Final stray thought.
Could this be a "mockery" of a traditional Roman triumph, specifically that awarded to Titus after the sack of Jerusalem? I mean, of we interpret other passages in terms of those events, why not this one?
That's what Borg and Crossan thought. That this was a counter-cultural protest, designed to highlight the upside down nature of God's kin-dom.
(P.S. The character singing with Caiaphas is Annas, another chief priest. P3, cannot believe you've never seen Superstar. I have seen/heard almost every version made. My absolute fav is the "Arena" live version that toured the U.K. I know every word of every song by heart. )
