— Бывшему человеку («Я мог бы быть обычным человеком, но я упустил эту роль!», по БГ!) вам очень много (немало!) сказать (а не исключено, что и сделать!); вот скажем:
Свидетельство часто бывающего
(не иначе как)
"в шкуре" Иисуса
Свидетельствую, что … Произведение это – истинно
(причём … в подлинном, собственно … истинном смысле этого слОва!)
по многим очень отношениям, будь то … музыка, или поэзия, или общий сюжет…;
свидетельствую это как "побывавший во шкуре" (и … часто бывающий снова!) описанного (воспетого!) в ней как «Иисус», отличный весьма от "Иисуса" религиозных людей!
У них Он – куда более "мифологичный", чем тут … реальный!
(Прямо … «Сошёл с икон», как и поётся в русской версии «Сна Пилата»!)
паломничество в Иерусалим
И … вот даже это похоже на чтО:
то, что они, религиозные люди, разсказывают о поездке (паломничестве) в Иерусалим,
в смысле … живой поездке, не в виде кино- и теле- путешествия,
а … чтО и называется как «вживую»live»).
Тогда, как они говорят, поражает реальность описанного в Евангелии,
которое, видимо, им до того – и представлялось как "Сказка"!
То же сАмое – тут:
:
Вот в частности же …
  • что Иисус Христос – Бог
    (утверждения Христа о Своём Божестве)
    были для ветхозаветных людей большой неожиданностью,
    как и поётся в рок-опере:
    «No talk of God then, we called you a man»…
  • а уж … (в русской версии) «Философ наш, куда ты нас завёл» (…от упрямства твоего) –

проникновенна, не без наития; часто хочется даже сказать Богодухновенна
(ведь … «Дух дышит где хочет», согласно Писанию!);
с чего бы даже … исключать, что через пару веков его включат в христианский канон?


Проповеди А.Голенкова
по рок-опере «Jesus Christ Superstar»
(или … к которым она дала повод):

cirota.ru/forum/view.php?subj=94157
В 84 знака названия темы на cirota.ru/forum это вписано так:

Иисус звал к Конструированию бытия, где "Смирение", "Любовь" – как конструктрский элемент

Проповедь от 15 ноября 2011:

К чему звал Иисус
«…Иисус к смирению звал, а ты зовёшь на крест!;
— Несчастный либерал, сиди и жди чудес!
»
(из рок-оперы «Jesus Christ Superstar»)
— Иисус звал … извините, но к … КОНСТРУИРОВАНИЮ БЫТИЯ!
«Кто не собирает со Мной, тот расточает».
Где … "Смирение" – только один элемент, лишь одна из сторон, содержащих … "конструкторские возможности"! (Например … временами – полезно подставить щеку, когда ударили по другой; но … НЕ ДО БЕЗПРЕДЕЛА ж!)
      Другая ж (из этих стороны) даже порой проявлялась как … ПРАВЕДНЫЙ ГНЕВ, или НЕНАВИСТЬ:
…И насилием выгнал торговцем из Храма, и проклял смоковницу, и даже велел ненавидеть родных, когда к ним "Любовь" – извините, но уже более не конструктивна в том Конструировании бытия («Кто не собирает со Мной, тот расточает»), о котором здесь речь!; «И враги человеку домашние его»; «Кто не возненавидит отца и мать ради Меня, тот не достоин Меня!»…
      Многих христиан это может шокировать (и они полезут сейчас прямо в Библию проверять, так ли это!); чтО делать: в историческом христианстве из Несомого (принесённого миру) Христом брали лишь то, чтО хотели, и игнорировали "ненужное" или же … "непонятное", или же … чтО нельзя приспособить для … построения НУЖНЫХ ИДОЛОВ!
      Что нужно власть имущему классу? – "Смирение"! "Покорность"! Вот и орут до хрипоты "о Смирении", заглушая противоположную сторону, затмевая и вовсе глаза на неё! «Христос терпел, и нам велел»: может это даже в Библии сказано? Но в Библии сказано вот такое: «Ищите же прежде всего Царства Божия и ПРАВДЫ ЕГО»; власть имущему классу – вряд-ли это "очень по душе"! (Революционное «Отречёмся от старого мира» – кстати, тоже из Библии!)
      А чтО нужно сейчас, на чём помешано современное христианство? – Оправдать всё зло вокруг как <пресловутую> "Волю Божию". (Такая уж … СОВРЕМЕННАЯ ИДЕОЛОГИЯ!) Как будто … кроме того что Бог … ВСЕМОГУЩ и ВСЕВЕДУЩ (и стало быть, делают вывод, "Всё зло – от Бога"), Бог ещё не … ТАИНСТВЕН, НЕИЗРЕЧЕНЕН, НЕПОСТИЖИМ (Творец, а не тварь!; а все имена и понятия – из области твари!БЕЗЫМЯНЕН!; НЕТВАРЕН!), а во Христе – ещё и … (непостижимо!) УБИТ человеческим злом, МЁРТВ от греха, вовсе В АДЕ!
      Кто внушил христианам считать, что в аде Бог во Христе побывал только около полутора суток, по земному времени, когда Бог – ВНЕ ВРЕМЕНИ, когда … всё чтО продемонстрировал Бог во Христе – СИМВОЛ ВЕЧНОГО?! (ИМЯ вечного, ВОРОТА в него!)
      — И у православных святых есть опыт Бого-оставленности (редкий святой был без этого Опыта!), и Христос кричал со Креста: «Боже! Почто Ты оставил меня?!», и в Писании освидетельствовано (Апокалипсис 13:8), что Божий Агнец во Христе заклан «до создания мира», то есть – (говоря проще) ВНЕ ВРЕМЕНИ!
      Это значит, что Бог во Христе – как воскрес, так и … извините, УБИТ! Что же заставляет христиан в "христианской" (сказать с позволения) истории брать только одно, и не брать другое?! (Для … построения нужных идолов!)
      «Христос воскрес!» они громогласно кричат на каждую Пасху, а вот что … Бог во Христе – ещё и убиваем, казним (их же злом!) – кто им скажет?!
      Разве … Егор Летов: «Да будет свят!; Господь распят!» (песня «Невыносимая лёгкость бытия»*), апостол Павел («…решил не знать ничего кроме Христа, и притом что РАСПЯТОГО», да вот ещё … РУССКИЙ АТЕИЗМ, ведь … в каком-то смысле так Бога – и … НЕТ, о чём тот – лишь СВИДЕТЕЛЬСТВОВАЛ! (Впрочем … тоже беря лишь одну только стОрону, как и эти идолопоклонники до него!; а … «Кто не собирает со Мной, тот расточает»!)


* Из песни Летова «Невыносимая лёгкость бытия»:
«…Ни смолистых дров, ни целебных трав, ни кривых зеркал, ни прямых углов, ни колючих роз, ни гремучих гроз, ни дремучих снов, ни помойных ям, никаких обид, никаких преград, никаких невзгод, никаких соплей, никаких грехов, никаких богов, никакой судьбы, никакой надежды!». («На израненой ладони сохнет подорожник, а в разорваной глотке /оскаленном сердце/ зреет … НЕВЫНОСИМАЯ ЛЁГКОСТЬ БЫТИЯ!») Дух … Бого-оставленности, Бого-убийства – непередаваемо передан во многих песнях Летова! («…По пустым полям, по сухим морям, по родной грязи, по весенней живой воде! По земной глуши, по небесной лжи, по хмельной тоске и смирительным бинтам… По печной золе, по гнилой листве, по святым хлебам и оскаленным капканам… По своим следам, по своим слезам, по своей вине да по вольной своей кровИ… Мимо злых ветров, золотых дождей, ядовитых зорь и отравленных ручьёв… Мимо пышных фраз, мимо лишних нас, золотых зверей и резиновых подруг… Мимо потных лбов мимо полных ртов мимо жадных глаз и распахнутых объятий… Сквозь степной бурьян, сквозь стальной туман, проливным огнём по кромешной синеве! На покинутой планете стынет колокольчик, а в обугленном небе зреет … НЕВЫНОСИМАЯ ЛЁГКОСТЬ БЫТИЯ!»…)



Обрывки из ранее писанного (не-до-писанного):
Рок-опера «Jesus Christ Superstar» – великое, величайшее произведение (великое, величайшее ПРОТИВОРЕЧИЕ, как скажу я там дальше!): там, гениальное, и всё остальное (вот только что ещё раз её слушал!), хотя …
      Моё положение не позволяет никак просто "что-то хвалить" или "что-то ругать", но и требует … во всём видеть ПРОТИВОРЕЧИЕ!
      Область же БОГОСЛОВИЯ – именно тА, где оно МАКСИМАЛЬНО! (Как-никак … "слово о Боге", т.е., Неизреченном, Которого – и пытаются изрекать!; «В начале было Слово», к примеру…).
      И … естественно, что не этому рокенрольному тексту "тягаться" с теми … "наиизощрённейшими ("exquisite"!) приёмами", которые выработала вековечная богословская мысль…, по сравнению с которыми кажется он … да почти богохульным! (Вернее … сперва хотел сказать так: «…Не сказать "богохульным", но вот «blasphemous» – можно сказать!»)
      Но не ограничимся текстом; здесь он взаимосвязан ведь с музыкой, которая временами содержит прорывы … в просто Запредельное! (Как вроде бы музыке и должно быть свойственно и присуще по САМОМУ ЕЁ СУЩЕСТВУ, кроме "отпетой попсЫ", разумеется!) То, чтО она «Не от мира сего» – однозначно! (В особенности … когда возвращаешься от прослушивания сей дивной Оперы к … той бесовщине, попсовой муре, которую день и ночь крутят по радио-телевидению!)
      Да и … чтО тут вообще говорить, когда она мне и вовсе АВТОБИОГРАФИЧНА?! Пусть уши зажмут или пальцем вертят у виска те, кто подумал, что "это послышалось" или что "я спятил"! Все воспетые в ней моменты я пережил на себе, и переживаю каждый день и час! Вот

… … …


Рок-опера «Jesus Christ Superstar» – не без наития, и не от "духов злобы поднебесной". Хотя и … в достаточной мере уродлива, как и всё рокенрольное! Обычно поклонники жанра не замечают этого, впадая с ним в "резонанс", и, в "экстазе любви", способны простить ему многое (в любимом – не замечаются ведь недостатки!). В каком-то плане, однако же, это … именно чтО мне и надо: только "намётки на тО, чтО я бы хотел", а не самО тО; в принципе как и ВСЯ ЖИЗНЬ!

Переводы – вне критики, даже о них невозможно всерьёз говорить! Вот … потому-то я ведь и сказал о "наитии", что в английской версии (оригинале) "обойдены стороной" все острые углы, которые бы могли для кого-то звучать как богохульство, или элементарная богословская безграмотность, чего в переводах – полно! Переводчики ведь – со всей очевидностью и не были: ни богословами, ни молитвенниками…, а просто хотели угнаться за … неким "понтом"! ("Чтобы звучало понтово"!) Оттого-то в уста Апостолов и Христа влагают не весть чтО, чтО меня просто РЕЖЕТ: и как в прошлом молитвенника, и как теперь богослова! Такой "христос" и такие "апостолы" – точно похожи на "вытанцовывающих демонов", и не более! Чего невозможно сказать об Оригинале! Хотя и он – постоянно НА ЭТОЙ ГРАНИ, но … разве на этой грани не был постоянно в глазах иудеев и Сам Христос?!

И это, собственно … ПРИБЛИЖАЕТ К ХРИСТУ! Позволяет:

  • и окунуться в РЕАЛЬНУЮ обстановку тех дней;
  • и видеть перед собою РЕАЛЬНО Христа;
  • да и … простите меня (извиняюсь), но … в чём-то автобиографично!

… … …


Несомненнейший вред от рок-опер таких – заключается в том, что музыка – очень навязчива, и человек запоминает мелодию с текстом, и они сами вертятся у него в голове, даже когда магнитофон или плеер давно уже выключены! А, в таком качестве, злобные выкрики иудейских распинателей и фарисеев под ритмичную музыку – это "что-то"! …Одно дело – слушать оперу как оперу: в одном месте (раньше для этого входили в театр, например), одно время (хоть и … выделив два-три часа, например…), другое же дело – когда элементы её постоянно преследуют, и вот так в голове вертятся! С действительно верой в Иисуса Христа это несовместимо! (Возникает вопрос: для кого же, тогда, эта опера?…)


«…After all, I tried for these years»,
«…Could you ask as much from any other man?»
(из рок-оперы «Jesus Christ Superstar»)

lyrics

Heaven On Their Minds

JUDAS
My mind is clearer now.
At last all too well I can see where we all soon will be.
If you strip away the myth from the man,
You will see where we all soon will be.

Jesus!
You've started to believe
The things they say of you.
You really do believe
This talk of God is true.
All all the good you've done
Will soon get swept away.
You've begun to matter more than the things you say.

Listen Jesus I don't like what I see.
All I ask is that you listen to me.
And remember, I've been your right hand man all along.
You have set them all on fire.
They think they've found the new Messiah,
And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong.

I remember when this whole thing began.
No talk of God then, we called you a man.
And believe me, my admiration for you hasn't died.
But every word you say today
Get's twisted 'round some other way.
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied.

Nazareth, your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
Like his father carving wood
He'd have made good.
Tables, chairs, and oaken chest would have suited Jesus best.
He'd have caused nobody harm, no-one alarm.

Listen Jesus, do you care for your race?
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied; have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd.
For we are getting much too loud.
And they'll crush us if we go too far.

Listen Jesus, to the warning I give.
Please remember that I want us to live.
But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour.
All your followers are blind.
Too much heaven on their minds.
It was beautiful but now it's sour.
Yes it's all gone sour......

What's the Buzz

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

JESUS
Why should you want to know?
Don't you mind about the future?
Don't you try to think ahead?
Save tomorrow for tomorrow.
Think about today instead.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

JESUS
I could give you facts and figures.
I could give you plans and forecasts.
Even tell you where I'm going.

APOSTLES
When do we ride into Jerusalem?

JESUS
Why should you want to know?
Why are you obsessed with fighting
Times and fates you can't defy?
If you knew the path we're riding,
You'd understand it less than I.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

MARY MAGDALENE
Let me try to cool down your face a bit.

JESUS
That feels nice, so nice....
Mary that is good -
While you prattle through your supper -
Where and when and who and how
She alone has tried to give me
What I need right here and now.

APOSTLES
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening.

Strange Thing Mystifying

PETER
It seems to me a strange thing, mystifying
That a man like you could waste his time on women of her kind.
Yes, I can understand that she amuses,
But to let her stroke you, kiss your hair, is hardly in your line.

It's not that I object to her profession,
But she doesn't fit in well, with what you teach and say.
It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent.
They only need a small excuse to put us all away.

JESUS
Who are you to criticize her?
Who are you to despise her?
Leave her, leave her let her be now.
Leave her, leave her, she's with me now.
If your slate is clean, then you can throw stones.
If your slate is not, then leave her alone.

I'm amazed that men like you can be so shallow, thick and slow.
There is not a man among you who knows or cares if I come or go.

ALL (save Peter and Jesus)
No, you're wrong! You're very wrong!
No, you're wrong, You're very wrong!
How can you say that?
How can you say that!?

JESUS
Not one, not one of you!

Everything's Alright

MARY MAGDALENE
Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine,
And we want you to sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without you tonight.
If we try, we'll get by, so forget all about us tonight.

CHOIR
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

MARY MAGDALENE
Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you, and anoint you...
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh.
Then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
And it's cool, and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet.
Close your eyes, close your eyes
And relax, think of nothing tonight.

CHOIR
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

JUDAS
Woman, your fine ointment, brand new and expensive
Could have been saved for the poor.
Why has it been wasted? We could have raised maybe
Three hundred silver pieces or more.
People who are hungry, people who are starving
They matter more than your feet and hair.

MARY MAGDALENE
Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine,
And we want you to sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without you tonight.
If we try, we'll get by, so forget all about us tonight.

CHOIR
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes.

JESUS
Surely you're not saying we have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always, pathetically struggling
Look at the good things you've got.
Think while you still have me!
Move while you still see me!
You'll be lost, you'll be so sorry when I'm gone.

MARY MAGDALENE
Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you...
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh.
Then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet.
Close your eyes, close your eyes, and relax....

CHOIR
Everything's alright, yes, everything's alright, yes......

And Then We Are Decided
(Included only in the motion picture)

CAIAPHAS
We've been sitting on the fence for far too long.

ANNAS
Why let him upset us? Caiaphas, let him be.
All those imbeciles will see he really doesn't matter.

CAIAPHAS
But Jesus is important! We've let him go his way before.
And while he starts a major war, we theorize and chatter.

ANNAS
He's just another scripture thumping hack from Galilee.

CAIAPHAS
The difference is they call him King. The difference frightens me.
What about the Roman's? When they see Jesus crowned
Do you think they'll stand around cheering and applauding?
What about our people? If they see we've lost our nerve,
Don't you think that they deserve something more rewarding?

ANNAS
They've got what they want. They think so anyway.
If he's what they want, why take their toy away?

CAIAPHAS
Put yourself in my place.
I cannot let my hands be tied. I am law and order.
What about our priesthood? Don't you see that we could fall?
If we are to last at all, we cannot be divided.

ANNAS
Then say so to the council, but don't rely on subtlety.
Frighten them, or they won't see.

CAIAPHAS
Then we are decided?

ANNAS
Then we are decided.

This Jesus Must Die

ANNAS
Good, Caiaphas, the council waits for you.

GAMALIEL
The Pharisees and priests are here for you.

CAIAPHAS
Ah, gentlemen, you know why we are here.
We've not much time, and quite a problem here.

CHOIR (outside)
Hosanna Superstar!
Hosanna Superstar!
Hosanna Superstar!
Hosanna Superstar!

ANNAS
Listen to the howling mob of blockheads in the street!
A trick or two with lepers, and the whole towns on its feet.

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

CHOIR (outside)
Jesus Christ...Superstar!

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

CHOIR (outside)
Tell us that you're who they say you are!

GAMALIEL
The man is in town right now to whip up some support

ANNAS
A rabble rousing mission that I think we should abort.

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

CHOIR (outside)
Jesus Christ Superstar!

ALL (inside)
He is dangerous!

GAMALIEL
Look Caiaphas -they're right outside our yard!

ANNAS
Quick Caiaphas-go call the Roman guard!

CAIAPHAS
No, wait!
We need a more permanent solution to our problem.

ANNAS
What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth?
Miracle wonderman, hero of fools.

GAMALIEL
No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans.....

CAIAPHAS
One thing I'll say for him - Jesus is cool.

ANNAS
We dare not leave him to his own devices.
His half-witted fans will get out of control.

GAMALIEL
But how can we stop him? His glamour increases
By leaps every minute, he's top of the poll.

CAIAPHAS
I see bad things arising.
The crowd crown him king; which the Romans would ban.
I see blood and destruction,
Our elimination because of one man.

Blood and destruction because of one man.

ALL (inside)
Because, because, because of one man.

CAIAPHAS
Our elimination because of one man.

ALL (inside)
Because, because, because of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of one man.

GAMALIEL
What then to do about this Jesusmania?

ANNAS
How do we deal with this carpenter king?

GAMALIEL
Where do we start with a man who is bigger
Than John was when John did his baptism thing?

CAIAPHAS
Fools! You have no perception!
The stake we are gambling are frighteningly high.
We must crush him completely,
So like John before him, this Jesus must die.
For the sake of the nation, this Jesus must die.

ALL (inside)
Must die, must die, this Jesus must die.

CAIAPHAS
So like John before him, this Jesus must die

ALL (inside)
Must die, must die, this Jesus must, Jesus must, Jesus must die!

Hosanna

CHOIR
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you smile at me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

GAMALIEL
Tell the rabble to be quiet, we anticipate a riot.
This common crowd is much too loud.
Tell the mob who sing your song that they are fools and they are wrong.
They are a curse. They should disperse.

CHOIR
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC you're alright by me.
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

JESUS
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting.
If every tongue were still, the noise would still continue.
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing:

CHOIR and JESUS
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you fight for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

JESUS
Sing me your songs, but not for me alone.
Sing them for yourselves for you are blessed
There is not one of you who cannot win the Kingdom:
The slow, the suffering, the quick, the dead.

CHOIR and JESUS
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey JC, JC won't you die for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

Poor Jerusalem

CHOIR
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.
Jesus I am on your side.
Kiss me, kiss me, Jesus.

JOHN
Christ, what more do you need to convince you
That you've made it, and you're easily as strong
As the filth from Rome who rape our country,
And who've terrorized our people for so long.

CHOIR
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.

JOHN
There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and more for you.
Everyone of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you asked them to.
Keep them yelling their devotion,
But add a touch of hate at Rome.
You will rise to a greater power.
We will win ourselves a home.
You will get the power and the glory.
Forever and and ever and ever.
Amen! Amen!

JESUS
Neither you, Simon, nor the fifty thousand,
Nor the Romans, nor the Jews,
Nor Judas, nor the twelve,
Nor the priests, nor the scribes,
Nor doomed Jerusalem itself,
Understand what power is,
Understand what glory is,
Understand at all,
Understand at all.

If you knew all that I knew, my poor Jerusalem,
You'd see the truth, but you close your eyes...
But you close your eyes.
While you live, your troubles are many, poor Jerusalem.
To conquer death, you only have to die -
You only have to die.

Pilate's Dream

PILATE
I dreamed I met a Galilean,
A most amazing man.
He had that look you rarely find,
The haunted, hunted kind.

I asked him to say what had happened,
How it all began
I asked again - he never said a word.
As if he hadn't heard.

And next, the room was full of wild and angry men.
They seemed to hate this man.
They fell on him him, and then,
They disappeared again.

Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard then mentioning my name,
And leaving me the blame.

The Temple

CHOIR
Roll on up, for my price is down.
Come on in for the best in town.
Take your pick on the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine.

Roll on up, for my price is down.
Come on in for the best in town.
Take your pick on the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine.

Name your price. I got everything.
Come and buy. It's all going fast.
Borrow cash on the finest terms.
Hurry now while stocks last.

JESUS
My temple should be a house of prayer,
But you have made it a den of thieves.
Get out! Get out!

Healings

JESUS
My time is almost through.
Little left to do.
After all, I've tried for three years
Seems like thirty...Seems like thirty.

CHOIR
See my eyes, I can hardly see.
See me stand I can hardly walk.
I believe you can make me whole
See my tongue, I can hardly talk.

See my skin, I'm a mess of blood.
See my legs, I can hardly stand.
I believe you can make me well.
See my purse, I'm a poor, poor man.

Will you touch, will you mend me Christ?
Won't you touch, will you heal me Christ?
Will you kiss, you can cure me Christ!
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me Christ?

JESUS
There's too many of you...Don't push me.
There's too little of me...Don't crowd me.
Heal yourselves!

I Don't Know How To Love Him

MARY MAGDALENE
Try not to get worried. Try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh.
Don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.

JESUS
And I think I shall sleep well tonight.
Let the world turn without me tonight.

MARY MAGDALENE
Close your eyes. Close your eyes,
And forget all about us tonight.

MARY MAGDALENE
I don't know how to love him.
What to do, how to move him.
I've been changed, yes, really changed.
In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
I seem like someone else.

I don't know how to take this.
I don't see why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
And I've had so many many men before,
In very many ways.
He's just one more.

Should I bring him down?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love,
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?

Don't you think it's rather funny,
I should be in this position.
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool.
Running every show.
He scares me so.

I never thought I'd come to this.
What's this all about?

Yet, if he said he loved me,
I'd be lost. I'd be frightened.
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope.
I'd turn my head. I'd back away.
I wouldn't want to know.
He scares me so.
I want him so.
I love him so.

Damned for All Time

JUDAS
Now if I help you, it matters that you see
These sordid kinda things are coming hard to me.
It's taken me some time to work out what to do.
I weighed the whole thing out before I came to you.
I had no thought of my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

I came because I had to; I'm the one who saw.
Jesus can't control me like he did before.
And furthermore I know that Jesus thinks so too.
Jesus wouldn't mind that I was here with you.
I had no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

Annas, you're a friend, a worldly man and wise.
Caiaphas, my friend, I know you sympathize.
Why are we the prophets? Why are we the ones
Who see the sad solution - know what must be done?
I had no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm damned for all time.

Blood Money

ANNAS
Cut the protesting, forget the excuses.
We want information. Get up off the floor.

CAIAPHAS
We have the papers we need to arrest him.
You know his movements. We know the law.

ANNAS
Your help in the matter won't go unrewarded.

CAIAPHAS
We'll pay you in silver, cash on the nail.
We just need to know where the soldiers can find him...

ANNAS
With no crowd around him....

CAIAPHAS
Then we can't fail.

JUDAS
I don't need your blood money!

CAIAPHAS
Oh, that doesn't matter, our expenses are good.

JUDAS
I don't want your blood money!

ANNAS
But you might as well take it. We think that you should.

CAIAPHAS
Think of the things you could do with that money,
Choose any charity - give to the poor.
We've noted your motives. We've noted your feelings.
This isn't blood money - it's a fee, nothing more.

JUDAS
On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him:
Far from the crowd, in the Garden of Gethsemane.

JESUS
Well done Judas.
Good old Judas.

The Last Supper

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine.
Don't disturb me now, I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine.

Always hoped that I'd be an apostle.
Knew that I could make it if I tried.
Then when we retire, we can write the Gospels,
So they'll all talk about us when we've died.

JESUS
The end.....
Is just a little harder when brought about by friends.
For all you care, this wine could be my blood.
For all you care, this bread could be my body.
The end!
This is my blood you drink.
This is my body you eat.
If you would remember me when you eat and drink.

I must be mad thinking I'll be remembered. Yes,
I must be out of my head.
Look at you blank faces. My name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead.
One of you denies me.
One of you betrays me.

APOSTLES
No! Who would?! Impossible!

JESUS
Peter will deny me in just a few hours.
Three times will deny me
And that's not all I see.
One of you here dining,
One of my twelve chosen
Will leave to betray me.

JUDAS
Cut out the dramatics! You know very well who.

JESUS
Why don't you go do it?

JUDAS
You want me to do it!?

JESUS
Hurry, they are waiting.

JUDAS
If you knew why I do it!

JESUS
I don't care why you do it!

JUDAS
To think I admired you!
For now I despise you!

JESUS
You liar! You Judas.

JUDAS
You want me to do it!
What if I just stayed here
And ruined your ambitions
Christ you deserve it!

JESUS
Hurry, you fool. Hurry and go.
Save me your speeches, I don't want to know. GO! Go!

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine.
What's that in the bread? It's gone to my head
Till this evening is this morning life is fine.

Always hoped that I'd be an apostle.
Knew that I could make it if I tried.
Then when we retire, we can write the Gospels,
So they'll all talk about us when we've died.

JUDAS
You sad, pathetic man, see where you've brought us to.
Our ideals die around us all because of you.
And the saddest cut of all:
Someone had to turn you in.
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal.
A jaded mandarin
A jaded mandarin
A jaded, faded, jaded, faded, jaded mandarin.

JESUS
Get out they are waiting!
Oh, they are waiting!
They are waiting for you!

JUDAS
Everytime I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand.
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned....

APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine.
Don't disturb me now. I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine.

Always hoped that I'd be an apostle.
Knew that I could make it if I tried.
Then when we retire, we can write the Gospels,
So they'll all talk about us when we've died.

Gethsemane

JESUS
Will no one stay awake with me?
Peter? John? James?
Will none of you wait with me?
Peter? John? James?

I only want to say,
If there is a way,
Take this cup away from me.
For I don't want to taste its poison,
Feel it burn me.
I have changed.
I'm not as sure, as when we started.

Then, I was inspired.
Now, I'm sad and tired.
Listen, surely, I've exceeded expectations,
Tried for three years, seems like thirty.
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die,
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me,
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree.

I'd want to know, I'd want to know, My God,
I'd want to see, I'd want to see, My God,
Why I should die.
Would I be more noticed that I ever was before?
Would the things that I've said and done matter any more?

I have to know, I have to know my Lord,
I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord,
If I die what will be my reward?
I'd have to know, I'd have to know my Lord
Why should I die?
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain.
Show me there's a reason for you wanting me to die
You're far to keen and where and how, and not so hot on why.

Alright, I'll die!
Just watch me die!
See how I die!

Then, I was inspired.
Now, I'm sad and tired.
After all, I've tried for three years, seems like ninety.
Why then am I scared to finish, what I've started....
What you started - I didn't start it!

God, thy will is hard,
But you hold every card.
I will drink your cup of poison.
Nail me to the cross and break me.
Bleed me, Beat me, Kill me
Take me now - before I change my mind!

The Arrest

JUDAS
There he is! They're all asleep -- the fools.

JESUS
Judas, must you betray me with a kiss?

PETER
What's the buzz?
Tell me what's happening.

PETER and JOHN
What's the buzz?
Tell me what's happening.
Hang on Lord,
We're going to fight for you!

JESUS
Put away your sword
Don't you know that it's all over?
It was nice, but now it's gone.
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on.

CHOIR
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight.
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Do you think you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men proved at all worth while?

Come with us to see Caiaphas!
You'll just love the High Priest's house.
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas!
You'll just die in the High Priest's house.
Come on God this is not like you.
Let us know what you're going to do.
You know what you're supporter's feel;
You'll escape in the final reel.

Tell me Christ how you feel tonight.
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?

Come with us to see Caiaphas.
You'll just love the High Priest's house.
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas.
You'll just die in the High Priest's house.

Now we have him!
Now we've got him!

The Trial

CAIAPHAS
Jesus, you must realize the serious charges facing you.
You say your the Son of God in all your handouts...
Well, is it true?

JESUS
That's what you say, you say that I am.

ANNAS
There you have it gentlemen.
What more evidence do we need?
Judas, thank you for the victim.
Stay a while and you'll see it bleed!

CHOIR
Now we have him!
Now we have got him!
Take him to Pilate! Take him to Pilate!

Peter's Denial

CHOIR WOMAN
I think I've seen you somewhere!
I remember -
You were with that man they took away.
I recognized your face.

PETER
You've got the wrong man lady.
I don't know him,
And I wasn't where he was tonight -
Never near the place.

FIRST CHOIR MAN
That's strange, for I am sure I saw you with him.
You were right by his side, and yet you denied.

PETER
I tell you I was never with him

SECOND CHOIR MAN
But I saw you too. It looked just like you.

PETER
I don't know him!

MARY MAGDALENE
Peter, don't you know what you have said?
You've gone and cut him dead.

PETER
I had to do it, don't you see?
Or else they'd go for me.

MARY MAGDALENE
It's what he told us you would do.
I wonder how he knew.

Pilate and Jesus

PILATE
Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway?
Who is this unfortunate?

CAIAPHAS
Someone Christ, King of the Jews.

PILATE
Oh, so this is Jesus Christ,
I am really quite surprised.
You look so small
Not a King at all.
We all know that you are news,
But are you King? King of the Jews?

JESUS
That's what you say.

PILATE
What do you mean by that?
That is not an answer.
You're deep in trouble friend.
Someone Christ, King of the Jews.

How can someone in you state
Be so cool about his fate?
An amazing thing,
This silent King.
Since you come from Galilee,
Then you need not come to me.
You're Herod's race -
You're Herod's case!

CHOIR
Hosanna Heysanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho and how
Hey JC, JC please explain to me?
You had everything. Where is it now?

King Herod's Song

HEROD
Jesus, I am overjoyed to meet you face to face.
You've been getting quite a name all around the place.
Healing cripples. Raising from the dead.
And now I understand you're God.
At least, that's what you've said.

So, you are the Christ.
You're the great Jesus Christ.
Prove to me that you're divine;
Change my water into wine.
That's all you need do,
And I'll know it's all true.
Come on, King of the Jews.

Jesus, you just won't believe the hit you've made around here.
You are all we talk about, the wonder of the year.
Oh what a pity if it's all a lie.
Still, I'm sure that you can rock the cynics if you try.

So, you are the Christ.
You're the great Jesus Christ.
Prove to me that you're no fool;
Walk across my swimming pool.
If you do that for me,
Then I'll let you go free.
Come on, King of the Jews.

I only ask things I'd ask any superstar.
What is it that you have got that puts you where you are?
I am waiting, yes, I'm a captive fan.
I'm dying to be shown that you are not just any man.

So, if you are the Christ,
Yes, the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread.
You can do it on your head.
Or has something gone wrong?
Why do you take so long?
Come on, King of the Jews!

Hey!
Aren't you scared of me Christ?
Mr. Wonderful Christ?
You're a joke. You're not the Lord.
You're nothing but a fraud.
Take him away.
He's got nothing to say!
Get out you King of the Jews!
Get out of my life!

Could We Start Again Please?

MARY MAGDALENE
I've been living to see you.
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected. What do I do now?
Could we start again please?

I've been very hopeful so far.
Now for the first time I think we're going wrong.
Hurry up and tell me this is just a dream.
Could we start again please?

PETER
I think you've made your point now.

MARY MAGDALENE AND PETER
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.

PETER
Before it gets too frightening, we ought to call a halt.
So could we start again please?

MARY MAGDALENE
Could we start again, please?

PETER
I've been living to see you.
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected. What do I do now?
Could we start again please?

MARY MAGDALENE
Could we start again, please?

PETER
I think you've made your point now.

CHOIR
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.
Before it gets too frightening, we ought to call a halt.
So could we start again please?

MARY MAGDALENE
Could we start again, please?

CHOIR
I've been living to see you.
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected. What do I do now?
Could we start again please?

PETER
Could we start again, please?

CHOIR
Could we start again, please?

MARY MAGDALENE
Could we start again, please?

CHOIR
Could we start again, please?

ALL
Could we start again?

Judas' Death

JUDAS
My God! I saw him. He looked three-quarters dead!
And he was so bad I had to turn my head.
You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame,
And I know who everybody's going to blame.
I don't believe he knows I acted for our good.
I'd save him all this suffering if I could.
Don't believe for our good
And I'd save him, if I could!

ANNAS
Cut the confessions. Forget the excuses.
I don't understand why you're filled with remorse.
All that you've said has come true with a vengeance.
The mob turned against him. You backed the right horse.

CAIAPHAS
What you have done will be the saving of Israel.
You'll be remembered forever for this.
And not only that, you've been paid for your efforts.
Pretty good wages for one little kiss.

JUDAS
Christ, I know you can't hear me,
But I only did what you wanted me to.
Christ, I'd sell out the nation,
For I have been saddled with the murder of you.

I have been splattered with innocent blood.
I shall be dragged through the slime and mud.
I have been splattered with innocent blood.
I shall be dragged through the slime and the slime and the slime and the mud!

I don't know how to love him.
I don't know why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
He is not a King. He is just the same
As any one I know.
He scares me so!

When he's cold and dead will he let me be?
Does he love me too? Does he care for me?

My mind is in darkness now.
My God, I am sick. I've been used.
And you knew, all the time.
God, I will never know why you chose me...
for your bloody crime... your foul bloody crime.
You have murdered me! Murdered me! Murdered me!
Murdered me! Murdered me! Murdered...

JESUS
So long Judas.
Poor old Judas.

Trial Before Pilate

PILATE
And so the King is once again my guest.
And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?

CAIAPHAS
We turned to Rome to sentence Nazareth.
We have no law to put a man to death.
We need him crucified. It's all you have to do.
We need him crucified. It's all you have to do.

PILATE
Talk to me Jesus Christ.
You have been brought here
Manacled and beaten by your own people.
Do you have the faintest idea why you deserve it?
Listen King of the Jews,
Where is your kingdom?
Look at me. Am I a Jew?

JESUS
I have no kingdom in the world I'm through.

CHOIR
Talk to me Jesus Christ

JESUS
There may be a kingdom for me somewhere. If I only knew.

PILATE
Then you are a King?

JESUS
It's you that say I am.
I look for truth and find that I get damned.

PILATE
But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths. Are mine the same as yours?

CHOIR
Crucify him! Crucify him!

PILATE
What do you mean? You'd crucify your King?

CHOIR
We have no King but Ceaser!

PILATE
He's done no wrong. No, not the slightest thing.

CHOIR
We have no King but Ceaser! Crucify him!

PILATE
I see no reason. I find no evil.
This man is harmless, so why does he upset you?
He's just misguided, thinks he's important.
But to keep you vultures happy I shall flog him!

CHOIR
Crucify him! Crucify him!

39 LASHES

PILATE
Where are you from Jesus?
What do you want Jesus?
Tell me.
You've got to be careful.
You could be dead soon,
Could well be.
Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands?
How can you stay quiet? I don't believe you understand.

JESUS
You have nothing in your hands.
Any power you have comes to you from far beyond.
Everything is fixed. and you can't change it.

PILATE
You're a fool Jesus Christ! How can I help you?

CHOIR
Pilate, Crucify him!
Remember Ceaser. You have a duty.
To keep the peace, so crucify him!
Remember Ceaser! You'll be demoted!
You'll be deported! Crucify him!

PILATE
Don't let me stop your great self-destruction.
Die if you want to, you misguided martyr!
I wash my hands of you demolition.
Die if you want to, you innocent puppet!

Superstar

FIRST CHOIR MAN
Everytime I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you do get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned.
Why'd you choose such a backward time in such a strange land?
If you'd come today you would have reached the whole nation.
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication.
Don't get me wrong now. Don't get me wrong. Don't get me wrong.
I only want to know...

CHOIR
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

SECOND CHOIR MAN
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top.
Who'd you think besides yourself's the pick of the crop?
Buddha, was he where it's at is he where you are?
Could Mahomet move a mountain, or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that? Was that a mistake, or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?
Don't you get me wrong... Don't get me wrong now. Don't get me wrong.
I only want to know...

CHOIR
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

The Crucifixion

JESUS
God, forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing.
Who is my mother? Where is my mother?
My God! My God, why have you forgotten me?
I am thirsty
It is finished.
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
