When you read the Bible, you must use your imagination to see Jesus walking the desert sands, you must imagine Him healing the sick, and bringing sight to the blind, that is until now!
This movie is a combination of beautiful picturesque imagines that bring the words you hear when you read the Bible to life.
The narration and acting brings those Biblical stories to life in a way I have never seen before.
As the narrator speaks, the scriptures come to life in front of your eyes.
You are taken back in time. You walk the street, you are sitting there as Jesus teaches, you watch Jesus show love for the people, and you watch him work to free the people from the yoke of laws, and leaders who don’t understand the commandments of God, let alone his teachings.
This captivating project make you an observer, and you feel like you are there with John and Jesus, and it is amazing.
The cinematolgy is outstanding, and so is the acting. I enjoyed it so much, I watched it twice.
This phenomenal experience allows you to hear the movie in one of three version Spanish, NIV, or King James while watching the pages unfold onscreen.
I have seen a number of BiBle movies, none of them have been as captivating and memorable, as this one.
Excellent movie, I hope they do the other books of the Gospel, as well

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
The Gospel of John takes the story of Jesus from John’s gospel with its own unique characteristics. For John, Jesus is the Word of God made human. John is clear that that when encounter Jesus, we encounter God. The gospel writer points to the miracles (the ‘Signs’) and teachings as evidence of Jesus’ special relationship as the divine Son of God.
This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as its script, word for word, unedited. Five years in the making, this epic production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story. Narrated by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’) it is based on the latest theological, historical and archaeological research. With specially constructed sets and the extraordinarily authentic villages and countryside of rural Morocco, it immerses the viewer in the world of first century Palestine.
