The Temple

The image is more significant than the lyrics.I mean stronger;we can see meat, guns, drugs, vicious, women in cages not like prisoners but like offers.
People betting, trading, Tv showing wars...
And Jesus with a face of displeasure, with disgust, and really angry.
He threw the people out of the temple, he said "My temple should be a house of prayer but you have made it a den of thieves.Get out!!!
Get out!!!" Just how in the Gospels.
We're really impressed by the scene.

Best wishes

Hello Federico and Ignacio. I am sure you were really impressed by the visual aspect of this scene.

I have not seen the movie but from what you described, it seems like a sort of mixed version of Christ´s final days with elements that unfortunately are too common in our daily lives nowadays: TV sets, wars and guns.

You are doing an excellent job. Regards from an EFL teacher in Caracas.

Hi Feche and Nacho,
I love this movie and make a point to watch it every year at Easter. In the scene you describe, I find it interesting also to look at the items in the market as a flashback or reminder of the 70s.

Do you think this scene was the turning point when the people started to dislike Jesus?

I will follow your blog with interest...
Regards from Canada,

My thoughts exactly. The one thing that this opera does so well is to pull your emotions from with scenes like the temple scene. I have seen the movie many times as well as the stage production. If you think the film moves you, I can only hope that someday you will be able to watch the stage production. Though the stage production doesn't tour anymore, P.B.S. has the stage version available on DVD. If you ever get the chance to see it, I would stongly recommend it.

As soon as I began reading your post, my head started singing some of the songs. I love this play, the lyrics, and the melodies. What's the buzz, tell me what is happening....... Thanks for bringing back memories.

I could say that this is such a good scene-because it is- but I prefer talking about the whole play,that means a shame to christian people, who trust God and love him.
My disappointment resides in the point of view that gospels is taken. I think Judas betrayed Jesus and he deserved dead. He had no reason to be resented. He shouldn´t have been the main character of this film.
