Presented below are forty Jewish people who relate their life story, and where a three-hour, world-class film, THE GOSPEL OF JOHN, is viewable.
THE GOSPEL OF JOHN was produced in 2003, funded as a commercial venture and later sold by a Jewish group. This outstanding film features celebrated actor, Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus, and draws its audience into antiquity by way of meticulous re-creation, including an original music score complete with instrumental sounds of the time, and an original script written around 90 A.D. by John, a Jew, and a disciple of Jesus.
For many readers, both ancient and modern, the Gospel of John (also known as "the book of John") -- from which the film takes its script, is the "spiritual Gospel." It is distinct from other accounts because of its initial emphasis on Jesus as the one who descends from God at the beginning of the account, and who returns to God at the end. In the Gospel of John, Jews recognise Jesus as the Messiah. Perhaps what impresses most about the Gospel of John, is its breathtaking sweep, bridging from "before the world was created" to future generations who will believe that "Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God."
The film adaption of the Gospel of John, depicting the life-changing impact of encounters and relationships with Jesus, and the life stories shared by forty followers of Jesus from our time -- from a wide variety of backgrounds and representing a range of generations, echo the eternal truth that Jesus is the Messiah awaited by creation, and in particular, the Jewish people.
Provided are some production notes for your information.
Our hope is that this site holding the stories shared and John’s account retold, will introduce you to the life-changing Messiah, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, first embraced by Jews. We welcome any comments or questions that you may have.
