Jesus Christ Superstar (2) – Simon Zealotes

A spirited dance led by Simon Zealotes, glorifying Jesus whom they believe has come to rescue the suffering Israelites from Roman rule. Much to their shock, Christ admonishes them with his words, “Neither you Simon, nor the Jews, nor the scribes, nor the pharisees, nor does Jerusalem itself understand what glory is, understand what power is, understand at all….” – unfortunately, this last, crucial scene has been edited from the clip. Nonetheless, the song still carries a message of hope, even if in the final analysis, a misguided one.
