Script

HUMAN CARRYING PUPPET LAMB COMES ON STAGE AND STARTS WALKING ACROSS IT. PART WAY OVER HE MEETS ANOTHER PERSON. IT'S THE LAMB'S REACTION TO THE CONVERSATION GOING ON OVER HIS HEAD THAT CAN MAKE OR BREAK THIS ONE.

1: SAY! THAT'S A CUTE LITTLE LAMB

2: (HAS LAMB ON HIS ARM) HE IS. HE'S NEARLY PERFECT. NOT A BLEMISH ON HIM. HIS MOTHER HAD TRIPLETS AND COULD ONLY COUNT TO TWO, SO WE'VE RAISED HIM LIKE OUR OWN CHILD.

1: SO YOU LOVE THE LITTLE CRITTER.

2: WE SURE DO!

1: SO, WHERE YOU GOING WITH HIM? (SCRATCHES LAMB'S HEAD. LAMB LIKES IT)

2: THE LORD'S BEEN VERY GOOD TO US LATELY. I'M GOING TO THE TEMPLE TO MAKE A SACRIFICE.

(THE LAMB ALERTS AND LOOKS AROUND LIKE IT SENSES SOMETHING IS UP.)

1: (STARTLED) A SACRIFICE AT THE TEMPLE? THE TEMPLE DOESN'T EXIST AND BESIDES, WE NO LONGER HAVE TO MAKE ANIMAL SACRIFICES. (LAMB IS VERY RELIEVED)

2: NO TEMPLE? NO SACRIFICES? BUT WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT SACRIFICES?

1: YOU MEAN IN LEVITICUS?

2: YES. SIN OFFERINGS, THANK OFFERINGS, THERE ARE MORE OFFERINGS THAN I CAN REALLY REMEMBER. WE DON'T HAVE TO OFFER SACRIFICES ANYMORE?

(LAMB AND #1 SHAKE THEIR HEADS)

2: WHY NOT?

1: BECAUSE GOD HAS PROVIDED HIS OWN LAMB.

2: WOW! THAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE PERFECT LAMB. EVEN MORE PERFECT THAN MINE.

(PETS LAMB. LAMB IS NOT SURE IF THIS IS GOOD OR NOT.)

1: GOD'S OWN SON JESUS CHRIST. PERFECT IN EVERY WAY, OFFERED UP AS A SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS, ONCE AND FOR ALL.

2: SO WE DON'T HAVE TO OFFER LAMBS AND GOATS AND PIGEONS AND SUCH.

(#1 SHAKES HIS HEAD NO. LAMB IS VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS.)

2: SO TO FIND THIS FORGIVENESS, WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO?

1: ACCEPT JESUS AS GOD'S SON, THE PERFECT SACRIFICE. THAT HE DIED FOR YOU AND ME AND EVERYONE AND ASK THAT YOUR SINS BE FORGIVEN.

2: THAT'S ALL? (LAMB NODS VEHEMENTLY)

1: THAT'S ALL.

2: THEN COME OVER TO MY HOUSE AND WE CAN TALK ALL THIS OVER. I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO INVITE THIS JESUS INTO MY LIFE. DINNER?"

1: SURE. IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION A PERSON CAN MAKE IN THEIR LIFE. WHAT'S ON THE MENU?

2: HOW ABOUT LAMB CHOPS? (LAMB ALERTS AND LOOKS AROUND.)

1: FRESH?

2: NO. FROZEN. I'VE GOT SOME IN MY FREEZER.

(LAMB RELAXES, VERY RELIEVED AND THEY ALL EXIT TOGETHER.)
