You've seen the stories of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses -- and now the story of John the Apostle comes alive on the screen as never before as Richard Harris takes the role of the biblical figure in this effort from filmmaker Raffaele Mertes. In 90 A.D., the Roman emperor launches a fierce campaign against the Christians, and John is being held captive for his efforts to spread the gospel. When a young Christian named Irene arrives with hopes of visiting the last surviving witness of the Lord's passion, John entrusts her with a written record of his divine visions that will eventually form the Book of Revelations.
