Drama unfolds before us. Our attention is on the written page; line by line, actors draw us into the story. If we attend a play, our attention turns to center stage where writer's dialog builds a solid presentation act by act. Moviegoers view scene by scene upon the silver screen. Each new vivid sentence or dynamic portrayal by actors moves us, readers or audience, one-step closer to the finale. The story flows, ever building to climax and closure.
Writers prick our inquisitive minds, challenging us with twists and turns in the drama, keeping us eager to learn how the story ends. We expect murder mysteries and action thrillers to surprise and satisfy the Sherlock Holmes or James Bond lurking within; yet many comedies and musicals also catch us off guard, leaving us to shake our heads and mumble, "I never guessed it would end like that!"
The gospel story continues to unfold before gazing eyes. Scriptures give avid readers many clues as to the outcome. The beginning dialog hooked us with "Let there be light (Genesis 1:3a TEV)!" Half way through Bible pages, we met the Great Shepherd in Psalm 23. Intermission temporarily closed the curtains with "May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with everyone (Revelation 22:21 TEV)." We can only imagine God's full power displayed in the final scene. "And this Good News about the kingdom will be preached through the world for a witness to all mankind; and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14 TEV)." Encore, Encore!
