Act 1, Scene 7 Summary

Outside the council chambers, Jesus's multitude of followers, including children, sing "Hosanna" as they wave signs that say "Jesus" at the top, with his picture in the middle, and "rule" at the bottom. As he is held up by his followers, Caiaphas and Annas appear on the second level and ask Jesus to disperse the crowd. He replies that if the crowd were quiet, "the rocks and stones themselves would start to sing." Judas is seen leaning against a wall, shaking his head. Jesus, on the ground now, cannot stop the adoration of the crowd. He is surrounded by children, then climbs to the upper level with Mary Magdalene and Judas and Peter as the followers sing "Hosanna," asking Jesus to fight for his followers as "Superstar."
