[JESUS] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 30-35]
Jesus is lodging with followers of the Way who run a house for the needy. He insists on sitting up late into the night waiting for someone he is sure will come.
[NICODEMUS] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 45-60]
Nicodemus is a member of Sanhedrin, the Jewish ruling council. He is a teacher of the law who thinks he knows what truth is, until the rumors of Jesus begin to circulate. Tormented by doubts, but afraid of the ridicule of his fellow Sanhedrin, Nicodemus sets out in the night to find Jesus and learn the truth about him for himself.
[BROTHER] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 20-30]
Brother runs the house for the needy along with his two sisters. He sees to Jesus’ needs, while trying to understand why he, the Messiah, does not simply heal all the people in the shelter or miraculously change their circumstances.
[OLDER SISTER] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Older Sister is calmly thoughtful and caring. She runs the house for the needy along with her younger brother and sister. She soaks in Jesus’ words, while trying to understand why he, the Messiah, does not simply heal all the people in the shelter or miraculously change their circumstances.
[YOUNGER SISTER] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-30]
Younger Sister is dedicated to her work, efficient, and a worrier. She helps her sister and brother in the house for the needy. She wishes Jesus would just heal all the people in the shelter or miraculously change their circumstances and be done with it; instead of visit and do nothing but wait.
[MEMBERS OF THE SANDEDRIN] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-70] [BACKGROUND ACTORS]
Jewish ruling council members who are inflamed over Jesus’ teaching and argue amongst themselves.
[JEWS] [GENDER: MALE/FEMALE] [AGE: 0-90] [BACKGROUND ACTORS]
