1960: Passion Play
1960: Passion Play

The Passion Play Worthington hosted in 1960 was a pretty big deal. I clipped this ad for two reasons, though:

1. I remember John Wayne as the Centurion in The Greatest Story Ever Told, and

2. I remember one of my favorite Seminary teachers suggesting that the line the Centurion says should likely be read as sarcasm: “Truly this was the son of God.” Honestly? I thought it made a lot more sense that way, given the Centurion was a Roman.
