Skip to comments.King Nebuchadnezzar And Why He Is The Focus Of Kanye West's Upcoming Opera
Posted on 11/18/2019 12:10:32 PM PST by CondoleezzaProtege
On Sunday, Kanye West took to Twitter to announce an opera. Its titled, Nebuchadnezzar and will be performed at the Hollywood Bowl on November 24th, at 4pm. The announcement notes, Music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song*
As of right now, we dont know what this opera will entail. The most obvious question some may have, though, is: why Nebuchadnezzar?
Overall, one macro takeaway from the story of Nebuchadnezzar is this: you may not think God had anything to do with your success until one day you realize God had everything to do with your success. After the first dream, Nebuchadnezzar respects Gods wisdom. After the furnace, Nebuchadnezzar respects Gods loyalty. And then after his period of madness and loss of title and humanity, he respects Gods power. Its only then that we see Nebuchadnezzar become a true believer.
On October 24th, 2019, the day before the release of his album Jesus Is King, Kanye sat down for a nearly 2-hour interview with Zane Lowe.
37-minutes into the interview, West says, Nebuchadnezzar was the king...And he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this. And God said, Oh, for real? You did this? Sounds kind of similar, right?

Does it include the Bunny Song?
Didn’t know there was such a person. Related to Sim Salabim?
Nebuchaddnezzar is one of a few types in the Bible that represent the Antichrist. Others include Nimrod, Solomon, Pharaoh, Herod, and Judas Iscariot to name a few.
It’s not about big bottles of wine?
Who’s doing the singing in this performance?
Kayne doesn’t have the pipes for opera, unless is going to be a Rap-Rumble that is being called an opera.
Similar to ‘Hamilton’ being called historic.
I think Obama had a God-complex, with this famous "You didn't build that."
Yeah, Kanye writes operas.
Who all is falling for this scam anyway?
I just went to youtube and watched Kanye. Never saw or heard him before.
Very impressive guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivCY3Ec4iaU

I hope he can accomplish what he hopes to with his new music.
Just for the factual historical record... Nebuchadnezzar was not a Muslim, he was a Babylonian before the faith of Islam was born. The first Temple was NOT destroyed by Muslims/Islam.
Solomon an example of the Antichrist? I don’t think so. Old age senility doesn’t make you one.
It’s already been done, Kanye. In 1841, Giuseppe Verdi composed Nabucco.
LOL!! I love the Bunny Song!
Somehow, I doubt it will challenge Giuseppe Verdi’s Nabucco, a masterwork based on the same historical figure. Verdi’s opera includes the unofficial Italian national anthem “Va, pensiero”.
When I was in Seminary in the ‘60s, our musical gospel team traveled to a church in another state. We were in Sunday School and the teacher asked if anyone knew the name of the king Daniel served. She said, “I’ll give you a hint: ‘Nebuchadneeezz....’” She was serious. We had to bite our tongues to keep from laughing.
Kanye West needs to be careful he’s not pushed into selling the ‘prosperity gospel’.
Just saw and posted :)! AWESOME!
