Sympathy For the Devil

Jesus Christ Superstar does a pretty decent job of giving Judas’ side of the story.  And it does so without absolving him.

It’s so easy to miss the point.

So easy to rationalize.

And then to drown in guilt you try to disavow.  It’s only at the very end that he begins to grasp what really happened.

“And you knew! All the time!”

He doesn’t seem really learn much of use to him from this revelation.  He could have.
