If you've ever wondered what life was like in Judea/Rome after the Resurrection, during the time of Paul's apostolic journey, you MUST see Silk Road Rising's Paulus ASAP! Written by an Israeli Jewish atheist, Motti Lerner--and produced by our own Malik Gillani and Jamil Khoury--it's just fabulous!!!
"...Jesus and Paul, two radical Jewish visionaries...." is how the program notes describe the two main characters. Then there's an interesting Nero; and a Jewish high priest who gives you a lot to think about; not to mention two startlingly outspoken women of the first century who also have a lot to say! You won't believe how creative and interesting this play is. You have about a month...but it's a busy month coming up, so be sure to make time!!!
