  1. I’ve had the honor of playing Caiaphas in the “Passion of Christ” performances over the past 10 years, and it is my feeling that this man was a “man of his time”. As a religious and social leader (being a Jew was not just a religion, but a way of life and a race), Caiaphas had a responsibility for not only his people’s religious culture, but their welfare(?) under the Roman political system that held sway over the Middle East at that time. The Christ, appearing when and how he did, posed a threat to the Jewish people ruled and occupied as they were by the Roman empire. Caiaphas’s responsibility to his people/race had to be constantly balanced with their welfare/survival under the secular rule of the Romans. Jesus the Christ, with his HUMAN philosophies, was a threat not only to Rome, but to the established hierarchy (spelled b-e-a-u-r-o-c-r-a-c-y) of the Hebrew faith. Thus, Caiaphas found himself in the unenviable position of having to placate his Roman masters by calling for the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior. One could say that Caiaphas’s action saved us all.

  2. I am glad to hear of the preparations for yet another presentation of this life-changing story. The stage and atmosphere are so unique in Southern Maryland, it is truly a blessing for all who attend and participate. Many times as i have read or preached the gospel after participating for just a few years in the Passion of Christ, my mind returns to the images and words from this Passion Play. I highly commend it to all as a great opportunity to remember once again this story of God’s love for us in His son Jesus Christ.
