The Gospel According to John

Bruce Marchiano Ministries presents, The Gospel According to John, a film that brings John's Gospel "to life" in cinematic splendor, fully dramatized, verse by verse.

"For the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation..." (Romans 1:16)

Funded entirely by the donations of thousands of God's children joining together across culture and denomination, John is a film "created by the body of Christ to bring Jesus to a world that desperately needs Him."

"Everyone whose heart was stirred and whose spirit moved him came and brought an offering for the work of the Lord..." (Exodus 35:21)  


About the Film

The year is 65 A.D. Decades have passed since Jesus walked the land of Israel. He'd fulfilled every word of The Law and Prophets, and performed wonders that could only be of God.

Yet the distance of time and generation has dampened the fire that once burned in the hearts of God's children. Some even question if Jesus truly was Messiah.

And so the Apostle John, now aged, returns to the land of Galilee, to share his eye-witness account. Unfurling the scroll of Moses, he points to its opening words, and begins,

"In the beginning was the Word..."

​And through vivid flashbacks that bring Jesus "to life" in the fullness of His passion and glory, the Gospel unfolds before us in all its power and life-changing wonder, The Gospel According to John.

“We’re still not even close in terms of a full budget for what a film like this needs to be done properly.  But we do have the five loaves and fishes so we’re stepping out…and we’re beginning to go.  If you would be so moved to join us in this effort…$10, $20, and we put it all together; thousands of us and come up with a budget for a film that is going to bring Jesus, the heart of Jesus to many, many people who need to know him.” -Bruce Marchiano
