Philip Saville Passed Away

I am sorry to report that the director of The Gospel of John, Philip Saville, passed way December 22, 2016.  Here is the link to the obituary from The Guardian:

Here's a quote from the article:

"He could be a hard taskmaster, but won the respect of his crews because he always had the best interests of the production at heart and the results were of the highest quality. His visual experimentation worked in harmony with a keen intellectualism, and he pushed the envelope both technically and in terms of subject matter."

RIP Philip.

Where to Find The Gospel of John Film

I have had a few people ask about where to purchase The Gospel of John film. Most Christian bookstores either carry it or they can get it for you. You can also find it at or check E-bay. If you can, get the 2 DVD set, as that is the one that has all the extras on it. Some stores only sell the one DVD. It is cheaper, but you'll miss the extras!

Special Features on Disc 2

The Gospel of John film is a two-disc set. The first disc is the three hour theatrical version of the film (which is the one I have seen), and the second disc has the two hour version of the film PLUS all of the Special Features. The Special Features section is excellent! There are two film clips under About the Cast (one of Henry Ian Cusick and the other of Christopher Plummer). To learn more about these two actors, you definitely want to see this. Also, don’t forget to watch the Historical Background film clips, also excellent.

The Production Design section has a film clip on each of the following:

Director - Philip Saville
Screenwriter - John Goldsmith
Director of Photography - Miroslaw Baszak
Production Design - Don Taylor
Costume Design - Debra Hanson
Musical Score - Jeff Danna
Hair & Make-up Design - Trefor Proud

This section is all about the making of The Gospel of John film, and after you have seen the film, I highly recommend watching this section. Each time I watch it, I learn something new. I’d like to thank this entire team of professionals for their excellent work. Thanks to them, we have the greatest film about Jesus on DVD!
