The Story of Jesus and Us imagines an oral performance of the Gospel by two of the Gospel’s minor characters who also tell their own unusual love story. This is a story told by Mary, sister to Martha, and Clopas, the blind beggar healed by Jesus in John 9. Together, Clopas and Mary weave into their performance of the Gospel the new reality Jesus created which allowed their relationship to flourish. Their performance of the Gospel takes place inside someone’s house in Jerusalem, a couple of years after the end of the Gospel of John. It follows the general outline of the Gospel of John with parts of the Gospel of Luke interwoven within. The audience of this two person play that Mary and Clopas perform is full of people interested in following Jesus.
It includes speculations that tie together different parts of Scripture so as to provide a realistic yet faithful portrait of Jesus and the impact his life, death and resurrection had on the lives and relationships of those with him.
The Story of Jesus and Us is part Bible story, part love story, and part script for a date night! May the love from Jesus spill over into your heart as well!
