A Greater Love

5 minutes / 2 characters

Description
Thaddaeus has just returned to Nazareth—five days after the crucifixion of Jesus. For the moment, he is confused and saddened by the death of his Master. His wife, Keren-Happuch, considers this a perfect opportunity to pry her husband loose from what she has seen as a most foolish occupation.

Thaddaeus is a quiet, thoughtful man who chooses his words deliberately; Keren is a woman of abrasive opinion—and thoroughly opposed to the teachings of Christ.

One of our most popular and dynamic sketches, A Greater Love is replete with dramatic tension, exploring the dynamics of a household divided by one member's allegiance to Christ.

Theme
Our love for the Lord must be greater than our love for any other (Matt. 10:37).

Production Notes
This sketch will wake up the audience. Keren is a bitter, spiteful woman who detests everything Jesus represents. A Greater Love packs a lot of intense drama into a short sketch.

Set/Props
None are required; Keren could be given some domestic prop, but it is not necesary.
