Too Many Storytellers

Get the Full Version

In this clip from Buck Denver Asks … What’s in the Bible? Volume 10: Jesus is the Good News! (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John), Phil find out that there are a lot of willing volunteers to tell the story of Jesus.

BUCK DENVER

Good day, world! This is Buck Denver – and it’s time for –

CAPTAIN PETE

Hang on! I got somethin’ to say!

BUCK DENVER

Uh – okay, Cap’n Pete… What is it?

CAPTAIN PETE

We’re tellin’ the story of Jesus, right?

BUCK DENVER

Right. Story of Jesus.

CAPTAIN PETE

The most important story ever, right?

BUCK DENVER

Most important story ever.

CAPTAIN PETE

Right. So I think I should tell it.

BUCK DENVER

What? You?

CAPTAIN PETE

Sure! A pirate’s touch is just right for such an important story! Cut to Phil – visibly uncomfortable.

PHIL

Um – hmm…

CHESTER WHIGGET

Wait a-just a minute!

BUCK DENVER

What? Who? Oh… Chester!

CHESTER WHIGGET

Everyone loved my telling of the story of Esther – it was beautiful and sensitive!

BUCK DENVER

Hmm – it was pretty good…

CHESTER WHIGGET
That’s why I should be the one to tell the story of Jesus.

PHIL

Mmm – I’m not so sure –

CHESTER WHIGGET

I’ve already got my a-Jesus popsicle stick!

PHIL

Ooh… uh… yeah…

CHUCK WAGGIN

Oh, come on!

CHUCK WAGGIN

Don’t you remember how well I told the story of Moses? Set to music?

PHIL

Yeah, that was nice.

CHUCK WAGGIN

Think about it! Jesus and country music! What could be more American?!?

PHIL

Hmm.

BUCK DENVER

What are we going to do, Phil? We have a plethora of eager storytellers.

CAPTAIN PETE

I don’t know what “plethora” means, but if it means “piratey,” you’ve only got one! Me!

CHUCK WAGGIN

I think it means “country style” – and I’m your man!

CHESTER WHIGGET

Everyone knows “plethora” means “with popsicle stick” – just like “con carne” means “with meat!”

PHIL

No, “plethora” means “a lot.” We have a lot of storytellers.
