The Gospel of John is a faithful film rendition of that gospel.
I started watching this over the Christmas "break". Haven't finished it, yet.
However, while it didn't show something "untrue", I thought it to be a bit too lighthearted.
"Jesus" is always walking at a rather brisk pace, always smiling and seemed less then serious when Christ would have been very serious at pivotal moments.
Again, I haven't finished it yet, however, to me it seemed they were hitting the "points", but, not spreading the message. Very seldom did you hear the words and the lessons which Christ spoke. He was here, he was there....he was feeding, healing, etc. But, the "message" was missing.
He was being persecuted, however, if you didn't already know what was going on, you would not have "learned" anything about Christianity, just about some episodes in the life of a man named Jesus.
