The Gospel Road: A Story of Jesus

1973 G

Inspired by his deep Christian faith, "Man in Black" Johnny Cash wrote and produced this passionate retelling of the story of Jesus Christ, featuring original songs by Cash; his wife, June Carter Cash; John Denver; and singer-actor Kris Kristofferson. Filmed primarily in Israel, this powerful reenactment was such a heartfelt labor of love for Cash that he also narrates and appears in the 1973 production.
