   /                          /  This is where Caiaphas and his priests realize
  /  This Jesus Must Die     /  the 'danger' of Jesus and the rebellion he might
 /  Jesus Christ Superstar  /  start, and where they decide that this Jesus must
/__________________________/  die. The chords of the last parts are just superb!
