Movies about Jesus
The following are dramatic portrayals of the life and work of Jesus Christ as presented by the gospels. All of these are true to Scripture, and provide fresh ways for us to imagine what it was like to live during the time of Jesus.
The Gospel of John
This three-hour drama attempts to accurately 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 by disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and crucifixion; and the appearance of the risen Christ.
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. It presents the unique claims of Jesus who said He was not just an ordinary person, but God who came down from heaven and became a man. The gospel makes us face His claims directly, and to decide for ourselves whether Jesus is who He says He is, or if He is a charlatan and a deceiver. To believe in Jesus, says John, is to obtain eternal life and to have the right to be called children of God.
