As singing and dancing for the gods in forest glades. Then the dancing floor was built, and seats made in a semicircle for an audience. Actors were added, first one to relate a story theme to complement the singing, then a second actor and then a third.

Obviously the idea of 'drama' as human beings producing a performance symbolising something else has been around for almost as long as Homo sapiens or even erectus.Drama was practised in some form or another in most ancient civillisations. Drama as we know it, performed by actors in 'theatres' was invented by the Greeks. Indeed, drama is a Greek word. The idea of organised drama was taken up by the Romans and thereby spread through the ancient world.

Drama did not begin with the Old Testament. Homer's Iliadand Odyssey are far older, and there were dramas, either written or passed on orally, long before Homer's epics.
