A play for two, suggesting Jesus ruled with love - and that's a better idea then domination and revenge.
Has a science fiction theme and a fun list of song titles used as dialogue toward the end.
NOTE: This is a standalone script but also has the same characters as a preceding "Bible Heroes 2.oh" si-fi script that explores how the Bible heroes were only powerful because they had God's power behind them.
X-on: Commander Zorg, I have those planet destroyer blueprints you asked for.
Zorg: [very sad] Just stick them over there.
X-on: Sir? What’s up? You look terrible - and not in an ‘evil villain’ kind of way.
Zorg: Everybody hates me
X-on: Sir, that’s not true!... Not everybody knows you!
Zorg: You’d think with my wealth, my galaxy domination, my swift revenge on those who disagree with me – You’d think people would be in awe of me! I mean, no one is greater than I in the universe, and yet, everybody hates me.
X-on: Maybe, sir, and if I may speak frankly, maybe that’s not the kind of hero people want.
Zorg: Yeah, what kind of hero to you think people want?
X-on: Maybe you need to try being like…. that Jesus-God guy
Zorg: Oh?? How did he awe people into submission? Was it with lightning?
X-on: Err no
Zorg: Flashy light sabre manoeuvres?
Zorg: Tax cuts????
X-on: NO, he used humility… service…. And… love.
Zorg: Humility, service and…. what?
Zorg: Well that sounds ridiculous. You’d never get anyone following you if you ruled with love.
X-on: He sure did. Lasting for millenniums so far, and growing.
Zorg: But everyone would walk all over you! Surely he shows some kind of ruthless power and control to get so many subscribers?
X-on: Nope, that’s not how he did it.
Zorg: He used A crazy little thing called love?
X-on: Endless love!
Zorg: All you need it love?
X-on: Love is the answer
Zorg: What the world needs now is love?
X-on: Love makes the world go round!
Zorg: I wanna know what love is.
X-on: With a capital G
[start to exit]
Zorg: I wish I had somebody to love. How deep is your love, X-on? Do you, Love me Tender?
X-on: As long as you keep paying me, I-ee-i will always love you, sir.
