Underneath the Lintel

Saw a play called Underneath the Lintel on saturday, starring Richard Schiff from the West Wing. It was a monologue, but really good. Really an outstanding performance. He plays a dutch librarian who, through a library book 113 years overdue left in the overnight box, discovers evidence of the existence of 'the Wandering Jew'. The wandering jew was a cobbler, who on the day of Jesus' crucifixion, told him to move on when he fell onto his shop doorstep, because he was afraid of the Roman soldiers. Jesus said he would move on, but that the cobbler would "tarry no more until i come again". So the cobbler was destined to never sit or rest again until Jesus comes again.

 The interesting point was that if he finds the wandering Jew, then he will have proof that God exists. But not only that, he will have proof that God is really the god of the old testament; jealous, vindictive and unforgiving. In the final stages of the play, he speaks of living life in defiance of god.
