Netflix Movie Review: Gospel of John

December 5, 2014

During the Christmas season, I am reminded of the reason we celebrate this very special holiday. It's no ordinary holiday, mind you. We are blessed with the opportunity to honor the birth of Christ! People may fuss about whether or not to do Santa with their kids, or say that it's just a pagan holiday and it didn't begin as a celebration about Jesus. I'm not focused on such things because it gets in the way of God's story. In fact, keeping baby Jesus in the manger even misses the point. Yes, it's important to know how he arrived on Earth, but let's not keep him there. Let's remember WHY he came. Just released on Netflix is The Gospel of John. Taking the biblical text word-for-word, this film provides a excellent visual of the scripture in action. Please join me as I take a closer look at this new movie.
