The Passion Experience (2017)

[Facebook] [Festival FAQ] [Flyer]

Almost everyone knows what a Passion ‘Play’ is. It is a re-enactment of Jesus’ death and resurrection, with an audience observing.  The Passion Experience, on the other hand, is a re-enactment where the audience is immersed in the event itself, participating in it as if they had just arrived in Jerusalem to attend the Jewish Passover.  Even if one is very familiar with the Gospel story, they can expect to gain new appreciation and insights into Jesus’ triumph over sin and death–not as mere articles of faith, but as actual events that occurred in real human history.

The date of the Passion Experience is Saturday, August 5th, 2017.  It will begin (tentatively–as of this writing in March, 2017) around 5 p.m. and last about 3 hours.  It will take place on the grounds of the Athanatos Christian Arts (and Apologetics) festival in Greenwood, WI., which begins on Thursday, August 3rd.  It is FREE to attend the Passion Experience.

People attending the Passion Experience only (ie, not attending the rest of the festival) should plan on arriving several hours early in order to get familiar with the layout of the event, or, if you so desire, get yourself ‘in character’ (ie, bring your own 1st century Jerusalem costumes, etc–OPTIONAL!).
