Word-for-word, The Gospel of John faithfully re-creates the stories of John's gospel with narration from veteran actors Brian Cox (Troy, the Bourne films) and David Harewood (Blood Diamond, Homeland).
Shot on location in Morocco, this first film in the Lumo Project series uses on location filming in Morocco and a multi-million pound budget to create the most authentic bible portrayal so far.
All the actors speak in the original aramaic language, as well as wearing costumes accurate to the period. The movie uses the 'latest theological, historical and archaeological research' to authentically render the fourth gospel faithfully and cinematically.
The Lumo Project's goal is to film all four of the gospels in the most realistic and authentic way possible. The gospels for a visual age is the Lumo Project's mission and goal. With cutting-edge computer generated Jerusalem and Temple, the latest in theological research and historical findings, and a beautiful cinematic styling, this series aims to redefine how we see the Gospels in the visual age.
Both accurate and cinematic, The Gospel of John is the first of four films to recreate the unabridged life of Jesus, word-for-word.
