The Ohio Scriptorium and Bible Festival (2019) ——- 5th Year Edition

… featuring the Life of David.

Available Chapters

 

For the 2019 Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival, our focus is on The Life of David.

The Life of David spans several Old Testament books, detailing his early life as a young adult, a lowly shepherd, a gifted artist, a fearless warrior, and a pragmatic fugitive; as well as his later years as God’s handpicked King of Israel, including his military conquests, tumultuous family dysfunction, and unfailing devotion to Jehovah God. I & II Samuel, 1 Chronicles, 1 Kings & some Psalms capture the divinely-inspired narrative of an ancient king of a small, middle-eastern  strip of land, who would be the first monarch in an unbroken line of royalty that would ultimately lead to the King of kings, Jesus Christ.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to recite at least one chapter from any one of these books as an individual and/or as a family or group in the various forms of recitation that we offer. Individuals, families and/or groups can sign up for no more than two chapters per individual and one per family/group. (Multiple chapters may be reserved by individual members of the same family.)

Please send chapter requests using the Contact Form on the Register page. When a chapter has been reserved it will be crossed out in the list as soon as we are alerted to the request. (Please Note: Chapter reservations will be updated on this page by 10AM EST, the day following their request.)

For those who would like to dramatize their chapter recitation with emotional expression, related props & wardrobe, and even assisting, but not disruptive or distracting, sound effects, may do so on either day. (All props, wardrobe & relevant effects must be disclosed in advance to Festival organizers and receive advanced approval.)

Friday is reserved for all selected chapters in 1 Samuel (see below), as well as the Psalms (22-23, 34, 52, 54, 56-57, 59, 63, 141-142) tied to the events of those 1 Samuel chapters. In addition, the early chapters of 2 Samuel (1-4) and a couple chapters of 1 Chronicles (11-12, 14), and their related Psalms (30, 110), will also be recited this day. We also plan to have the Preliminary Rounds of our second annual Scriptorium Game Show in the afternoon, where we will test teams-of-3 and their specific knowledge of the Life of David.

Saturday is reserved for the remaining chapters of 2 Samuel (6-23), 1 Chronicles (13, 15-16, 21-22, 28-29) their related Psalms (3, 9, 32, 38, 51, 60, 69, 139), and the first couple chapters of 1 Kings (1-2). We also plan to have the Semifinal and Final Rounds of the Scriptorium Game Show, where we will test Friday’s top teams-of-3 and crown our champion who will win 100,000 cents for their favorite ministry/charity.

The Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival strives for excellence in the handling of God’s Word. While we desire for all Bible recitation to be enjoyable for the orator, we especially want it to be edifying for the hearers; therefore, in reserving 1 chapter, we request that all who make reservations, whether for “straight” recitation or dramatization, must have their chapter(s) fully memorized and mastered, at least, four weeks in advance of their scheduled performance (i.e., by the end of May 2019). Festival organizers will require all scheduled performers to either perform their chapter(s) in advance, upon request, if local to our event, or submit video/audio evidence by the beginning of June 2019.

Festival organizers reserve the right to reassign or reduce chapter recitations in the event of cancellation, due to illness, injury, family tragedy, travel delays, other unforeseen circumstances, or lack of necessary preparation in order to recite satisfactorily (according to Festival Guidelines & Standards).
