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.

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.

WHAT A POWERFUL AND MOVING FILM. MADE IN 2003 IT HAD VIRTUALLY GONE UNNOTICED. THERE IS SOMETHING VERY PURE AND GENUINE ABOUT THIS FILM.THIS FILM DOESN'T INSULT THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE VIEWER AS THE MORE RECENT BIG BUDGET HOLLYWOOD FILM THAT DEPICTS THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST WITH ITS GRATUITOUS SCENES OF VIOLENCE. I RENTED THIS DVD AND VIEWED IT WITH MY YOUNG DAUGHTER, AND FELT THAT PEOPLE OF ANY AGE CAN FIND IT INSPIRING.

Using the American Bible Society's Good News Bible, this word-for-word production is meticulous in its detail, and exquisitely acted and filmed. The Gospel of John emphasizes the divinity of Jesus, and has some of the best loved passages of scripture, and perhaps the most well known verse in the New Testament, John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life".
The superb cinematography, the authenticity of the costumes and sets, and the marvelous acting make this production a must in every Christian film library, and it would also make an excellent teaching tool.
Henry Ian Cusick is brilliant as Jesus; an actor with extensive theatrical credits and a varied life experience, being born in Peru, raised in Trinidad and Scotland, and now living in England. He has a face of depth and beauty, with much expressiveness and a voice that is a joy to listen to. There are scenes with a wide range of emotion, from the sensitivity before the raising of Lazarus, to the driving out of the money changers with passion and rage. This is a strong, vital Jesus, not the ethereal slender man that is sometimes depicted in films, and one that I am sure is more like the Jesus of history.
Other splendid performances come from Scott Handy as John the Baptist, Daniel Kash as Simon Peter, Richard Lintern as the Leading Pharisee, and Stephen Russell as Pontius Pilate.
The narration by Christopher Plummer is masterful.
The lovely outdoor locations were filmed in Southern Spain, and the score by Jeff Danna, using native instruments, is wonderful, and includes the ney, a middle-eastern flute, and an ancient fiddle called a rebab.

"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."

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.
