Did you see I waved? I believe in you and God so tell me that I’m saved.
Against the backdrop of corporate America and the Occupy Wall Street movement, the story of a social and political rebel in a time of turmoil rings true again. What better way to tell that story than to use a parallel of contemporary celebrity worship that the western world is very familiar with.
What then to do about this Jesus-mania? Miracle wonder-man - hero of fools. No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans –one thing to say for him, Jesus is cool.
As Jesus’ radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity and thought-provoking edge, propelled by a stirring score that is by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender to illuminate the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
If you’d come today you would have reached a whole nation.
