Making Bible Teaching Three-Dimensional

One of the methods I have employed with great effectiveness in teaching is to reproduce the Biblical environment on the stage. At a recent Good Friday service, rather than just tell them about the events, I placed live costumed actors behind a replica of the Lord’s Table. I left the position where the Lord would sit empty. The actor’s were frozen on the set. They didn’t move or talk. I moved in and out among them,┬ádoing most of the teaching from the position where Jesus would have been sitting. This gave the audience tremendous insight into the Biblical record.
