Our bible study group watched this (in two sessions) after we completed our study of John. This uses ONLY scripture so we were completely familiar with it as we had just read it all in our study. We were blown away with the way this brought to life what we had read. The difference between a dramatization based on the Bible and this one which IS the bible is profound. We couldn't get over how much we learned. The actor who plays Jesus is excellent-- the best I've ever seen in the role.
Word for word the book of John acted out. Enjoyable and fun family view. Removes some stereotypical images from your mind that you get from just reading this Gospel. Watch and get a fresh look at this Gospel.
I love this movie so much. It's well done, the pictures are great, the narration is excellent and Jesus is wonderfully represented. I will recommanded this movie without hesitation. I watched it many times and each and every time I loved it even more.
I absolutely love this movie. It is true in expectations of following the Gospel of John. It is about 3 hours, but never boring. This is our traditional week before Easter movie. Bought this one for a family member.
