“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

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.

I recently had the opportunity to view a special promo of 'The Gospel of John' from the Lumo Project. Like any Biblical movie, you pray that it'll reach the masses of people and lots will get saved. What I do like about the film, is that it's taken directly from the Gospel of John, word for word. I like that the people are middle eastern and not from western civilization playing the parts.

What I don't like is that it's narrated *throughout* the entire film. I'd rather hear the actors engage and hear them actually speak what is spoken of in the Gospel of John. For me, this film is great for reaching out to the unsaved. I just would've appreciated it more if it was presented in a different way of engagement.

 Thank you to FlyBy Promotions for this opportunity on viewing the special promo of 'The Gospel of John'!
