Clearly a Movie — not a book!
This is one of those films in which the ingredients mix well. The story to begin with is the greatest story ever told and then to mix it with a solid performance by Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus, along with Christopher Plummer as the narrator and factor in the beautiful cinematography and you’re in for a real treat. This, along with Matthew and Acts is the best Biblical story I have seen about Jesus in terms of the film lining up with scripture. It is a verse by verse filmed story of the Gospel of John based on the Good News translation.
