Jesus. Finally Hawkins rose and broke the bread for those atnthe table, telling them that he very much wanted to eat thenbread with them, but would not eat again until the kingdomnof his Father had come. The same with the goblet of wine.n”Pass this among you and drink, but I will not drink until mynFather’s kingdom comes.”nAfter this, Hawkins dropped the bombshell: “The handnof one of you who will betray me is on this table.” Thenlatecomer who had taken the part of Judas looked down likena scolded dog. “Woe unto the man who betrays me.” Afternthis moment, the discussion turned to who was going to benboss after Jesus left the scene, and one or two of the disciplesnmanaged to get a laugh from the audience as they fussednand preened about their relative importance in the group.nThe scene turned serious again when Simon Peter insistednthat he was going to prison with Jesus if necessary, this afternJesus had told him Satan was after him. The little scenenclosed with Jesus telling Peter that three times before thencock crowed again he was going to deny even knowing him.nThe second scene was still in the upstairs room andnlargely of Jesus going over their years together, all the hardntimes and the good times. How, even though they had nonmoney or even shoes, they had stuck together and their faithnhad sustained them. Now the testing would begin again innearnest. He was to be tested; so were they, for all his worknwas left up to them and he was counting on them. AsnHawkins spoke, he felt a sadness.

The potted palms gave a goodnsemblance of a garden as Hawkins knelt to pray with hisnbody facing forty-five degrees to the audience. Most of thenstage was dimmed, with a soft spot on Hawkins as he begannspeaking quietly to his Father, asking Him if he wanted tonchange His mind about what seemed headlong and inevitable.nThat maybe what would serve best would be to go backnto the countryside and continue to preach.nHawkins remained quiet for a moment and then anshudder passed through him. His whole countenancenchanged, as the skin drew tightly across his facial bones, andnthe perspiration broke out on his forehead.nThe silence in the sanctuary deepened, as if a vast abyssnhad appeared. The people in the audience were rapt,nembraced as they were by the dark security of their vantagenpoint and the intimate vulnerability they were privy to.nMonica played the organ softly to close the scene.nHad this drama been elsewhere the audience could havenreleased the tension with applause. Instead they flockednaround Hawkins when the play was over. His face stillnglistened with perspiration and he seemed exhausted. Membersnof the congregation said several times what a naturalnactor he was. He smiled a little, but seemed like he wasnsomewhere else, even disoriented.nMonica came from her place at the organ. Standing ofi^non the edge of the admirers, she frowned slightly, lookingnworried. When the others moved away she asked anxiously,n”Are you OK?”n”Yes,” coming back from where he had been. “Yes.
