GOSPEL OF JOHN
BY BRAD SHERRILL
MARCH 17, 2013; 6:30 PM.
Doors open at 6:00pm.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, He was God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men......(John 1:1-4)
It took nearly five months for actor Brad Sherrill to memorize all 20,000 words of The Gospel of John. He had plans to perform it just once at his home church in Atlanta, but has now presented it over 600 times since 2001 in churches and professional theaters across the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Ireland.
With a dozen very simple props used in a variety of ways, Sherrill transforms the gospel into a captivating drama presenting the entire story of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. An estimated 180,000 people worldwide have now experienced a rare opportunity to see and hear an entire gospel presented live in this dramatic way.
We invite you to join us and Brad Sherrill in the retelling of Christ's life, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us"...(John 1: 14).
