In order to capture the power and scope of the story, film clips were created to coincided with the live stage production. The multi-media presentation included cutting edge soundtrack and riveting performances by a forty person ensemble cast.
In February of 2003, Bible Actors Productions premiered their original human video The Mediator at a local youth group. The response was incredible! Since then the seven minute presentation of the Gospel (set to Kutless’ hit Your Touch) has been performed over 60 times.
The drama paints a clear picture of the barrier of sin that separates God and Man and explains, without words, that Jesus sacrificed himself to bridge that gap and bring us back to our Creator.
“For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and man, He is the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all.”
