One of the privileges of having the Bible in our language is the depth to which we can know it. One of the responsibilities is sharing it with others. Enter The Mark Drama. It’s Scripture engagement for English speakers, great for churches and great as outreach.
From The Mark Drama
The idea behind The Mark Drama is this: your church or Christian Union want to share the Bible in a fun, accessible way, and wouldn’t it be super if you got to know the Bible really well while doing it? Drama could be great, but you don’t have a theatre, or actors, or costumes, or props. And you don’t have lots of time to learn it. Do The Mark Drama.
It’s based on The Mark Experience, a book taking you through the book of Mark and splitting it up so that you can memorise it – every story in order. You might not get every word right, but the big picture will be there. Once you’ve done that, a director comes to help you and 14 others learn to act it in just three rehearsals.
The Mark Drama is being used by churches and CUs across the UK and throughout Europe. The result: ‘big audiences, rapt attention, God at work.’ Watch the video below to get a glimpse of one experience of performing it, and have a look at the website, themarkdrama.com.
Wycliffe cares about people loving and using their Bibles, and not just in the UK. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to see people not only holding aloft New Testaments in their language, but opening them, reading them, acting them, telling the stories, studying them, singing them… all over the world! You can get involved by giving, praying, working on the team or by telling others about the need for Bible translation.
