Blue Gospel Scripts is a nonprofit community of musicians & actors committed to staging the entirety of Scripture by combining blues/Gospel music, spoken word, and videos from Biblical sites. Donations help cover our production costs, and a portion of each donation helps sponsor students at New Life School in India (children of the Durgapur brothel).

"Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."

– The Prophet Amos / Martin Luther King, Jr.

Jonah’s journey is a whale of a tale. Discover why his version of a “happy ending” differed from God’s. With original music by Dave LeMieux.

Compare the stories of three famous prophets in ancient Israel and Judah. Elisha spoke with a “double portion” of God’s spirit and grew from mentee to master – God worked miracles through his life and death. Jonah suffered the consequences of disobedience and mercilessness. And Amos is the “social justice prophet.”

Dive into Jonah’s port city, Joppa (modern Jaffa), via video footage shot on location. See ships coming and going and people fishing… much like in the time of Jonah – the one that got away.

FAQs

  • A multimedia stage production, about 90 minutes long
  • No traditional sermon – tons of Biblical content
  • Excellence in performance from musicians and speakers
  • “Blue Gospel” songs which enhance the story and sometimes alter perspective through exposition
  • Video of pertinent Biblical locations and on-screen interviews with Israeli tour guides and other relevant experts
  • Monologues with heart, depth, and humor
  • To leave with a fresher understanding of God’s actions throughout history and the timeless, urgent implications of the Good News.
  • Blue Gospel Scripts is best suited for middle school through early retirement. We especially encourage young adults (25 & under) to attend!
  • “America can be proud of many things: our innovation, generosity, and entrepreneurial spirit are unsurpassed. Yet when it comes to our nation understanding one of the greatest gifts ever given to humanity – the Bible – we are moving from dumb to dumber… and it’s no laughing matter.” – Ed Stetzer
  • “[We] revere the Bible – but, by and large, [we] don’t read it. And because [we] don’t read it, [we] have become a nation of Biblical illiterates.”– Gallup & Castelli
  • There are 52 episodes. Presenting one every 3 weeks will take us through the entire Bible in 3 years (the amount of time Paul spent in the desert preparing for ministry, and the amount of time Jesus spent in active public ministry).
  • We need to present each episode once before we can move to Phase 2… every 3 weeks helps us get there faster (every month would take 4 years).
  • We think it’s a good amount of time to chew on the huge amount of Scripture in each Script and not be overwhelmed but be able to remember the thread from one Script to the next.
  • For now, we’re putting up clips of each performance the Monday after the show in the “Previous Episodes” section – click here.
  • After we complete the first cycle (in July 2022), we’ll start again, but this time, film the live performance of each Script.
  • Click here to watch a 20-minute sample of how the final finished video library might look (with post-production graphics to add key elements from the screen)
