|THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. JOHN|
|A ONE MAN PORTRAYAL BY
"When Alexander walked on the stage,
he was John and I was his captive audience immediately."
"I loved your strong composure as Jesus, the wonderment
expressed by the storyteller, and the variety of emotions reflected
by the other voices. I feel that I learned more about the Book of
John ... indeed, about the Gospel, in just those couple of hours
than in years of reading!"
"Your performance in
the Upper Room was so beautiful ... I felt as though I were right
there as one of 'them'."
|THE NATURE OF THE FOURTH GOSPEL|
The Fourth Gospel, more so than its three companion Gospels,
has a very purposeful order and structure. In this Gospel Jesus performs seven
major signs (translated as miracles). Each sign is associated with an important
aspect of Jesus' teaching and is intended as a proof of the truth of His message.
Jesus also makes seven declarations of I am, each of these also being fundamental
to the revelation of Christ.
The Gospel falls naturally into two parts,
leading to its portrayal in two acts. The first part may be described as Jesus'
message to the world at large and the world's rejection of it. The second part
may be described as Jesus' expounding His message more deeply to His disciples
(in the longest Last Supper scene in any of the Gospels) followed by His trial,
crucifixion, and resurrection.
