15 to 18 actors needed.  Jesus, followers of Jesus, 2 soldiers (People being healed are the same people who are acting as followers)

Just follow the video.  Followers of Jesus will not wear the beards or need words on shirts.  Have followers of Jesus wear a
variety of colored plain t shirts. Jesus wear a white shirt and 2 soldiers wear black shirts and enter from side of stage. Song is called “What is Love” by Haddaway.   CHWC will provide the sheet to cover Lazarus and Jesus.  (If two soldiers cannot raise Jesus in air that is OK, they can just lay Him down on ground and cover with sheet)

Narrator and Jesus enter.  Jesus stands in middle of stage with back to audience. 

KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL SKIT: Over extension/exaggeration of bobbing heads, enthusiasm of Jesus followers dancing (nothing sexual or over the top) and miracles acteded out

The miracles are:

  1. Healing of blind person                                                                                                                                      
  2. Bringing Lazarus back to life                                                                                                                                   
  3. Healing of lame and paralyzed person who could not walk                                                                               
  4. To replace Jesus doing the “lawnmower” move twice back and forth (only have him do it once).  Add miracle of a deaf person who cannot hear.  This person actions are to approach Jesus with his/her hands cupped around their ear showing they cannot hear.  Jesus touches their ears and then person begins celebrating and bobs head with Jesus.

The students end skit onstage and exit and DO NOT enter crowd as shown in Video.
