The Born Again Identity

Introduction

Created by Rob Howard and David Guthrie

Summary

Deep in the recesses of a hidden location, in the headquarters of the Jerusalem Intelligence Service 3 (JI3) — a spy organization so top-secret that no Bible scholar has ever known they existed — the operatives are hard at work on one of their most puzzling investigations ever. Surveillance detected a clandestine meeting between a top official — the pharisee Nicodemus — and the much-talked-about teacher and miracle-worker, Jesus of Nazareth. The content of the meeting? A cryptic message about being “born again” (who can do that?), and mysterious promises of “eternal life!” Though often more eager than they are shrewd, the crackerjack team at JI3 will employ all their best spycraft to uncover the truth, deploying a high-tech listening device (two ram’s horns joined with a string), dispatching talking parrots — even planting bugs where necessary (itchy bug-bites will make anybody talk)! As with all Little Big Stuff musicals, our intel reveals songs that even the older kids will love, filled with fun and packed with Gospel truth. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: join the intrepid spies of JI3 to discover if the mysterious encounter between Nicodemus and Jesus was just a simple conversation, or evidence of a supernatural plan to change the world!
