With few exceptions, the Oberammergau Passion Play has been presented by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany every 10 years since 1634. The play is a staging of Jesus' Passion story, covering the final period of his life from his visit to Jerusalem to the journey to the cross..
In his new book and study, The Passion Play: Living the Story of Christs Last Days, author and pastor Rob Fuquay follows the biblical story of the Passion and how it has been experienced through the centuries against the backdrop of this amazing play.
Perfect for Lent, this book and study takes you on a journey to the origins of the Passion Play and helps you understand how the play has been used both as a ritual of praise and later as a weapon through its anti-Semitic past. The book and study help readers and small groups feel a sense of connection to the play while recognizing their own place in the story of Jesus.
The six-session DVD features Rob Fuquay filmed on location in Oberammergau, Germany guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 6-8 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
