In principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum. -John 1:1
FOUR GOSPELS. FOUR FILMS. ONE JESUS STORY. FOR EVERYONE.
Have you heard about this yet?
It's called the Lumo Project it is playing now on Netflix!
What is it?
"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 encompasses four feature-length films – one for each Gospel account – that revolutionize the way we 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."
I had an opportunity to preview this movie and for the first 5 minutes I thought "This is so weird, they are just reading the Bible to me..." after 10 minutes I thought "This is so amazing! They are reading the bible to me!" I was so impressed! You need to check this out! It is a perfect companion to your scripture reading this holiday season! You can find it on Netflix.
It looks like this:
It's unfortunate that it doesn't have very good reviews so far. It does move a little slow, but then, the Bible isn't always full of action and drama! I think you should give it a chance...it is definitely different but it is very good and the text comes straight from the Bible.
