The Gospel of Luke is the second film by The Lumo Project which brings the original Jesus narrative to the screen using the Gospel text as its script, word for word. Informed by leading world experts' latest theological, historical and archaeological research on every aspect of life in first century Palestine, this is a ground breaking multi million pound film series that revolutionizes the way we experience and understand the story of Jesus. Based entirely on the unedited, unabridged New Testament Gospels, its dramatized action is accompanied by voice over narration by Richard E. Grant (NIV version) and Sir Derek Jacobi KJV version) Filmed with authentic actors and featuring specially constructed sets and the authentic countryside of Morocco, with computer generated Jerusalem and Temple, to create an unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story.

Winner of UK Christian Film Festival Awards 2015: Best Series and Best of British.

Check out a trailer about the filming of these movies:


While it might seem odd, I actually allowed Miss Grace to watch and review this DVD as part of her bible study for the week (home school is nothing but flexible, LOL), as she instantly wanted to watch it, as she is a huge fan of the first Lumo project movie (The Gospel of John). This film was also followed by The Gospel of Mark and The Gospel of Matthew.

What we both like is that the actors look authentic. They look as what we now know Jesus and the people of his time, and place, looked like! Add that the actors are speaking Aramic (!!!) in the scenes, which you can hear behind the narrator, and you get a true sense of time and place. Miss Grace is really into audible books these days, so for her this was an amazing way to see 'hear' the bible come to life. The DVD is long- 205 minutes- so she split her viewing into 3 days! What I saw was that actually 'seeing' the visual with hearing the words, really helped her to understand this Gospel SO much better. While her bible skills are pretty good, this video really helped to enhance it.

if you are looking for a great way to introduce the Gospels to your children, in a way that grabs their attention, THESE are the DVDs you need! We can't recommend them enough!
