(Good Things Utah) – Dr. Joseph Q. Jarvis joined the show and spoke with Nice DeGering about two opportunities for our viewers to attend the 10-day Passion Play Tour through Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in 2022. First off, what’s the Passion Play, and where is it?
About the Tour
This unique tour is centered around the “Passion Play” in Oberammergau, Germany. The story behind this play stretched back nearly 300 years. In 1633, when the Black Plague was sweeping through Europe, the villagers of Oberammergau promised God that if they were spared, they would perform the “Passion of Christ” every 10 years. After being spared, the town has honored this pledge for a decade.
This amazing Passion Play performance follows the last week of Christ’s life from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his trial, crucifixion, and finally, his resurrection and his ascension. The Passion Play, performed on an open-air stage with a majestic mountain background, has been held every 10 years since 1634!
Because of Covid-19, it was canceled in 2020 and has been rescheduled to 2022. This is the first time in 12 years that this play will be performed and that this trip will be offered. There will not be another opportunity to attend this historical performance for 10 more years.
