This week my students will begin engaging the Gospels. To prepare them for this—as well as their brief encounter with the Book of Acts and week or so studying the Pauline Epistles—I’ve created a Guess Who?-style game that focuses on characters from these writings.
Unlike the original game, I don’t focus on the physical features of my characters, but some central aspects of how they’re presented. I had tried a version of this a couple years ago that was a bit clunky so I went back to the drawing board and decided to modify it. Here’s the product if you’re interested:
And yes, the name is a nod to Jesus Among Friends and Enemies: A Historical and Literary Introduction to Jesus and the Gospels edited by Chris Keith and the late Larry Hurtado.
