The Lamb of God

© 2001 E. E. Perry

Cast of Characters:

Lamb -- a lamb, of course.
Harvey -- a boy puppet.

( The scene opens with Lamb coming on stage. He is reading a Bible. )

Lamb ( to self ): Oh, my! Oh, no! This is terrible!

( Harvey comes on stage. )

Harvey: Hi, Lamb!

Lamb ( startled; drops Bible ): Uuuugggghhhh!

Harvey ( trying to approach him ): Lamb, I didn't mean to startle you.

Lamb ( putting up hooves to fight ): Stay back! Get away from me!

Harvey ( continues toward him ): What's wrong with you?

Lamb ( picks up baseball bat ): Get back! I may be a lamb, but I know how to use this thing!

Harvey: What's gotten into you? Put that thing down!

Lamb: No way! I've been reading in the Bible! You'll never sacrifice this lamb!

Harvey: Lamb, there are no more animal sacrifices.

Lamb: Sure, that's what they said about the shearing thing...."Don't worry, Lamb, it's just a little haircut."

Harvey: I'm serious Lamb, Jesus made it so we don't have to make animal sacrifices to God.

Lamb: Say what!!!

Harvey: Jesus was God's Son, who came down from heaven. He lived the perfect life, and that made the Jewish people mad. God allowed them to kill Jesus, and He became the sacrifice for all our sins. That's why He is called the Lamb of God.

Lamb: Are you sure?

Harvey: Yes.

Lamb: Wait! You said Jesus died! How come I hear you in church singing (sings) "He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today...."

Harvey: That's right! God raised Jesus from the dead three days later, and now he is in heaven preparing a place for those who believe.

Lamb: Are you sure?

Harvey: Don't take my word for it. The Bible says in Romans 10:9: "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

Lamb: (putting bat down): Whew! Man, I'm glad Jesus came.

Harvey: Yes, it is good news for all people.

Lamb: And lambs too!
