Passion Play reminds me of Easter, and the wonderful promise of the resurrection. While so often we have Christmas plays, it is rare to see Easter plays so I remember fondly the year that both of our children participated in one.
Hi Cathy, I agree. We need more Easter/Passion plays. Here is a link to a description of the one-man play I have been doing for two decades all across the continent: https://davidkitz.ca/centurion.php
This is is something I read every year at Easter. It helps me realize what Christ went through for me. It’s graphic and I shed many tears but I think it’s important for everyone to read and realize how very much he loves us. Knowing he could have called it off at any point and didn’t and died for my sinful self is mind boggling.
Gail, I believe meditating on what Christ suffered and accomplished at the cross is transformational. Nothing changes hearts like a trip to the cross.
4. The movie "The Passion of the Christ" immediately comes to mind. I did not see it, but was told that it was a very graphic movie. Thank you for the chance to win a prize.
Hi Vickie, "The Passion of the Christ" movie can be very difficult to watch. I think this book is a gentler way to make a pilgrimage to the cross and the empty tomb.
When I read Passion Play above, it reminded me of nothing, because I did not know what it meant until I looked it up.
Yes, there is more than one meaning to passion, but in this case it refers to love that is willing to suffer, even to suffer death on a cross.
My favorite Bible movies is The Nativity Story, I really love this story of when Mary said yes to becoming the mother of Jesus our Savior. The Passion of Christ is also a good movie, although it is very sad to see just how Jesus suffered, it really makes a person cry to see just a glimpse of how Jesus must have been suffering.
I agree "The Passion of the Christ" is difficult to watch. My biased opinion is that this book is better.
4. Christ's death on the cross. Watching it reenacted affects one emotionally.
