When I first got saved one of my very first bible studies was the Gospel of John. After being a Christian for a couple of years I could paraphrase the bible but for the life of me couldn’t tell you book, chapter or verse. Needless to say you could imagine my excitement when I memorized my very first bible verse, John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Believe it or not that’s still the only verse I can quote.
This leads me to tell you about a movie I was asked to review, Lumo Projects “The Gospel of John”. 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.
What makes The Gospel of John different from any other movie about Jesus? First it doesn’t feature or star any known actors. Secondly there’s no Hollywood liberties taken with the story, I mean they don’t deviate or add anything for affect. Lastly, it’s word for word the Gospel of John, you could literally pull out your bible and follow along.
The Gospel of John was released on Netflix on Monday, December 1 and you can pick from 3 different versions: NIV Version, King James Version & In Spanish. The other 3 Gospels, Luke, Mark and Matthew will be available soon.
