‘But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.’
I’m pretty excited about this play, mainly because it is based on one of my all time favorite scriptures; Ecclesiastes 12. If you haven’t read that scripture, you need to.
This play is narrated by Old Man Martin. He takes us as far back as the garden of Eden as Eve convinces Adam to bite into the fruit.
Jesus enters and is saddened by what Adam and Eve have done….but He knew what needed to be done to save mankind.
We fast forward 2000 years as Martin and his friends are coming from the movies. They are introduced to Jesus by the Town Pastor and all but one accepts salvation.
Years later, Martin, now married, and his wife has grown to ignore Jesus because of their busy schedule and it hardly seems that anything will ever change. Martin is embarrassed at a big party he throws with the hope of being promoted in his job, as his friends find out that he is a Christian and that he Knows Jesus personally.
Martin goes through an emotional lapse, blaming Jesus for his misfortunes, and eventually, he meets someone from his past who pulls him into temptation and leads him away from Jesus for good.
Vanity highlights the lesser things we sometimes value the most and the important things and people that we often ignore.
