The Gospel of John, the first of four feature length films of the four Gospels undertaken by the Lumo Project, will be debuted on BBC Two in the United Kingdom this Easter, says a press release received by Gateway News this week.
The four films are word-for-word renditions of the Gospels that will revolutionise the way viewers will experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which He lived, says the release. The latest historical research has been used to recreate Palestine of the First Century as authentically as possible, thereby helping to break the stereotypical film tradition of a westernised Jesus and presenting His life as it really was 2 000 years ago.
The Lumo Project is a unique educational resource that can be seen and heard by a truly global audience as it can be dubbed into any Bible version and any language.
Dr Edward Adams, a Professor of New Testament Studies at King’s College, London had this to say on the project: “No other Jesus production so successfully captures the story of Jesus in its fourfold form”.
The Lumo Project Gospel of John movie is also available on Netflix. Lumo Project lobbyist Victoria Omotoso told Gateway News today that she is lobbying for the project to come to South Africa but for now the focus is on the BBC screening over Easter.
