Jesus Christ was perhaps the world’s most famous magician. The bible recounts tales of him performing various miraculous feats, many of which would certainly go down well in modern Las Vegas. These feats have since proved an inspiration for many stage performers, both religious and secular.
Of course, Jesus lived in a time in which people were accustomed to impossibility. In fact, if the gospel of St. Matthew is to be believed, a number of saints spontaneously rose from the dead and began to wander about the city – and no-one found this remotely remarkable.
Magic and religion haven’t always been the closest of bedfellows since then. In Christian Europe throughout the middle ages, an accusation of witchcraft was more often than not deemed sufficient warrant for a grisly execution. Fortunately, we now live in more tolerant times.
In this section of the website you’ll find all of our magical items with a distinctly Christian twist. These include wooden beads which provide a powerful visual metaphor about the nature of sin, and a trio of differently-coloured ropes which do the same job in regard to the mystery of the trinity.
Some of these religious messages are quite difficult to convey – especially to young children. But, with the aid of magical aids and props, Christian imagery and ideas can be spread. So, if you’re a Christian – or you know someone who is – then why not consider some of the items listed here?
