Elizabeth and a crowd of people are standing, the people crowding in on Elizabeth
Elizabeth, angrily: Move back and give some room! I have been standing here since dawn, find your own space by the road!
Person1: How dare you even speak to honorable folk? How does one so unclean come to associate with righteous people?
Elizabeth: No different than yourself. I am here to see the prophet of Nazareth, Christ, the Messiah. I know he can heal me, if he will.
Person2: Elizabeth, you contaminate the area by your presence! And how would the Nazarene heal you when all the elders have failed.
Elizabeth: Because they are merely elders, he is the son of God.
Person1: Be careful how you speak of the elders! I can not imagine why they have not banished you!
Elizabeth: Jesus will cure my hemorrhage, heal my shame. I know he will!
crowd laughs at her
Person2: I can see it now! The prophet taking time out to interact with an unclean woman!
Elizabeth: You will see, just as I told you, he will see me and . . .
Person3, shouts: Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth, he is on his way into town! He is nearing town! He is coming, he will soon be here!
