These three short dramas, Paying Taxes, One Bride for Seven Brothers, and The Greatest Commandment are designed to be done back-to-back in a single service or in consecutive services. They come from Matthew 22:15-46.
While this pericope is about 3 encounters of the religious leaders with Jesus; the drama proceeds without a Jesus character. All interaction is among the Pharisees or Sadducees as they wrestle with their inability to best the Messiah, or even recognize the one that they hope to discredit.
All 3 dramas do involve some costuming and perhaps a little music for effect.
