Pastor's Lenten Study: The Passion Play

Every Wednesday, from 03/04/2020 to 04/08/2020, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: Gary United Methodist Church, 224 North Main Street, Wheaton, IL US 60187

With few exceptions, the Oberammergau Passion Play has been presented by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany every 10 years since 1634. The play is a staging of Jesus’ Passion story, covering the final period of his life from his visit to Jerusalem to the journey to the cross.

The Passion Play: Living the Story of Christ’s Last Days by Rob Fuquay offers a journey to the origins of the Passion Play and helps readers understand how the play has been used both as a ritual of praise and later as a weapon through its anti-Semitic past. Join Pastor Chris for this Lenten study that will help participants feel a sense of connection to the play while recognizing their own place in the story of Jesus.
