The Play

1 Peter 1:1-2

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.

The Play
Read about the play, the  setting and the time period during which these things took place.
  "My Name is Peter,"  is a combination of acting and story telling.  The purpose of the play is to bring to life the gospel message.  This technique is sometimes referred to as first person expository preaching.  

   The setting is a Roman prison during the first century.  The audience is whisked back in time to witness Peter the Apostle talking to his fellow prisoners.  He is telling them about his time spent with Jesus of Nazareth. 

   Peter recounts many of the miracles and significant moments he experienced with the "Carpenter of Nazareth."  These include the transfiguration, the Last Supper, the Garden of Gethsemane, Peter's denial, the crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and Pentecost.  The drama concludes with Peter's invitation for all to surrender their lives to Christ, moments before he is escorted to his own execution. 

  All the events portrayed in the performance are completely Bible based, and found in the gospels. The actor infers the internal feelings, thoughts, and other reactions, thus personalizing the experience for the viewer.

  The play works well on Sunday morning in  lieu of the sermon, or during an evening as a special presentation to the congregation as well as an outreach to the community.
