3 pages

By Roy Wiegand.

Caiaphas, the regal high priest of the temple, is ready to have this madman named Jesus arrested. He has just made a deal with a grimy little man claiming to be a disciple who, for 30 pieces of silver, will identify Jesus with a kiss. Caiaphas plans for the arrest to take place before dawn in adherence with the law which forbids the taking of prisoners during the daylight hours of Passover. Caiaphas says, "He must be found, he must be arrested, he must be sentenced, and he must be put to death."

It's What Jesus Deserves ... Isn't It?

Jesus has been constant trouble and Caiaphas, the high priest, is glad he helped sentence Him to death. But still, Caiaphas wonders ... where did the son of a carpenter get such knowledge and wisdom? And how could He always display such love? Could it be that He really is ... ? Caiaphas rejects the very thought. Otherwise it would mean he murdered the Son of God!

For Women Play by

Three 5-7 minute skits that will enhance any woman's program.

God has gifted women to be keepers of the hearth where friends and family gather for food and conversation in the traditional center of the home.

This is just what you need if you are doing a study on the "fruits of the Spirit": love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control.
