Hamilton: Hip Hop on Broadway

"The hottest ticket on Broadway is the hip-hop musical
“Hamilton!”

It's Hamilton's story from his early days of poverty to becoming one of America's most influential Founders, a leading proponent and interpreter of the US Constitution, and our first Treasury Secretary. Hip-hop artist Lin-Manuel Miranda created the Broadway phenomenon, Hamilton, which according to Christianity Today, is “making American history cool again. . .and is a display of biblical literacy. . .making its story and characters even richer!”

“Foes oppose us, we take an honest stand / We roll like Moses, claimin’ our promised land”—a reference to the Exodus, just one of multiple references to the Bible! Engage with the Bible—in all its many versions!"
