The Bible tells us that Jesus was a carpenter. That’s it. End of storyline. How unsatisfying! There are so many unanswered questions. What did he build? Was he good at it? When did he ever find the time? Jesus Master Builder takes over that story where the Bible left off, and answers the above questions: He built Homes; He was a lousy carpenter; and He had much better (and Holier) things to do. That’s all fine and good for the souls of mankind, but what about the poor Customers of Christ? The play follows the quest of Jebediah, as he leads the first ever Condo Association through biblical events to find Jesus Christ and bring Him back into their lives… to fix the deficiencies in the homes that Jesus built.
