The 2014 Living Gallery drama, “Looking unto Jesus” by David Schwingle, is set in Jerusalem in 586 BC. Babylon has conquered Judah, destroyed Jerusalem and taken many prisoners. Their kings have failed to protect their nation and turned away from their God, Jehovah. Their priests have practiced idolatry in the Temple. The Jewish remnant long for the perfect king and the perfect priest, the Messiah, to free them from oppression and restore true worship. This Easter, view Christ's sacrifice and triumph through the eyes of the Jewish remnant clinging to the promise of the coming Messiah.
