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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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.

Of all the Jesus movies that I have seen (and I have seen almost all of them), Jesus of Nazareth and "The Bible" 4-CD mini-series are still the best ones! Read morePublished 22 months ago by Demetrios Angelis
While bible-story movies are seldom accurate, this movie was better than most. Casting of character of Jesus was good choice.Published on June 15 2014 by Susanna Gale
