Abraham & Isaac
D: Dummy (Mannequin American)
-this script is not verbatim, just main idea-
V: Want to tell a story about Abraham and Isaaac.
D: you are?
V: I am what?
D: you’re sick!
V: no, no, no Isaac, “I- Saac” that was the name of Abraham’s son in Gen. 22 we read about this test God put them thru.
D: NOPE!, Hate test, my grades we under water!
D: “Below Sea Level!”
V: come on, we can even have fun retelling the story.
D: Can I be Isaac?
V: Sure, so one day God called Abraham…
D: (Shouts) ABRAHAM ! ! ! ! ! ! !
V: What r u doing ur Isaac!
D: yeah, AND sound effects.
V: ok, so Abraham said, here am I God and God said, I want you to take your only son Isaac, who you love, and offer him up as a burn offering.
D: Wait a tick, what is a burnt offering? They burner up all their cash?
V:no they would take something valuable like a valuable bird or a lamb and they would kill it, and burn it as an offering up to God.
D:ohhhh, wait, WHAT?! Ya mean I am suppose to let him kill me?
V: now wait, let me just finish the story…
D: that is what I am afraid of, a big finish!
V: so early the next morning they got 2 servants to help, they cut wood for the burnt offering, and saddled up their donkey.
D: YEHAW, High hoe Silver, (Sing out the lone ranger theme)
V: on the third day they finally saw the mountain in the distance that God had told Abraham to go to. He told his servants to wait here with the donkey while he and Isaac go on. He told them, “we will worship and then come back.”
Then Abraham took the wood and placed it on his son Isaac’s back.
D: he’s not only going to kill me, he is making me carry the wood for the fire?!?! This is brutally sick!!!! (Hang head low)
V: yeah Isaac carried the wood and Abraham carried the fire and THE KNIFE
D: UGH! Then Isaac drop the wood, turned and ran for his life!
D: I sure would have!!!
V:No, no, they walked together and Isaac looked up and said to his father, Abraham,
And Abraham said, “Yes my son?”
Isaac said, “We have the fire
V: we have the wood”
V:but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?
And Abraham said, “God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”
When they reached the place God had told him about, on the top of the mountain Abraham built an altar and arranged the wood on it then he tied Isaac up (Bound him)
D: this is bound to get real ugly folks!
V: then he laid Isaac on the altar on top of the wood and he reached out his hand and took out his knife and raised it above his head.
V: Then (Dummy hang head low and away as if not wanting to look, scared) THEN…
The angel of The Lord called out to him from heaven.
D: Abraham! ! ! ! ! ! (Just as at beginning of skit)
V: do it again
D: Abraham ! ! ! !! !
V: Abraham said, “here am i.” Then the angel of The Lord said, “ do not lay a hand on the boy, DO not do anything to him. NOW I know you fear God because you have not withheld from me your son, your ONLY son.
D: oh (not excited, then with great excitement) Wait, what? You mean I get to live?
D: YIPPY ! ! ! !
V: then Abraham looked up and saw a ram stuck in the thicket (thorn bushed) He went over and took the Ram and sacrifice it as a burnt offering instead of his son.
D: WOW! So God did provide, there was a Ram caught in the bushes? That was no coincident ! ! ! God did that ! ! !
V: YEP! And that is not the only time God provided.
Ya know God offered up His only son and His only son was put to death in our place.
Jesus carried the wood
Jesus was the Lamb
D: but he didn’t stay dead….
V: nope he rose from the dead and because of that if we believe in Him and ask His Spirit to come live in us we too will rise from the dead, our souls will go to heaven!
D: I want to go to heaven!
V: Ro. 5: 8 But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.
(explain and do altar call)
Then for final conclusion dummy keeps saying right toe and interrupting. Final you ask dummy,
V: “why are you always saying right toe when I am trying to talk at the end, and put you in the case after our time together?”
D: (Punch line) “Because you always close the case on my RIGHT TOE!
This is just an example of a skit i’ve done with puppets in the past. Please pray for my ministry, that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart will be acceptable to God in The Name Of The Lord Jesus Christ.
