Dramatising the Readings

The readings can be read by more than one person to make the dramatic meaning of the text clearer.

For instance, the second reading could be read by two readers: St Paul, and quotes from the Old Testament Scriptures; and the gospel could be read by two (or three) readers: the narrator (pastor), John the Baptist (, Isaiah).
