Following the outdoor theatrical production, guests will go inside where their hearts and bodies will be warmed by a tender indoor scene in which Simeon declares Jesus an offering without blemish to cover the sins of the world.

Guests will continue their first-century experience at an indoor marketplace that abounds with carpenters, weavers, jugglers, Roman soldiers, pottery makers, musicians and knitters.
