The Imagination Station, Revisited, Part 1
Kelly gets in Whit's new "Imagination Station Experience" and is surprised to hear a voice, Mabel! Mabel selects a adventure at random. Kelly goes into "the door with the flashing red light. She finds herself in the middle of a road in the First Century B.C. and meets a blind boy named Josiah. Jesus is riding a donkey through the streets of Jerusalem and Josiah is trying to get to Jesus as he is hoping for healing. Josiah's father, a temple priest, and other priests of the temple come up and try to stop Jesus.
Kelly guides Josiah home, but then Josiah's father comes home angry! He berates Josiah about being at the triumphal entry. Kelly is about to leave the house when she disappears and reappears in an closet with a curtain. She overhears the priests planing to kill Jesus. Then another priest discovers her in the closet.
Then news comes that Jesus is attacking the temple merchants. The priests send Kelly to Jesus as a messenger. They tell Kelly to tell Jesus they have "lost their patience and now is his last chance to explain himself to the high priest". Other people come to Jesus to be healed, Josiah is among them too and Josiah is healed. Judas brings her back and starts to make plans for Jesus's death.
Kelly is locked in a storeroom, but as soon as she goes through the door she is in Josiah's storeroom! The door bursts open and she finds Josiah. Kelly tells Josiah that the high priests are planing to kill Jesus. They go to John Mark's house and serve food to Jesus and his disciples. When she walks out the house door she disappears again and finds herself on the Mount of Olives. Judas the temple guards come up to capture Jesus.
