The Gospel of John is one of my favorite movies on the life and words of Jesus. Most movies draw predominantly from Matthew, Mark and Luke, while this one comes across differently because of the unique content of John’s Gospel. In many ways I find it the most endearing and personal portrayal of Jesus, and above all it's faithful to the text of Scripture. It combines narration with dialogue and action.
This is certainly something you could watch with unbelieving friends, or give as a gift. You could watch it in weekly segments and just talk about it. It comes in both the full three-hour edition and an abridged for television two hour edition. Both are great.
I recommend that you watch the entire movie, but here’s a 3-minute excerpt.
