, (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- Trinity Broadcasting Networkâs Holy Land Experience will be in its most colorful and dramatic element over the next week as believers young and old gear up for what is the most important week of the Church Calendar: Easter Week. From Palm Sunday to Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, all the way to Easter SundayâResurrection Morningâ every inch of the Holy Land Experience park will be ablaze with continuous worship and celebration as actors, singers, musicians, speakers, staffâand guestsâcommemorate the suffering, death, and glorious resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
âEaster has always been an important week for us here at the Holy Land Experience,â said Paul Crouch Jr., TBNâs Chief of Staff and President of Holy Land Experience. âWe plan, practice, rehearse, and prepare for this week all year long for one reason: we are celebrating the very foundation of our Christian faith. Thereâs a real sense of reverence and expectancy during the entire week. Youâll never forget the experience.â
This year Holy Land Experience has added some very special presentations and experiences to its line-up of memorable and life-changing programs, including:
Follow Me: The Road to Resurrection. This powerful presentation is designed to draw guests closer to the steps of Christ, following his ministry, trial, death, and victorious resurrection. Follow Me: The Road to Resurrection is a truly memorable experience. The Wedding at Cana. This visit to the town of Cana has guests joining a young bride and groom as they take their solemn vows under the canopy. Combining compelling drama, energized dancing, and original music, The Wedding at Cana is a beautiful depiction of the marriage that marked the beginning of the ministry of Jesus Christ.
The Last Adam. Holy Land Experienceâs original Broadway-style musical returns bigger and better than ever! Last year packed audiences were blessed and amazed at the concert version of The Last Adam. This year the powerful musical returns as a fully staged, fully costumed, full-length production! The Last Adam is the powerful story of manâs fall to sin and Godâs plan for redemption, and features all original, show stopping songs and the largest cast ever assembled on the HLE stage!
In addition to these exclusive special programs, guests of Holy Land Experience will enjoy the dramatizations and programs that have thrilled visitors for years:
Behold the Lamb Passion Drama. One of the favorites at Holy Land Experience during Easter Week, this powerful re-enactment depicts the love and sacrifice of Jesusâ death, burial, and resurrection. It includes moving depictions of Christâs betrayal and arrest in the garden, his path along the Via Dolorosa, his sorrowful crucifixion at Calvary, and His glorious resurrection. Filled with stirring music and heart-stopping action, Behold the Lamb puts HLE guests in the middle of the most amazing event in all of human history.
The Ministry of Jesus. Guests experience in person the Word Made Flesh, watching as the Master heals the sick and ministers to those in need. This touching and heartwarming drama powerfully brings the Gospels to life.
Centurion. This impacting re-enactment tells the story of one Roman soldierâs journey to save his servant from certain death. In his desperation he must turn to the Jewish Messiah for help. Presented on the steps of the Great Temple, Centurion is a powerful, dynamic musical with a message of salvation for all people.
Jesus the Messiah. Set against the backdrop of the Temple during Passover, Jesus the Messiah offers a dramatic look into the life of Christ and His mission. Remember Me: Communion with Christ. HLE guests are ushered back to the place and time when Jesus and his followers ate their last meal together, sharing in the bread and the cup as Jesus leads them through the significance of His sacrifice. An unforgettable Easter season service.
âThe sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the Holy Land Experience is something weâve created for the whole family,â said Paul Crouch Jr. âItâs inspirational, itâs educational, itâs challengingâand itâs unforgettable. And we think Easter Week is one of the best times for individuals, families, and groups to be here.â
