Please share with the group one of the following; your favorite book in the Bible, your favorite character in the Bible, or your favorite biblically based movie.
I decided to share my favorite biblically based movie with you since it is the first thing that popped in my head.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Tim Rice. First staged on Broadway in 1971, it highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus. The opera is based very loosely on the Gospels' account of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem, and ending with the Crucifixion. It was then made into a movie in 1973.
I remember going to see the play with my mom and sister about 10 or so years ago in Baltimore, MD. I also have the soundtrack and enjoy listening to it from time to time. If the musical ever comes to your area, I highly recommend seeing it. The video shows Jesus entering Jerusalem and features the song "Hosanna". By the way, did you know that the Greek word Hosanna means, 'please save us'?
