                                               A STAGE-READING PREMIERE
                                               THE INQUIRY: A STORY OF THE PASSION OF JESUS
                                               SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2 PM
                                               The son of the High Priest leads an inquiry about a charismatic, young Rabbi. It turns into a desperate
                                               effort to save his life and the lives of many other Jews from a Roman death-threat of a mass crucifixion.
                                               Written by Rev. Robert R. Smith, an Episcopal priest - in part, as a rebuttal to Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion’
                                               - this new drama depicts that there was a Roman threat against a portion of the Jewish people, and that
                                               the Jewish leaders attempted to save all lives, including the life of Jesus. Based upon persuasive evidence
                                               from Jewish, Greek and Christian texts, this play is compelling theater for all people regardless of faith,
                                               with a revealing new look at an ancient and controversial story.
                                               Talk-back with Rev. Smith after the performance. A collation will follow the event.
