Matthew 25:34-40This is the same passage as the one in yourexam.Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by myFather, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 ForI was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was astranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick andyou visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous willanswer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty andgive you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or nakedand clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 Andthe King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least ofthese my brothers, you did it to me.’
What you need?A Synopsis - This is the part of the task where you explain in simple terms what thestory is about and what will happen. You should: Address the moral lesson that you are working on. What are the details of the story? Who, What, When, Where The conclusion
What you need?A script - Written in each group members book (the whole thing not just yourown lines) This should look like: Introduction: Set the scene, let people know what is going on in the story. It is here that you inform people about the lifestyle and potential issues that might arise with your characters. Complication: This is where the Moral issue comes up. It must connect with your chosen example. Resolution: This is where your characters make the right decision (or the wrong one with the appropriate consequences)
