|Object:||A short script for six puppets|
Read from the Bible:
This puppet skit is lightly based on a parable told by Jesus called the good Samaritan, you can find the parable in Luke 10:25-37.
Man from Jericho: (whistling) Oh what a great day for a walk to Jerusalem. (two robbers mug him, slamming him to the ground )
ROBBER #1: aha ! I’ll take his wallet, you hold him down
Robber #2: duh, ok boss, I’ll hold him down yes I will.
Robber #1: Hey, he ain’t got no wallet, all he has is a bag of gummy worms.
Robber #2: Gummy worms, woo hooo!! I luv gummy worms boss, can I have some please hah can I have some boss,? GUMMY WORMS ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!
Robber #1: BE QUIETTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!! How are we gonna pay for a hotel in Jerusalem with a bag of gummy worms?
Robber #2 That’s easy boss, I will hug them and squeeze them and keep them warm, and make sure that the gummy worms are safe , you can count on me boss , you can count on me boss, I won’t let these gummy worms go until we get them in the hands of the inn keeper.
Robber #1: The inn keeper won’t take gummy worms for a room, awww... never mind let’s go.
Robber #2: OK Boss whatever you say, can I have the red gummy worms boss ?
Robber #1: I’ll give you the red gummy worms , here, take 'em! (starts hitting him with the bag of worms)
(A Priest is coming down the road)
Priest: Oh my, what a mess, these people will sleep anywhere nowadays, I’ll have to go to the other side of the road tsk, tsk cheerio old chap, have a nice sleep and all that. (snorts)
Levite: Yikes, looks like someone has been robbed and beaten up, I wish I had the time to help him, but I’ve got a very important meeting to get to with the elders of the church, we’re going to the big gladiator match. I’ll say a prayer for you my friend.
(A Samaritan man walks by)
Samaritan: Oh noooo, are you alright? Here let me put some bactine on you, and bandage your wounds, hold on I’ll call 911 for help. We’ll take you to the hospital and I’ll pay the bill, you poor man .
After Jesus told the parable he asked the expert in the law, which of the three men who passed by was a neighbor to the man who was robbed?
Who do you think was the neighbor?
