5-16-2016 Jesus Christ, Super

Jesus warned, “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, For so did their fathers to the false prophets” (Luke 6:26 NKJV).  So you knew something bad was happening when the “rock opera” titled, “Jesus Christ Superstar” hit the big screen in 1973.  It dealt with the last 6 days of Jesus’ earthly life, told through the eyes of Judas Iscariot, and treated Jesus as if He were anything other than “super.” It emphasized His humanity without Deity, and ended without His bodily resurrection by which Deity overcame all humanity!  Since that time, children have clamored for some “super hero” who overcomes anything.  Jesus said, “be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 NKJV), and so does “he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God” (1 John 5:5 NKJV).
