...meticulously re-creates the era of Jesus...

The Gospel of John, the best-loved of the four Gospels, vividly comes to life in a faithful and powerful dramatization of the Biblical text.  

The Gospel of John meticulously re-creates the era of Jesus during a tumultuous period that changed the course of history.  

...narrated by Christopher Plummer...

Starring Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus, and narrated by Christopher Plummer, and with a cast of over 2500, The Gospel of John has been adapted for the screen, word for word, based on the American Bible Society's  Good News Bible, by Emmy-nominated John Goldsmith and is directed by acclaimed British Director, Philip Saville. __________________________
