image of International Journal of Public Theology

This article looks at the particular ways in which the resurrection of Christ was staged in the public domain during four editions of a popular musical event named The Passion. Since its first edition in 2011, this annual performance on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has become a large media event in Dutch society. The author argues that its organizers—a television production company and two broadcasting companies—in their annual choices on how to shape and stage The Passion, make theological choices.
