Brings the Gospel of John from the Bible to new life Apr 30, 2010
I must say "The Gospel of John" brings the Bible to new life. The acting is superb and Henry Ian Cusick does a fantastic job of portraying Jesus Christ. The entire gospel including the Passion of Jesus is acted out so beautifully. In my opinion, the movie is the most biblically acurate portrayal of John's gospel. Furthermore, the music in the film is beautifully orchestrated by composer Jeff Danna. I have the CD soundtrack from the film and play it often. The music is very original. Also the soundtrack is moving and exciting in parts and serene and peaceful in other parts of the film. I love music and the music helps me get more out of the movie. I have read the Gospel of John in my Bible and after watching the movie, this book of the bible makes so much more sense and is so easy to understand. There is the 3-hour original word-for-word version and then there is the 2-hour highlight version. In my opinion, watching the movie will move you closer to Christ. The 2 hour highlight version is great for people who dont want to sit through the full 3 hour version. Im very much a visual person and seeing something that relates to or depicts something I have read solidifies what I have read in my mind. The Gospel of John is my favorite book of the Bible because to me, its the easiest to understand. However, seeing the movie "The Gospel of John" brings this book of the Bible to new life. The movie is based on the American Bible Society's Good News Bible. However, you can still follow along in any version of the Bible you might have. The movie is narrated by Christopher Plummer and he does and excellent job. I have been a Christian since 1993 and my walk and relationship with Jesus Christ is always moved to a higher level each time I view "The Gospel of John". God Bless!
Excellent and Accurate Mar 29, 2010
This powerful depiction of the Gospel of John follows the Good News Version of the Bible word for word, which happens to be surprisingly like the faithful translation of the English Standard Version. The casting and acting are so well done and flow so naturally with the script and narration by Christopher Plummer, that John's testimony comes wondrously alive. The portrayal of Jesus by Henry Ian Cusick is masterful, sensitive, and realistic--passionate but not overly 'dramatic', sensitive but not weak--always displaying the appropriate strength of character expected of the Messiah, the Son of God.
Besides the faithful portrayal of the Gospel, the DVD 2-disc set has very useful features including scene selection by Chapter and Verse, footnotes (when this feature is turned on), and maps. There is not only the three-hour full theatrical version, but a 2-hour version, which along with the helpful study tools, make this epic film-set powerful for group study, yet perfect for personal and rewarding immersion in the Word. For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, it is a dynamic faith-builder.

This is an awesome rendition of the Gospel of John. YOu can sit with your bible in front of you and watch this movie and learn so much. I recommand this for anyone children and families, church youth groups and adults or Anyone doing a detailed study in the book of John. I really gained a visual and beautiful understanding of Jesus my Lord and Saviour. I watched with my kids and they couldn't remove their eyes from the tv. ALso a very excellent quality of film sound and acting. I pray I am able to find other gospels so well done.
