Called to the priesthood by God, Fr. James Martin was startled to get a very different kind of call one evening in 2004: a phone call from actor Sam Rockwell. Rockwell had been cast in the part of Judas Iscariot in an Off-Broadway play where Judas was on trial for his crime of betraying Jesus; would Martin be willing to offer some theological insights? Martin gladly obliged, and within weeks playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis and other members of the cast began to dialogue with Martin about a host of spiritual issues that weighed on their minds: Can we believe the Bible? What was Jesus' mission? What is sin? Does hell exist? Is anyone beyond God's forgiveness? A Jesuit Off-Broadway recounts Fr. Martin's thrilling six months with the LAByrinth Theater Company, as it created and performed The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, which had a sold-out five-week run in New York. As the occasionally profane and worldly playwright, director, and actors struggled to understand theological issues and ideas, they strove to convey them in an artistically convincing way to a largely secular audience. Through it all, Martin learned lessons about theater and life, about how the sacred and the secular aren't always that far apart, and how questions often tell us more than answers do.
Many of us have questions about the Bible: Can we believe the Bible? What was Jesus' mission? What is sin? Does hell exist? Is anyone beyond God's forgiveness? In "A Jesuit Off-Brodway," James Martin, SJ, answers these questions about the Bible, and other big questions about life, as he serves as a theological advisor to the cast of "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot."
Grab a front-row seat to Fr. Martin's six months with the LAByrinth Theater Company and see first-hand what it's like to share the faith with a largely secular group of people . . . and discover, along with Martin, that the sacred and the secular aren't always that far apart.
