3rd April - Drama "Lazarus Speaks"

7pm the Service of Shadows - Tenebrae - will be held at Jedburgh Old & Trinity Parish Church.

The Tenebrae is a very old Christian service, marking Jesus' death on the cross. It combines drama, music and a deepening darkness as all become aware of how dark the world can be as the Light of the world is extinguished.

This year's drama is "Lazarus Speaks". It finds us at the home of Martha, Mary and Lazarus as they observe the Sabbath the evening of Jesus' crucifixion. They are joined by Jesus' disciple, Simon Peter. Cast members are from Jedburgh, Oxnam and Lilliesleaf.

The congregation has the opportunity to eavesdrop on their reflections of Jesus' life and death. They struggle to come to terms with all that has happened without knowing or understanding what would happen the First Day of the Week.
