Lumo Project - Review - FOUR GOSPELS. FOUR FILMS. ONE JESUS STORY. FOR EVERYONE.

FOUR GOSPELS. FOUR FILMS. ONE JESUS STORY. FOR EVERYONE.

I recently had the opportunity to watch a really unique project. The Lumo Project taken straight from The Gospel of John.


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.
I was able to choice between NIV, King James Version, or a Spanish version. I chose King James Version.  
This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as its script, word for word, unedited. It took five years to make the movie. The production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the story of Jesus. The movie is narrated by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’).

The scenery and sets of the movie were awesome. The sets were specially constructed and there are lots of authentic villages and countryside of rural Morocco, it definitely transports you to first century Palestine. 



My kids were not overly keen on the 'narration' format. They said they would have preferred to watch it as a regular movie. However the narration makes sure the movie sticks very close to the bible format.

Check out the project on social media by the following links or by searching for #JohnOnNetflix
