NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Faith Ministry Church in Nashville re-enacted the crucifixion of Jesus today.

A man playing the messiah picked up a cross, dragged it through the rain and pretended to hang from it for passersby to see.

The church acted out the scenes once this morning and again this afternoon in recognition of Good Friday.

"We had a group tell us this morning they are from the Middle East," said the organizer Jessica Weeks. "And they said they had never seen anything like this before. Brother Derick does an awesome job playing Jesus."

This was the third year Faith Ministry Church put on this display for Berrien County.
