The Gospel of John movie is based on the writings from the New Testament. If tells about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ from the eyes of John the disciple. The film goes hand in hand with the scriptural writing of the Gospel of John. A huge difference between all the gospels and Johns was that he didn't focus on the birth of Christ at the beginning but with the creation of the world. Then moving onto the miracles and teachings of Jesus and his disciples. The film skipped the nativity scene, which refers to the birth of Jesus from the Virgin Mary. John the Baptist his testimony to the Messiah coming, was another key part to the film. It was him that baptized Jesus, which was a key aspect to the Christianity because even Christ was baptized which shows there isn't any man who doesn't need baptism for spiritual salvation. The Jews were outraged by the teaching Jesus and claimed that he was teaching false beliefs. This made the Jewish rulers to force the Roman rulers to have Jesus brought before them. The Romans knew that if they failed to listen to the people it would put extreme pressure on them. Therefore they gave the people what they wanted, Jesus crucified. There are many connections between this film and world religions. This is a Christianity film, Christianity is a growing religion and is the largest religion in the world today. The gospel of John is a book of scripture that is in the Bible, all Christians except the Bible therefore the gospel of John is taught regularly. I really felt like the film and the gospel of John are very in tune with each other. It is a great film for those to learn the key aspects about Christ, if you're a known believer.
