Jesus, today, tomorrow, forever


Between Acts 4 and 5 of our Passion Play there was a long interval of 41 hours.  Act 4 finished at 3-00 on Good Friday afternoon.

The crowds return to the walled garden which had served as the tomb on Easter Sunday morning at 8-00 to celebrate resurrection.

The tomb is found empty.  The gardeners are at work.  And then through the crowd one of them walks forward.  It is not a gardener.  He calls Mary by name.  And she knows that it is Jesus.  But no one believes her.  They see, they touch and they believe.  “Even more blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing.”  Jesus provided many more God-revealing signs than we had time for in our play.  We’ve told our story so you will believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and in the act of believing have real and eternal life.        

What do you make of life after death and the hope of resurrection?
