This play examines the death and resurrection of Jesus from the perspective of the frightened, disappointed, doubting and fearful Disciples who had deserted Jesus during the trial and execution, and also from the perspective of the Scribe and Pharisee, who are trying to come to grips with their decision to have Jesus killed.

There is one particular Scripture that I especially wanted to highlight that I have never heard anyone talk about, and I have not seen it in any of the movies that were produced about this historical event.

The tombs broke open, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised. After Jesus’ resurrection, when they had come out of the tombs, they entered the holy city and appeared to many people. (Matthew 27:52-53).

The play ends with a now resurrected Jesus reminding His disciples about the importance of partaking in the communion.
