Jesus Christ Superstar 1973 (8)   Leave a comment

Ei bine, arestarea decurge fara probleme, datorita sarutului lui Iuda si a somnului fara griji al apostolilor. Devenit un simplu ostatec, toata aura sa misterioasa dispare si multimea (majoritara, deh !) il batjocoreste odata ce-l vede cazut de pe presupusul piedestal. Dus la judecata religioasa a Sinedriului, nu se pot scoate prea multe de la el, asa ca este trimis la guvernatorul Pilat – cel care avea autoritatea civila de a stabili si aplica pedepse.

Urmeaza scena lepadarii lui Petru – cu atat mai dureroasa cu cat era considerat cel mai apropiat discipol. Intamplarea, dealtfel o reactie umana fireasca, ridica inca o data semne de intrebare privind credibilitatea lui Isus in ochii discipolilor…

In fine, Isus ajunge si la Pilat, nici acesta nereusind sa scoata ceva compromitator de la el, si considerand ca este vorba de ceva „afaceri interne”, il trimite la Irod Antipa – regele oficial al Iudeei ocupate de romani.

PS: Youtube a sters clipurile initiale, n-am mai gasit decat partea judecatii lui Pilat, cat o mai dura si asta …

JESUS

Judas, must you betray me with a kiss?

PETER

What’s the buzz?
Tell me what’s happening. (Repeat a few times)

PETER AND APOSTLES

What’s the buzz?
Tell me what’s a-happening.
Hang on, Lord,
We’re going to fight for you! (Repeat)

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.

CROWD

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 that 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 supporters 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 have got him!
Now we have him!
Now we have got him!
Now we have him!
Now we have got him!
Now we have him!
Now we have got him!
Now we have him!
Now we have got him!

CAIAPHAS

Jesus, you must realize the serious charges facing you.
You say you’re 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 him bleed!

CROWD

Now we have him!
Now we’ve got him! (Repeat 4 times)

Take him to Pilate! (Repeat 4 times)
********

MAID BY THE FIRE

I think I’ve seen you somewhere.
I remember.
You were with that man they took away.
I recognize 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.

SOLDIER

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

PETER

I tell you I was never with him.

OLD MAN

But I saw you too.
He 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

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

SOLDIER

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

Your words, not mine.

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 your 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!

MOB

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

Nici Irod Antipa (era unul din fiii lui Irod cel Mare, cel despre care se spune ca ar fi ordonat uciderea copiilor sub 2 ani din Iudeea !) nu descopera la ce paragraf sa-l incadreze pe Isus, pentru el fiind doar unul din numerosii profeti autodeclarati care colindau tara in acele tulburi vremuri de ocupatie. Isus este trimis inapoi la preoti.

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, then 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 tried.
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 what 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. Jesus, why do you take so long?
Oh 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 are nothing but a fraud.
Take him away.
He’s got nothing to say!
Get out you King of the,
Get out King of the,
Oh get out you King of the Jews!
Get out of here!
Get out of here you,
Get out of my life.
