“I don’t expect the Union to be dissolved – but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.”

– Abraham Lincoln

Elijah’s fascinating story begins in a divided kingdom. On either side were kings with divided hearts. This was the time of Queen Jezebel, whose royal son once sent messengers to Baal Zebub, the Lord of the Flies in ancient Ekron, seeking advice and medicine. “Is it because there’s no God in Israel that you’re going off to consult Baal Zebub?” asked Elijah.

Get an exclusive look at modern Mount Carmel (via video) as we invite you into the stories of Elijah, Ahab, and Jezebel while standing atop the famous ancient site. And like Elijah’s protégé, Elisha, prepare yourself for a “double portion” of the Spirit.

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)
