Lumo Project: The Gospel of John #JohnOnNetflix

What I thought:

As of this past Monday you can now watch the Lumo Projects the Gospel of John on Netflix, and it is worth adding to your list. The Gospel of John is a full length film using the actual text from John without edits or changes. You can view the film in the King James Version, New International Version and it is also available in Spanish. The Lumo Project will eventually have all four Gospels available.

The Gospel of John is not your typical movie, it wasn’t created to sell out theaters, or adapted to please audiences, the script come directly from the Bible and the film is used to add to and give context to what is already written. The Gospel of John is a new way to experience the Bible by not only hearing the Word spoken but by seeing what it would have looked like during the time. This film will enhance what you have read by showing you what the world looked like when Jesus lived. This is specifically great for people that are visual learners because they can see what is happening along with the text. I really enjoyed this film and think that it will be an amazing resource for people and give them an entirely different experience when interacting with the Bible. I am excited to see the rest of the Gospels as they come to life through these films.

About the Film and Lumo Project:


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.

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 presents four films – one for each Gospel account – that will revolutionise the way we all experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which he lived.


The Gospel of John takes the story of Jesus from John’s gospel with its own unique characteristics. For John, Jesus is the Word of God made human. John is clear that that when encounter Jesus, we encounter God.  The gospel writer points to the miracles (the ‘Signs’) and teachings as evidence of Jesus’ special relationship as the divine Son of God.

This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as its script, word for word, unedited. Five years in the making, this epic production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story. Narrated by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’) it is based on the latest theological, historical and archaeological research. With specially constructed sets and the extraordinarily authentic villages and countryside of rural Morocco, it immerses the viewer in the world of first century Palestine. 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
