The Gospel of John

Film Description:

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.

The Gospel of John DVD includes three different biblical text translations – the New International Version, the King James Version, and the 1960 Spanish Reina-Valera translation – and five behind the scenes featurettes looking at the making of the film.

FOUR GOSPELS. FOUR FILMS. ONE JESUS STORY. FOR EVERYONE! – A revolutionary 4 part film series chronicling the Canonical Gospels.

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 revolutionize the way we all experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which he lived.

For the first time on screen, the Lumo Project takes the actual four individual Gospel texts as its script, word for word, unedited. We use the very latest historical research to recreate Palestine of the First Century as authentically as possible. We break with the stereotypical tradition of a westernised Jesus and his life story and present it as it really was 2000 years ago. The Lumo Project is a versatile educational resource that can be seen and heard by a truly global audience as it can be dubbed into any version and any language.

The Lumo Project is a pioneering educational resource designed to promote biblical literacy for anyone interested in the Gospel stories , irrespective of faith. It contains all the original stories that changed the world from Jesus’ miraculous birth to his agonising death on the cross and his triumphal resurrection; all his miracles, his teachings, his parables and the extraordinary story of his life. The Lumo Project provides a unique Gospel experience for the 21st Century and is accessible to everyone.

    A very helpful production. It’s very well filmed and the Gospel text as a the ‘script’ works extremely well. The locations are very effective and any digital effects are extremely well used. There are always a few things that one can pick on (the magi at Bethlehem instead of Nazareth; the nails through Jesus’ palms instead of his wrists; speaking to individuals instead of to groups e.g. John 6) but these do not detract from the support the film gives to the text. But – thank you so much for a cast that actually looks Middle-Eastern!
    I believe that this is the best production of its type to have been made and pray that it will be a great blessing to many people.
    I’ve bought my (downloaded) copy!
    When will it be available in DVD / BluRay?
