Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 26, 1970 Play At Oberammergau is Always Controversial By DAVID I'OUNG TN another week I h c Ober- ammcrgiiu Passion Play will bo complete for another decade. Since the terrible plague of 1G33 the community and village of Obcrammergau, Germany, have performed a religious pageant that has be- come a nuillimilUon dollar business. Tills year nearly 100 performances have been given before a total audience of some people. Considering the response from this country, U> Oberammergau Passion Pla; is performer! by Germans lo. an American audience! Vis itors from the United States made up the largest non-Euro pean bloc. It is really quite difficult to appraise the impact a n d in fluence of the play. The cnor mous stage (with a portion outdoors and unprotected' gives the production nearly sta- dium proportions. Individual actors are almost lost by space and distance. Yet the multiple crowd scenes, complete racing children, horses with and birds, develops into moments of high emotion. The appear- ances of Jesus in the temple, the trial before Pilate and the Crucifixion are forcefully sup- ported by chorus and orches- tra. When you realize that the entire cast is made up of local townspeople who have other things to do for a living in the next eight or nine years, you gain n higher appreciation of CENTRAl CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 Illh SI. 5.

Johnson, founde and general director of the In ernalional Biblical Baptis 'ellowship, will arrive in Leth ridge Sept. 28 to commence a eries of meetings which wil un through Oct. 6. A native of Castor, Alberta Rev. Johnson took his theologi ?al training at the Berean ible College, Calgary, 'and the oronto Baptist Seminary, Tor nto. After serving in. pastor tes in Alberta he travelled ex ensively in western Canada nd visited eastern U.S.A., ii full-time evangelistic minis. y. In 1956 he accepted a call 5 the pastorate of the Bombay aptist Church, Bombay, In- ja, where he served for 3% ears. Shortly after arriving in ndia he offered part-time eological training to Indian inisterial students, and in 57 in Bangalore, India, found- d a Bible college to train men md women for Christian ser- ce. Mr. Johnson will preach each gilt at the Hamilton School ditorium, 4lh Ave. and 15th rect, South, Lethbridge. The blic is invited to attend. was used a hundred years earlier. The basic complaint by both Christians and Jews lias been the slirill tone of the play in dealing with the temple aulhorilics and the Jew- ish nation. Many observers have felt that Jesus and Peter and the other followers seem to be the good guys and the or- dinary citizens of Israel (he bad guys screaming for blood. Writers of (he play have per- mitted some unjustified, mob- baiting vocabulary to surface unjustified by biblical text or the tradition of the times. Scholars can argue long and [oud about the text. Modifica- tions have occurred and revi- sions will probably be made Before 19BO rolls around. What must be clear in Christian and Jewish thought is the fact that anti-Semitic overtones are not ntended. As the statement of Vatican II was adopted on the relations of the Christian Church to non-Christian reli- _ions, it bears directly on this point: The Jewish authorities and hose who followed Iheir lead iressed for the death of Christ; :till, what happened in His 'assion cannot be charged against all the Jews of today. FalJitT Max Bertl, writing in the English textbook of the play, adds: "Jesus Christ took His moth- er from among Jewish people, had a small group of faithful followers from the Jewish peo- ple around the Cross, gathered around Him men from the Jewish people, who Jater suf- fered pain and death for His sake. Others of the Jewish peo- ple met in front of Pilate's courtroom demainding the death of Jesus with the cry, Crucify Who could and should see in these the whole Jewish people." I think the play is authentic.
