British filmmaker Philip Saville directs the religious epic The Gospel of John | a production of the Canadian company Visual Bible International. This three hour drama is trying exactly to follow the gospel according to John | written sometime during the first century. The gospel contains four segments: an introduction to the nature of Jesus Christ; testimony of disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and Crucifixion; and the appearance of the risen Christ. Henry Ian Cusick plays Jesus and Christopher Plummer delivers voice-over narration. The Gospel of John was featured in a special presentation at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival.
The Gospel of John was written two generations after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
It is set in a time when the Roman Empire controlled Jerusalem.
Although crucifixion was the preferred Roman method of punishment, it was not a sanctioned one by Jewish law.
Jesus and all his early followers were Jewish.
The gospel reflects a period of unprecedented polemic and antagonism between the new church and the religious establishment of the Jewish people.
