AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS
AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS:
The Last Words of Jesus
By Margaret Smith
Cast: 6 m, 4 w (2 are nonspeaking), 2 flexible
Script: 14 pages
Jesus’ last words on the cross profoundly changed those who heard them. He continued to teach us how to live even in the final moments of His life as He hung on the cross in the agony of His execution. His lessons of forgiveness for the offender, salvation for the sinner, and trust and love for family and friends guide our daily lives. In this play, each character hears a phrase from Jesus' final utterances and reflects on its importance. Two narrators unify monologues delivered by characters whom Jesus affected during the course of His life. All characters are situated at the foot of the cross on which Jesus suffered and died. When Jesus rises, he has a message of hope for each one and a message for all of us. About thirty minutes.
