WordPlay is a blended experience between The Bible’s nickname (The Word) & the double meaning of Play: (1) having fun, specifically with scriptures, as they animate our mystery-laced New Christian Parables and (2) an actual play or Family Skit version as a bonus with each story! It’s a fun yet academic handshake between in-the-beginning & once-upon-a-time (Word + Play = WordPlay!).
Example: The Parable of The Visiting Son
"What’s going on?” Junior demands.The nosy crowd is astonished, including the father.
"They're taking my home." His father says reluctantly (John 10:10).
"Give ME the debt!” The son yells toward the just-business environment (Isaiah 53:3).
"But," the bankers replies, "this is not your problem! (John 18:35)”
The son stands his ground until the banker finally gives in (Luke 22:42). And, with the bill now in junior's name, the son simply reaches in his pocket and pays it off, cash (Isaiah 53:10). And immediately after, many witness the banker and the son wink at each other. To this day, spectators wonder, "Did the banker secretly arrange for this well-timed rescue?" (I John 1:21) (Psalms 22:30)

I sit here as their psychologist reluctant to acknowledge this scene:
A narcissistic groom, it seems (Proverbs 16:18),
their heart logistics doomed (Luke 14:11) if we can’t quickly earn some apologies (Mark 1:15)
As their exes cheer against them (John 10:10), and their kid’s the clearest victim (I John 3:16),
