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!
