I do recommend going to one of these performances if you can. It is an incredible experience being in amongst the action, and seeing the whole of the life of Jesus in one day helps to understand more about the chronology of events and the political events taking place at the same time. The tension between the Jews and the Romans comes to life and the context for the events of Holy Week makes more sense. I have wonderful memories of sitting under one of the huge eucalyptus trees being part of the feeding of the 5000.
