This lyrical comedy concerns God's relationship with his creations, and Man's destiny. It covers many famous biblical scenes with a thoughtful eye, from episodes with God and Lucifer, Isaac and Rebecca and their sons Jacob and Esau, Jacob and the Angel, and Jacob begetting his children, to God's love affair with Mary, the birth of Jesus, and the Saviour's final betrayal by his idolising follower, the lonely, fearful Judas. Like the curate's egg, this is very funny in parts.
