The story of Jesus' life as told by the apostle John, narrated by Christopher Plummer. Veteran British filmmaker Philip Saville directs the religious epic The Gospel of John. This drama attempts to accurately follow the Gospel According to John written sometime during the first century. The Gospel of John was shown in a special presentation at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival.
The gospel contains four segments: an introduction to the nature of Jesus Christ; testimony by disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and crucifixion; and the appearance of the risen Christ.
The Gospel of John was written two generations after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is set in a time when the Roman Empire controlled Jerusalem. Although crucifixion was the preferred Roman method of punishment, it was not one sanctioned by Jewish law. Jesus and all his early followers were Jewish. The Gospel reflects a period of unprecedented polemic and antagonism between the emerging church and the religious establishment of the Jewish people.
And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. -John 20:30-31 NKJV
" I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." - John 10:10 NKJV
"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." - John 17:3 NKJV
