I really enjoyed the Gospel of John –
I was able to pre-view a link to the movie this week.
The voice of the narrator is comforting. Beautiful dictation. The musical score fits perfectly. Nicely tucked behind the words, swaying, moving the words along. The images are from rural Morocco – it brings you in. Sound effects – the sea arose – a great wind that blew – and you can hear it. I was listening on my computer as I did some other work at times, and relied on the narration – audio book style.
I really enjoyed this – and think that it would be an amazing movie to put on in the afternoon or morning in your home with the kiddos. I spent some time just watching, but I did have to work too. I’d have to go click over to SEE what was going on. This is the difference with Audio vs DVD narration of The Word. You get to really see it too.
So here’s my Netflix Movie to share – Gospel of John on Netflix!
From the Publisher:
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.
