(Mike Coles chats to Matthew
(Musical Introduction - Start of something new instrumental version)
(Just before the show proper begins, a small group of musicians walk
on to the stage. They are mainly singers, male and female, but some
of them play ryhthm and melody instruments. You'll here more about
music during biblical time later in the show.
The group begins the show by singing the words of Mary in that
amazing song of praise recorded in luke, chapter one, verses 46 to
These words were used as a great hymn in worship at a very early
date. The audience join in, as most of them know the words, and
they make a glorious sound.
At the end the audience applaued and cheer. The music group exit
the stage. Mike thanks the group as they leave.)
MIKE: Now, ladies and gentlemen, without any further ado, I would
like you to welcome this weeks guest, that one-time dodgy tax
collector turned good - Matthew, the son of Alphaeus!
