DRAMATIC GOSPEL READING
Get some young people to act out this passage from John 1:29-42:
Narrator: The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him.
John: Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptising with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.
Narrator: Then John gave this testimony.
John: I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptise with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptise with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s chosen one.
Narrator: The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. They testified that Jesus was the son of God. When John saw Jesus passing by, he spoke.
John: Look, the Lamb of God!
Narrator: When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following.
Jesus: What do you want?
Andrew and another disciple: Rabbi, where are you staying?
Jesus: Come and you will see.
Narrator: So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon. Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon.
Andrew: We have found the Messiah!
Narrator: …and he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him.
Jesus: You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Cephas (Peter).
