John Legend is gearing up for his performance Sunday night in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” show by staying away from food.

Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, shared that he will have a shirtless scene during the live show, which has pushed the Grammy and Oscar winner to tighten up his diet. – Page 6

Demons don’t mind individuals singing about Jesus provided the attention is upon their evil selves. (Acts 16:17)

John Legend who play-acts Jesus blasphemes in matters he does not understand, like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish. (2 Peter 2:12)

Forget Jesus Christ Superstar as it is counterproductive to the image of Jesus God desires to work in repentant sinners.

If one thinks “playing Jesus was easy” try real Christianity rather than the mish-mash of Cultural Christianity. You will discover not only your complete weakness but the power of God surging in your life.

Like so many who claim the Name, Jesus Christ Superstar is in error for two reasons.

Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.” (Matthew 22:29)


 For its latest one-night-only Broadway musical event, NBC is bringing “Jesus Christ Superstar Live!” to our television screens on Easter Sunday, April 1 — and they’re going big. The latest update on Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s 1970 rock opera classic stars 10-time Grammy- (and Tony-) winning John Legend as Jesus of Nazareth, six-time Grammy- (and Tony-) nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene and shock-rock legend Alice Cooper as King Herod. Behind the scenes, the pedigree is just as impressive, with direction by five-time Tony nominee David Leveaux and costumes by Paul Tazewell, who, in 2016, won an Emmy for “The Wiz Live!” and a Tony for this one musical — maybe you’ve heard of it? — called “Hamilton.” …”We go into this blown-out Vegas number,” continues Tazewell. “Like your huge Beyoncé concert — or John Legend concert, if you will.”

Well, you said it: “We go into this blown-out Vegas number,”

For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:37)

(—There is a fundamental audacity to Jesus Christ Superstar, which was staged as a live “concert” performance on NBC on Sunday night. First released as a concept album in 1970, the work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice not only imagines a very human story behind the final days in the life of Jesus, but it focuses on that story even when it involves ugliness, vanity, and conflict. It posits that Jesus felt not only frustration, but even resentment and ambivalence — not only about his faith, but about his own followers. On the one hand, it’s kind of an obvious choice for Easter. On the other hand, maybe not. (There have been Christians who have found it blasphemous for a variety of reasons.) – NPR
