Overview

In twelve plays For broadcasting al monthly intervals. Dorothy L. Sayers drew on material from all four Gospels. keeping the theme of Jesus of Nazareth's divine kingship in focus throughout, while locating him firmly in the social, and political, context of his lime. The first, half cover episodes that precede the final journey to Jerusalem, and the latter half primarily deal with Passion Week themes, It is the simplicity and profundity of Jesus' words in the Fourth Gospel especially dial Savers drew on in her own writing for the "voice" of Jesus "on air." The plays gave her an opportunity to explore the many gospel characters surrounding Jesus, not least, that of Judas. And beyond the utter sorrow of Jesus' death, the king comes into his own in the garden of resurrection.
