    S&T:

    And why not sir Frogman? My first comment is why did they use the Good News Bible? Secondly, the guy playing John the Baptist acted like a zen master.

    Jude bought it I think, and said it was a waste of money. I'll look for a link to his thread.

    here is what focus on jerusalem said about the movie at http://www.focusonjerusalem.com/newsroom.html


    The Gospel of John

    (see http://www.thegospelofjohnthefilm.com)

    March 5….(FOJ) The Passion of The Christ movie by Mel Gibson is not the hot movie to see this season. Oh, it is getting a lot of attention, but it is a far cry from what the Gospel Story truly is. Yes, our Lord did indeed suffer a horrible torturous time before he was crucified. But the passion of Christ was to sacrifice himself to pay the price of sin so that lost people could be freed of the slavery of Satan. And that should be the passion of every Christian. I saw Mel Gibson’s movie last week, and it did not greatly impress me outside of witnessing a credible reproduction of Christ’s agony. This week, however, I saw a movie that conveyed the whole story of The Christ. Its theme centers about the literal Gospel account of John. It is the movie that the whole world should be seeing and talking about. As usual though, the Devil has everybody looking at the wrong thing. Jesus suffering was horrible, but it is His resurrection and ascension back into Heaven that should be highlighted this Easter season. Before enduring The Passion, Jesus took great care to convey to his disciples that he would leave them to prepare a place for them. Jesus told his disciples that they could not yet follow him, but tenderly informed them that although he would be absent for awhile, he would send The Comforter to be with them, and to guide, teach, and reside with them.
    Then after arising from the dead and spending 40 days more with them, the time came for him to leave and go back to his father. But He left them with a promise, and that promise is even more in focus today than ever before. (John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.) In the meantime, Jesus has left us with this command, “Feed My Sheep.” This is the mission of Focus on Jerusalem. In these Perilous Last Days, FOJ is continually striving to feed the sheep, and to warn everyone that the signs of the times are whizzing by one after another. Jesus, that very same Jesus that ascended up away from John and the other disciples on the Mount of Olives 2000 years ago is coming soon! But my heart is not troubled, for I can see the glory of the coming of the Lord.

    I agree Spirit and Truth,
    I watched the trailer. And had the same wonder about the translation used.

    From the beginning the word was with God?

    I meant though the cross dressing comment was a joke.

    As I have said before, I own a copy of 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' and though I think Charlton Hesston made a good John the Baptist, there were parts of that film I strongly disagree with.

    So much is said of artistic license, I guess so.

    But a movie is a movie, until it is claimed as the greatest evangelical tool in the last 100 years, it remains a movie. Once bearing the burden of that claim, it becomes an image of what people believe is the word of God.

    Therefore is my problem with the other film.
