Lumo Project will be available on Netflix! I was given the opportunity to preview this amazing film project and I can say it is definitely worth checking out! The other three Gospels (Matthew, Mark, & Luke) are underway.
In the film, the whole book of John is narrated word by word from the Bible with stunning visuals. There is just something about hearing the Word of God read out loud that is powerful. Combine the scripture with actors portraying the events as they are read and you have something special. It really was unlike anything that I have watched before.
It's really fascinating to watch the Bible come to life. Everything looks so beautiful and well done. I love when they pan over the cities. It's like getting a front row seat to the life of Jesus. You can view The Gospel of John narrated in the NIV (New International Version), KJV (King James Version), or Spanish.
About the film:
FOUR GOSPELS. FOUR FILMS. ONE JESUS STORY. FOR EVERYONE.
A ground breaking, multi-language biblical film resource transforming the way we discover, study and engage with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels.The Lumo Project is a ground breaking, multi-language biblical film resource transforming the way we discover, study and engage with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels: redefining the standard of visual Biblical media. The Lumo Project presents four films – one for each Gospel account – that will revolutionise the way we all experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which he lived.
THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
The Gospel of John takes the story of Jesus from John’s gospel with its own unique characteristics. For John, Jesus is the Word of God made human. John is clear that that when encounter Jesus, we encounter God. The gospel writer points to the miracles (the ‘Signs’) and teachings as evidence of Jesus’ special relationship as the divine Son of God.This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as its script, word for word, unedited. Five years in the making, this epic production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story. Narrated by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’) it is based on the latest theological, historical and archaeological research. With specially constructed sets and the extraordinarily authentic villages and countryside of rural Morocco, it immerses the viewer in the world of first century Palestine.
