"The Gospel Of John"

Director Philip Saville's biblical feature "The Gospel of John" (2003), narrated by Christopher Plummer, was adapted for the screen on a word-for-word basis from the American Bible Society's 'Good News Bible', in a three-hour epic that follows 'John's Gospel' without additions to the story, or omission of complex passages:

"...the film was created by a group of professionals from Canada and the UK, along with academic and theological consultants from around the world...

"...with a cast selected primarily from the 'Stratford Shakespeare Festival', 'Soulpepper Theatre' Company, plus Britain's 'Royal Shakespeare Company' and 'Royal National Theatre'. The musical score, composed by Jeff Danna, and created for the film, is based on the music of the Biblical period..."
