The Nativity Story DVD
This DVD, released in 2007, beautifully recreates the Annunciation and the arduous
journey of Mary and Joseph to give birth to Baby Jesus. Filmed in the village of Matera, Italy (a locale that
has remained virtually untouched by modern progress and also served as the backdrop for Mel Gibson's "The
Passion of the Christ") and Quarzazate, Morocco, this film strives for authenticity in telling the
Bible's most treasured tale. I highly recommend adding this DVD to your Christmas
The Gospel of John DVD
Veteran British filmmaker Philip Saville directs the religious
epic The Gospel
of John, a production of the Canadian company Visual
Bible International. This three-hour drama attempts to accurately follow the Gospel According to John, written
sometime during the first century. The gospel contains four segments: an introduction to the nature of Jesus
Christ; testimony by disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and crucifixion; and the appearance of
the risen Christ. Henry Ian Cusick plays Jesus and Christopher
Plummer provides voice-over narration. This DVD is a
perfect follow-up to The Nativity Story DVD recommended above.
