Product Description

Recognize your own place in the story and Passion of Jesus.

Jesus’ Passion story is presented each Lent in countless churches every year. But one play presented by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, in Bavaria, Germany, may be one of the longest-running performance of all. Staged every ten years since 1634, the play makes an impact not only on the villagers who portray the characters but on all who see it as well. In The Passion Play, Rob Fuquay follows the biblical story of the Passion and shows how this amazing play has been used both as a ritual of praise and later as a weapon through its anti-Semitic past.

In Session 1, Rob Fuquay introduces the town of Oberammergau, Germany, and their 400-year history of performing a Passion Play every ten years. Fuquay explains how the tradition began as the result of a vow to ward off the plague, and continues today as a vibrant part of the town’s identity.
