ANNA, THE PHARISEE’S DAUGHTER - NOTES – by Tanis Harms

PREMISE:          Jesus’s ministry included
.            reaching out to women and children.
.                 As a young girl, Anna desires to learn,
.            but being a girl, her training is always
.            household-focused.  Whenever she can, she
.            sneaks away to eavesdrop at the boys’
.            Hebrew school, or gets her brother to show
.            her everything he is learning there.
.            Now with the talk of Jesus’s ministry,
.            she only has more questions, which does
.            not sit well with her father, who is
.            a Pharisee in Capernaum.
STYLE:       drama
TOPIC:       salvation, pride, faith
