This is primarily because much of the dramatic action, and virtually the entire action of the first act, is sub-textual. The text of Act One is, after all, essentially just a series of lessons and parables in what appears to be no particular order. And while Act Two essentially follows the Passion story, with such familiar scenes as the interrogation of Jesus by the Pharisees, the Last Supper, Gethsemene, and so on, it is still interspersed with stories and teachings. So it is easy for the show to appear formless, or worse, for the ten performers to degenerate into ten stand-up comics vying with one another for laughs and attention. This happens through the playing of games and the telling and absorption of lessons, and each of the eight individuals has his or her own moment of committing to Jesus and to the community. But the internal journey of each character is separate and takes its individual course and period of time.

I am most in majesty, In whom no beginning may be and no end. Highest in potency I am, And have been ever. I have made stars and planets in their courses to go. I have made a moon for the night and a sun to light the day also. I have made earth where trees and grasses spring, Beasts and fowl, both great and small, all thrive and have my liking.

For know that this is the command of God; and I believe that no greater good has ever happened in the state than my service to the God. For I do nothing but go about persuading you all, young and old alike, not to take thought for your persons or properties, but first and chiefly to take care about the greatest improvement of the soul.
This is my teaching and if this is the doctrine which corrupts the youth, then I am a mischievous person. But if anyone says that this is not my teaching, he is speaking an untruth. ADAM F - Martin Luther God almighty has made our rulers mad God almighty has turned our people bad For the German nobility, with typical agility, Have so applied their skill at egregious laws That the people are lead astray; they feel beholden to obey I may be just the German way, but God, it gives one pause.
I know that I am not a category I am not a thing - a noun I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process- An integral function of the universe. Prepare ye the way of the Lord! Who warned you to escape from the coming retribution? Then prove your repentance by the fruit it bears; and do not presume to say to yourselves, "We have Abraham for our father.
Already the axe is laid to the fruit of the trees; and any tree which fails to produce good fruit is cut down thrown on the fire. I baptize you with water, for repentance; but He who comes after me is mightier than I.

Matt P No, no. Look, let it be so for the present; we do well now to conform with all that God requires. O God of mercy when? The people, Lord, the people; Not thrones and crowns, but men!
Flowers of thy heart, O God are they; Let them not pass, like weeds, away, Their heritage a sunless day: God save the people! Shall crime breed crime forever, Strength aiding still the strong?

God save the people, save us, for thine they are Thy children as thy angels fair Save the people God save the people From despair God save the people!
I tell you this: so long as heaven and earth endure not a letter, not a stroke, will disappear from the Law until all that must happen has happened. But he who keeps the law and teaches others so, he will have the highest place in the kingdom of Heaven.
I tell you this, unless you show yourselves far better men than the Pharisees and the doctors of the Law Callum.

Godspell Libretto [2012Revival]
Godspell A Musical based upon the Gospel according to St. Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. And yet it is something more - a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man. The story: A group of 10 young people gather in a playground surrounded by a high wire fence. To stress their ordinariness, they are called by the first names of the actors. They carry with them a box filled with clothes. The leader kicks off with a quotation appropriate to his T-shirt, and the others follow in turn with the accumulated enlightenment of the ages.
The song consists of the eight disciples or soloists acting out as philosophers, each singing about their various philosophies. They grow increasingly more irritated with each other, sing in contradiction, and eventually run out of words. Ron Hubbard , and Marianne Williamson , respectively. On many early cast recordings, including the original off-Broadway recording and the original London recording, the prologue was omitted in order to produce an album that could sell as a pop album. This omission was for marketing purposes and was not meant to diminish the importance of the number, as Stephen Schwartz has repeatedly stated.
