The Substance Hoped For is based on Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the essence of things not seen." It is the journey of one man, Tom Snyder, from agnosticism to faith in God. That journey comes in the form of traveling back in time to the night Christ is born and eventually living with Joseph, Mary, and Jesus for almost two years. Struggling at first to simply accept that he is indeed back in time, he eventually comes to terms with that situation. Beyond that, believing in God and Jesus' true nature takes a bit more doing. Through Tom's 21st Century eyes, we see the Christmas story and the people of the New Testament as more than mere Sunday School characters. Taking his cues from the bible, human nature, and his years on the stage, Jeff King breathes the details of life into the three Wise Men, King Herod, Simeon at the temple, the soldiers who slaughter the Innocents, and even a few angels. Not to mention Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. Take the journey of faith with Tom and find for yourself The Substance Hoped For.
