Directed by Philip Saville (METROLAND), this lavish production adapts the Gospel According to John, the most unique of the four New Testament Gospels. The material is presented so that each and every word of the text is present either in dialogue or narration (provided by Christopher Plummer). Focusing on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Henry Ian Cusick), GOSPEL OF JOHN utilizes authentic sets and locales, and the music is played on instruments of the period.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I've watched several other gospel-based movies such as "Jesus of Nazareth", "The Jesus Film", etc., but "The Gospel of John" is hands down my favorite so far. It sticks to the text of the gospel, and the acting and scenery help the viewer to understand what's being said and how things probably happened, rather than getting in the way as in some of the other films. The actors and actresses are top notch, coming across as neither Sesame-Street-Smiley nor Stain-Glass-Serious - they have real depth and emotion you'll fall in love with. The costumes and sets were carefully researched to be historically accurate.
This version of the movie comes with 2 DVDs, on is the original 3 hour movie and the other is a shortened 2 hour disc. Go for the 3 hour film. I'm telling you it seems like the movie is over in 45 minutes. One Easter I started watching it again. :)
Can't say enough good about the film. Just buy it and you won't be disappointed.

This Dvd is extreme;y well done and it sticks strickly to the KJV when words are being spoken. Alexander Scourby does the commentary and as always he was excellent. I am using this Dvd as a part an adult Bible study. It is has been extremely well received.
