Are you looking for something unique to do next weekend to celebrate the risen Lord during Easter? Well, gather the family together to enjoy Jesus, a live theatrical production from our friends at Sight & Sound Theatres. Anyone who has ever visited their huge theaters (as I have a few times), either in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, or Branson, Missouri, knows firsthand how spectacular these productions are. With live animals, original music and lyrics, stunning props, and a massive cast, Sight & Sound Theatres pull you into their biblical accounts. And their production of Jesus is coming as a live pay-per-view event for one night only, April 2, 2021 (with recorded encores on April 3 and 4).
Follow the Gospel narrative as Jesus calls his disciples, heals the sick, raises the dead, changes lives, angers the religious leaders, and is crucified, resurrected, ascends, and the church is born.
With your family or friends, follow the Gospel narrative as Jesus calls his disciples, heals the sick, raises the dead, changes lives, angers the religious leaders, and is crucified, resurrected, ascends, and the church is born. Sight & Sound does an excellent job staying consistent with the Scriptures and exalting Christ as Lord. (Of course, be aware that due to the nature of a theatrical production, Sight & Sound Theatre took artistic license in certain places, including adding details that are not recorded in Scripture or combining various accounts at different times to fit more events from Christ’s life into the production—but they still honor Scripture!)
Here is a trailer for the live show that gives you an idea of what the livestream will be like:
Of course, if you are within driving distance of Branson, Missouri, you can purchase tickets to Jesus and enjoy it live in their remarkable theater now through December 31, 2021.
With the timing of this nationwide event being Easter weekend, your friends and family, even if they don’t attend church, may be willing to see this film or go to the Branson theater to enjoy it live. I encourage you to invite them to see it. It may just spark gospel-centered conversations! Register today at Sight-Sound.tv/jesus-live.
And don’t forget, you can also join us for our Answers Easter Weekend event, April 2–4, at the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum in northern Kentucky. Enjoy live speakers, concerts, and more—and it’s all included with your daily admission (and children ten and under visit free). Get all the details at AnswersEaster.com.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
