 COMMENTARY ON JOHN'S GOSPEL
The Gospel of John is one of the four Gospels which the early church authorised as being based on the evidence of eyewitnesses to the life of Jesus.
John is concerned with Jesus' activity in Jerusalem and the surrounding area but he says sufficient to show that he was aware of an extensive Galilean ministry, although he virtually ignores it.
There is nothing in the Gospel to repudiate this idea, and the fact that John is not mentioned in the Gospel, and that John the Baptiser is simply called John would seem strong support for it.

John was putting on the finishing touches of his gospel for Paul’s churches (since the churches of Asia Minor had none and since Paul did not know Christ according to the flesh) when Peter was arrested.

The fourth gospel is not as anti-Jewish as some people thin anyway: salvation is still said to be "from the Jews" (4.22), and often the referent of "the Jews" is "the Jews in Judea" or "the Jewish leaders" or the like.

 "The Gospel of John" / review and/or viewer comments - Christian Spotlight on the Movies
John's Gospel is probably heavier on dialogue and leaner on action when compared to the Synoptic Gospels, but this movie never suffers from that, largely due, I think, to Cusick's spirited performance and the filmmakers' inventive staging and filming.
Some say "John" (the author's name is known only by tradition; the Gospel has no name attached to it) wrote his Gospel as an old man, after a lifetime of theological reflection on "The Word" that had become flesh.
For those who have a perception that John's Gospel gives us a Jesus who is wholly or largely focused on the realm from which He came, this movie may come as a shock, for it shows that John's Jesus is a very earthly/earthy/fleshly/real Jesus.
