Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus. Powell never blinks and
somehow that reminds me of John's Jesus. The Passion Narrative
features several distinctly Johannine elements too. I can see what
you mean about Last Temptation, but the portrayal of Jesus is
surely the antithesis of John's Jesus, isn't it?
