Agreed Amen Amen Mr Foss from Jason Farmer in Trinidad and Tobago
Best portrayal of Christ in any film or video I’ve seen. I could almost believe it’s Him.
I agree with Jane Hiatt, Best portrayal of Christ in any film. Life changing.
I tell you
I am not Mormon, but I am a Christian and John Foss is my Favorite Jesus of all time….I watch the LDS videos everyday…know them by heart. These great videos, and Johns great portrayal of our Lord really feed my faith. Thank you, John, for making them.
I’m a Christian and I watched this video on Life of Jesus by John Foss, wow, he is a terrific actor as Jesus Christ. I really like how he speaks as Jesus, memorizing all the words that Jesus had spoken. I can’t get over he is that good.
After watching John Foss’ work in the Bible videos, my co-teacher and I agree that no other actor can compare in the role of Christ. The portrayal and likeness are profound. Thank you John for bringing the beauty, love, and power of the Savior to life on film and for the amazing impact your work has had in our lives and on the lives of our seminary students. From your seminary teacher superfans, Lisa and Angela
I find it hard to call you John. am just going to thank you for playing role of Jesus. I watch it everyday on youtube and my life has been forever changed. The onlypart I don’t watch is when Christ was punished. That I shall not watch. I believe in the blood of Christ. To me it is not a human playing Jesus, I tend to see Jesus himself.
Thank you very much.
Hello Rachel I completely agree with what you write about this actor. I feel the same. I tried watching other actors but none of them is as gentle and convincing as this one
This actor plays so well that I find myself watching only his movies of Jesus. He portrays a very kind nature that I believe Jesus has. He is really good. Thank you very much for playing this role. I have come very close to Jesus ever since. Thank you.
We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but before joining the Church, my husband and I bought every Jesus video for our spiritual moments, closes to attending church. Once we watched these videos just could not go back to watching any other. Until the church came out with these New Testament videos, we study the scriptures and watch to bring to life, yes, as if our Saviour is in our home, his voice, his countenance. He is the best playing the part of our Jesus Christ. I know it is a big task to continue using your talent to act or make spiritual uplifting movies to strengthen people’s faith in Jesus Christ. You are the best John Foss. Thank you❤️
He played the role of Jesus so well. Very touching indeed. I find it hard to call him by his name but then I know he represented Jesus. I wish he could another big role like the 2nd coming of Jesus. That would be great. I TRIED WATCHING OTHER ACTORS BUT NONE TOUCHES MY HEART LIKE JOHN FOSS. HE IS MISSED.
God sent these videos when I needed them most I am going through dark days but seeing these videos comforts me Mr. John Foss represents the role of Jesus very well I feel as if it were really the every time I see him I feel peace his features his face so kind makes me feel a peace. Thank you Mr. Foss, blessings from Hermosillo are Mexico.
O maior acontecimento registrado na história da humanidade, não foi o homem por os pés na lua, mas sim o Filho do Homem, por os pés na terra.
O excelente ator é aquele que desaparece em cena e somente o seu personagem fica.
Mr. John Foss você consegui isto ao representar Jesus Cristo. Parabéns.
Sem palavras para expressar a beleza, leveza e tocante do filme “O Menino Jesus”
For he Shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him
You have portrayed the Savior Jesus Christ as no other. I look forward to meeting Him as He really is and love watching your videos as you “lived” His life on film. Thank you for your talents.
