It started as a rock opera album musical before its Broadway on-stage debut in The musical is sung-through , with no spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus ' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible. The work's depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and other characters. Much of the plot centres on Judas, who is dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus is steering his disciples. Contemporary attitudes, sensibilities and slang pervade the rock-opera's lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of political events. Stage and film productions accordingly contain many intentional anachronisms. Judas Iscariot , one of the Twelve Apostles , worries that the followers of Jesus are getting out of control and may be seen as a threat by the Roman Empire , who might harshly suppress them " Heaven on Their Minds ". The other apostles anticipate going to Jerusalem with Jesus and ask him about his plans, but Jesus tells them not to worry about the future " What's the Buzz ".

The film begins with them arriving on a bus, assembling their props and getting into costume. One of the group is surrounded by the others, puts on a white robe and emerges as Jesus "Overture". This story, as told by the performance group, begins with Judas, who is worried about Jesus' popularity; he is being hailed as the Son of God, but Judas feels he is just a man who is beginning to believe his own message and fears the consequences of their growing movement "Heaven on Their Minds". The other disciples badger Jesus for information about his plans for the future, but Jesus will not give them any "What's the Buzz? Judas' arrival and subsequent declaration that Jesus should not associate with Mary Magdalene dampens the mood "Strange Thing Mystifying". Angrily, Jesus tells Judas that he should leave Mary alone, because his slate is not clean. He then accuses all the apostles of not caring about him. That night at the Temple, Caiaphas is worried that the people will crown Jesus as king, which the Romans will take for an uprising.
