Do you wonder what the stories in the Bible would look like from the viewpoint of those who were there? If so, then this collection of thirteen first-person narratives and readers’ theater presentations spotlighting a variety of New Testament characters — both familiar and not so well-known — will give you a new perspective on the scriptural witness. After all, while the experience of these people is rooted in the distant past, we still relate to the same fears, joys, and motivations as they did. By listening in on these characters as they converse with themselves, these creative pieces provide an intimate look at their humanity and experience of the Good News, which in turn enables us to better understand our lives and our faith.
This volume provides material for a variety of seasons and settings — they’re perfect for church drama groups, homiletical source material, and for inspiring devotional reading. And an introductory chapter addresses performance issues (including whether or not to use costumes) as well as how to use this format to develop your own material.
Some of the intriguing presentations include:
* Herod — The First Christmas Grinch (Matthew 2:1-12)
* Leaving Egypt For Home (Matthew 2:19-23)
* My Name Is Levi (Mark 2:13-17)
* Kneeling Before Him (Luke 10:38-42)
* Just A Jar Of Water (Luke 22:7-13)
* Rock The Boat! (John 21)
