Evidence first century version

  1. 1. EVIDENCE – First Century Version CHARACTERS: 2 PROPS: None - use pantomime COSTUMES: Biblical SETTING: None specified At rise: DEFENDANT is waiting, rises to shake hands when GETOFFANUS arrives. DEFENDANT: Are you Publius Getoffanus? The famous Greek lawyer? GETOFFANUS: I am. DEFENDANT: Is it true that you have had every client of yours acquitted when they have been called before Nero? GETOFFANUS: Yes, that’s true. DEFENDANT: (With relief) Thank God (Panicked) I didn’t mean that. You didn’t hear that. (Looking around in a panic) I hope nobody heard that. (Loudly, in case anyone is listening) It’s just an expression. Thank goodness; that’s what you heard. (Confidentially to GETOFFANUS) You have to help me. I’ve been arrested for being a Christian and I’m afraid I’ll be thrown to the lions. My trial is day after tomorrow. GETOFFANUS: Well, tell me about yourself. How often do you attend the Christians meetings? DEFENDANT: I mean to but I get so busy… trading goods, fixing up the old chariot… I’ve gone maybe once or twice. GETOFFANUS: How long ago? DEFENDANT: It’s been awhile. I really did intend to go more often but things came up. GETOFFANUS: How many people have you converted to Christianity? DEFENDANT: I’m really shy and don’t like to talk about God much. Besides it’s really not safe right now with Nero on the throne. GETOFFANUS: If they searched your house will they find any scriptures or Christian songs. DEFENDANT: No. I’ve been meaning to get some but the shekels only go so far. GETOFFANUS: OK (stands up to leave) I’ll see you in court day after tomorrow. DEFENDANT: (Falling to his knees and pleading) Please, please! Can you get me off? GETOFFANUS:.
