NBC\’s Jesus Christ Superstar – Who Do You Say That I Am? (Renewed Mind Movie Talk)


It\’s been quite some time since I\’ve published one of these, but my latest Renewed Mind Movie Talk video essay is now available!In this episode, I take a look at the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical Jesus Christ Superstar, specifically the live NBC performance aired on Easter Sunday 2018.Raised in a fairly conservative evangelical household, I was told by several people that the rock opera was sacrilegious or blasphemous, so I had never watched it until NBC\’s airing. While I can see my former teachers\’ point, I do think there\’s something worthwhile in the musical\’s refusal to say exactly who Jesus is.With a tip of the hat to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I explain what Christians can learn from many questions about Jesus raised by Jesus Christ Superstar.
