben-Hur's mother and sister are cured and the entire family is reunited

Volume 1 includes: "His New Job," "A Night Out," "The Champion," "In the Park," "A Jitney Elopement" (all 1915)
