In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. And the Word was God…And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth: we have beheld his glory... (John 1:1,14)

This Christmas, experience the Gospel as never before!

The Gospel of John, conceived and performed by award-winning Broadway veteran Ken Jennings (Sweeney Todd, Grand Hotel, Side Show) and directed by John Pietrowski.

Jennings brings the Gospel powerfully to life in a thrilling 90-minute solo performance.“I memorized this first as a prayer, not as a play,” said Ken.

“Memorizing The Gospel of John was a spiritual practice during a difficult time in my life. I’ve always had an affinity for John, which seems to be a truly firsthand narrative by a man who was actually there.”

St. John’s Gospel is breathtakingly poetic, containing soaring theology, yet it is filled from start to finish with eyewitness details that came from John’s life with Jesus. This written testimony from John’s personal experience has been proclaimed all over the world for millennia. Ken will tell it to audiences as if for the first time, as it was originally told by the Beloved Disciple – so that they too may have a personal encounter with Jesus during this Advent-Christmas season.
