Esther Rasbach still remembers the sick feeling that overtook her four years ago as she sat in her Hollywood living room and watched the nearby Hope Lutheran Church erupt in a pre-dawn blaze. Within two hours, an arsonist's fire had destroyed the 1915-vintage building on Melrose Avenue, where Rasbach's husband, H.K., had served as pastor for 34 years before handing over duties to their son, Mark, in 1981.

The Sheriff's Department would not say how or why they think she was killed for fear of jeopardizing the investigation, Rivera said.

The production in the chapel of the Hope Lutheran Church in West Hollywood (co-produced with director David Charles Keeton) shows Jesus' family as a commonplace group upset that Jesus was such a radical.
