John on DVD [JOHN]
Bring the Gospel of John to life with this fantastic resource. With a cast of 2500, this powerful film meticulously recreates the era of Jesus during a tumultuous period that changed the course of history.
Suggestions for use: Use at your kickoff event to introduce the Gospel of John, introduce the new chapter at the beginning of each practice, or serve up some popcorn and watch at an overnighter.
Note: This movie is not NIV; it is word-for-word from the Good News translation. There is not currently an NIV version of John in movie format, though the actor that starred in the Matthew and Acts movies is now trying to raise funds to produce a John version based on the NIV. Unfortunately, the movie is not slated for production until 2012.
Though not NIV, we believe that this movie paints an accurate picture of the Gospel of John and is a great way to help your kids take in the whole Gospel of John in one short sitting.
This DVD is great. Good acting, true to the text, fun, even!
This movie is the entire book of Acts word for word. It shows how Christianity was spread after Jesus returned to heaven. I liked the way the story of Saul/Paul was portrayed. Unlike others I think all the actors did a fantastic job including Peter. Also I think there were enough background actors. Awesome movie.
I never thought that seeing a movie which followed faithfully a book would make such a difference. But it does. Its a brand new experience to read the Acts in one go. Its great!
