Product Description

Product Description

An epic in the spirit of THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, this widely acclaimed motion picture is a meticulous recreation of the turbulent era of Jesus and the events that changed the course of history! Narrated by Golden Globe nominee Christopher Plummer (Best Supporting Actor, AMERICAN TRAGEDY, 2000), it's the bold and powerful story of Jesus as told by his disciple John. The best-loved but least understood of the gospels, John presents a uniquely human portrait of courage and passion encompassing Jesus' entire three-year ministry, the final years of his life. Intimate and reflective, THE GOSPEL OF JOHN offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the incomparable life and times of Jesus Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done piece on John March 16 2004
If you are looking for an accurate version of the gospel of John, then this is your DVD. It's well acted and enjoyable to watch. It's a little long to see in one sitting--it's some three hours in length--but what's nice about the DVD is that you can shut it off and come back next time. This is the entire gospel, or 21 biblical chapters in total. It beats reading it on your own, and in three hours you have lived through a book of the Bible! Henry Ian Cusick is a bit serious for the part, as I'm not convinced Jesus was as dour as he portrays, but generally he does a fine job. The crucifixion portrayl is nowhere near as graphic as The Passion of the Christ, yet the DVD box says that it receives a "PG-13" rating because of "violence involving the crucifixion." However, I had no problem letting my three young girls see this film in the theater.
One minor criticism is the choice of Bible translation that was used, which was the Good News Bible. I'm wondering why a translation like the readable NIV wasn't utilized. The NIV was used in the Matthew videos, and I just think it reads much better. The weakest chapter was the reading of John 1, which was disappointing, to say the least. Otherwise, this is a fine film and is worth the price to keep this set in your library. I also recommend the Matthew videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A deeply moving masterpiece. May 24 2004
"The Gospel of John" is one of the best films I seen during the last few years. As a word-for-word interpretation of the gospel from the Good News Bible, TGOJ gives a faithful representation of the Gospel According to John. Henry Ian Cusick, I believe, is one of the best actors ever to play Jesus (ranking in the company of Robert Powell in "Jesus of Nazareth" and "The Passion of the Christ's" Jim Caviezel), and Christopher Plummer's narration is also powerful. I know it's been noted here before, but I'll go ahead and say it again anyway: TGOJ and "The Passion..." make great companion films to each other, with one film focusing on the crucifixion of Jesus and the hours leading up to it, while the other movie focusing on His life, teachings and ministry. Both movies are great, although I would have loved to have seen TGOJ get as much exposure as "The Passion."

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept an eleven-year-old boy spellbound! Dec 11 2008
By Anthea
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wanted to show my nephew the first few minutes of this film - the moving first verses of the Gospel of John - just to ask him what he thought it meant (he does not attend any church). I turned it off as we talked. "Can't we watch any more of it?" he asked. He continued to watch, absolutely spellbound, for two hours. I was so thrilled that he was getting this excellent introduction to Jesus! I, myself, have found this film very moving.

My only concern as I watch it is the placement of a very beautiful Mary Magdalene in scenes in which her presence is not mentioned in the gospel. There seems to be an implication in the film that she and Jesus are more than just disciple and master.

Jesus asked his disciples to leave their families and homes to follow him, so it seems to put him in a hypocritical postition (to say the least) to imply that he himself wasn't willing to do the same. I feel it is unfortunate that the director chose to confuse viewers in this way.

Otherwise, this is an excellent effort to help people to connect with the Gospel of John.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Production! Feb. 7 2012
This is a well produced movie that does an excellent job in bringing the book of John to life. The interaction with Jesus with the Pharasise shows the conflict and unacceptance of his message in a believable interaction.

The narration helps fill in the gaps for what is not spoken. The actor playing Jesus does an excellent job portraying him as a man who loves his opponents and is pleading with them to understand why he came. He doesnt portray him as a man who "acts" holy like Charleton Heston does with his Moses portrayal. He is very believable in the role.

Overall an excellent movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Feast April 5 2004
By Alex
Jesus the Messiah is portrayed as God's joyous, loving, and forgiving Son in Director Philip Saville's "The Gospel of John." The film, as the title suggests, is based on the fourth gospel which is the preferred scriptural text in the Eastern Orthodox Church. The East emphasizes life, resurrection, and redemption. Hence the film is a stark contrast from Mel Gibson's Catholic theological emphasis of suffering in "The Passion."
Nominated this year for two Genie Awards, the primary national film award of Canada, The Gospel of John is needlessly repetitive. The screen writer (John Goldsmith) needed some editorial assistance.
The actors, however, offer solid performances. Jesus (Henry Ian Cusick) beams with friendship, good cheer, and acceptance. Even when he chides the apostles for disbelief or for being dense Jesus does so in a nurturing way. The actor possessed an aura or presence that made Jesus unique - of this world and yet of another. John the Baptist (Scott Handy), although a small role, is brilliantly and memorably portrayed as a mysterious, contemplative prophet. The film is woven together by the rich, Shakespearean trained voice of narrator Christopher Plummer.
A few colleagues with whom I attended a showing thought the cinematography muddy. There's merit to the criticism that some scenes were too narrowly focused. It didn't, however, disrupt my overall enjoyment of the film. The opening scene is well done - the morning sun rising with Plummer narrating, "In the beginning was the Word." There are similar well-crafted scenes. The narration and dialogue of the actors, massaged with several additions, had an almost poetic ring.

The movie has tasteful, realistic depictions of the life of Jesus without high drama.
