Publishers Description Imprisoned, John, the last living disciple of Jesus' twelve, remains full of humor, strong in spirit and obstinately spry. Through his eyes we relive the moving events in which Jesus Christ changed the course of human history.
Community Description Dean Jones is mesmerizing in his portrayal of the apostle John at a pivotal point in history. It's 96 A.D., and scores of Christians have been massacred all over the Roman Empire. John is the last living disciple of Jesus, but he's an 86-year-old man who's been forced to spend his remaining days imprisoned in a cave on Patmos. Despite this fact, he refuses to give up and subsequently changes the future path of humankind.

Incredible performance Nov 30, 1999
The performance by Dean Jones in this 90 minute monologue is such that he will have you laughing at pulling locust legs from his teeth one moment and only a minute later in tears reliving the martyrdom of the apostles. Everyone I have shown it to has said nearly the same thing when they first realized they were going to watch one actor speak for 90 minutes "This is boring" and within 5 minutes they are glued to the presentation and in need of the intermission just because of the emotional depths they have traversed.
Powerfully Profound! Nov 30, 1999
I have a vast range of experience and beliefs about spirituality. When I recommend a product, it is because it touches my soul and makes a difference in people's lives. This production is the finest of it's genre and I share it often with Christians, but especially with non-Christians - because it captures the essense of the EXPERIENCE of Christ's love versus the BELIEF in Christ's teachings - it IS the soul behind the beliefs. It is a glimpse of the profound, lifechanging influence that discovering your heart and knowing that you are unconditionally loved can make in your life and the lives of others. I use this as my witness - there is no need for more. Dean Jones truely allowed his soul to shine through the words and he is absolutely brilliant in his portrayal of St. John. I believe this was Mr. Jones finest performance. I have been blessed to have discovered this tool and this masterpiece.
This is a masterwork! Nov 30, 1999
This is a masterwork by anyone's standards. From the excellent script, filled with laugh-out-loud humor to the deepest passion; to the technical production and direction, this is absolutely riveting. It's difficult to find the words to describe Dean Jones' perfomance. It's inspired, passionate, controlled, shocking at times, and shows unsurpassed craftsmanship and artistry. Christians will view it and doubtless take away the deepest feelings and inner thoughts. And anyone else who sees it cannot help but be deeply impressed and transported by the sheer power of this production. It is simply wonderful.
A Must See Movie Nov 30, 1999
I recently watched this movie and found it excellent. Dean Jones was very believeable as St. John. He brought passion and humor to the character. His portrayal of the crucifixion was the best I have ever seen. I would recommend this movie to anyone,whether Christian or not. It gives a good understanding of why the disciples were so willing to follow Jesus, even to death.
And I'd add 5 more stars !! Nov 30, 1999
This rendition of the apostle John's last days is probably the most astounding play/movie I have ever seen. Yes I am a Christian; or I should say I THOUGHT I was, until I saw this. If this does not make the message of Jesus Christ crystal clear to anyone, well-versed in the Bible or not, nothing else will. My son watched it with my husband and I when he was 11 years old. He grew up in a Christian family and even attended a Christian school. We wanted him to have the teachings of the Bible as well as the teachings of the public school system (we were not the type to bad-mouth the public school, we just wanted to fulfill our rights to have our son receive the additional Christian teachings of the Bible). An 11 year old boy, growing up with the stories of the Bible and "Jesus Loves Me", Christmas as Jesus' birthday, Easter as the day Jesus rose from the dead, just as millions of other children have learned over the years going to Sunday school and church. However, after viewing this video, he came crying to us saying "I never knew this! I never knew Jesus sufferred so much FOR ME! I always thought Jesus was protected from all of the pain and sadness because God protected Him. When the Bible says 'Jesus died for ALL of our sins', God meant that! He was suffering for MY sins, he KNEW me when he sufferred, he LOVED me enough to do that so I never have to feel those things! If he had not done that, no matter how 'good' I am for my whole life, I would have had to feel the same pain and being separated from God." That was what an 11 year old boy got out of this awesome portrayal of the last days of John and the story of Jesus. (Awesome is a word I personally reserve for descriptions of things done/said by God Himself and for things done/said in the name of Christ Himself). Some said our son was too young to see "such a scarey portrayal" of the death of Christ. Maybe so for some children, but this is what settled once in for all my son's acception of God's gift; of believing in God and His Word. You can decide when your child is ready after viewing it yourself; don't let others keep you from going with what you know in your heart, and knowing your own children is one thing you have that no one else does.
My TWO videos have been worn completely out and I am now collecting DVD's and VHS' versions to give to friends and even strangers. Yes, it is VERY difficult to get through the beginning of this play, but to ANYONE out there with any doubt, put your doubt aside - I assure you, and I'm sure God approves - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, whether you are a Christian or not. PLEASE do yourself a favor and give up an evening for a remarkable journey that just might make a difference in the path your own life is taking. Even if not converted to Christianity, no one would argue with the message from the Apostle John: "And God commands this: Children, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, as God has shown how he loves you."
