Reply to "COMPLETE LESSON SET: Jesus Heals 10 Lepers from St. John Lutheran"

Script for Puppet Musical

Parts: Narrator (could be the teacher or guide); 10 leper puppets; Jesus puppet

The story begins with the narrator speaking—the puppets are not visible at this time.

Narrator: Our story comes from the Bible in the book of Luke. Ten lepers stand outside the village [10 leper puppets appear with “leprosy” faces showing]. When they see Jesus [Jesus puppet appears], they cry out “Jesus, master, have pity on us”. Jesus replies “Go, show yourselves to the priest”.

Entire cast: Sings verse 1 of the “10 Little Lepers” song. [leper puppets move away from the Jesus puppet—they spin the puppet so that the “healthy” faces shows and then disappear; Jesus puppet remains].

Narrator: Ten lepers were healed by Jesus. However, nine of the lepers never came back to thank Jesus. I wonder why?

Leper Puppets 1-9: Each puppet (with healthy face) pops up one-by-one to sing his excuse. After singing its line, the puppet again disappears.

Entire Cast: sings verse two of “10 little Lepers”.

Narrator: Only one of the men returned to give thanks to Jesus [puppet 10—with healthy face-- appears].

Puppet 10: He sings his line and continues to stand by Jesus.

Narrator: Jesus said: Were not all ten healed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner? Rise and go, your faith has made you well. You are now a part of God’s family. [Jesus puppet and leper 10 puppet both exit the stage]
