The Gospel of Luke

Following The Gospel of John and The Gospel of Mark comes the third installment in the renowned Gospel film series, The Gospel of Luke, arriving on DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand October 17 from Lionsgate. The third book of The New Testament comes to life for the first time with a truly unique, word-for-word adaptation that uses the gospel narrative as its script. Shot on location in Morocco with consultation from expert theologians and biblical scholars, and produced by the Lumo Project, The Gospel series was given the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for 12+. The Gospel of Luke DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.

The Gospel of Luke, more than any other, fits the category of ancient biography. Luke, as “narrator” of events, sees Jesus as the “Savior” of all people, always on the side of the needy and the deprived. Narrated in the NIV by British actor Richard E. Grant and in the KJV by Sir Derek Jacobi, this epic production — featuring specially constructed sets and the authentic countryside of Morocco — has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story.

A Word for Word Account

The Gospel of Luke is a word for word account, straight from the Bible, just like The Gospel of MarkI love that these movies (from LionsGate) come straight from the Bible. I could easily follow along with my Bible, and I did just that. With both movies, I sat and watched with my King James Version Bible in my lap through the whole movie.

This movie, is Luke’s account of the life of Jesus; his birth, life, death, and resurrection. Last year I reviewed The Gospel of Mark, in time for Jesus’ resurrection – Easter. Now, this amazing Gospel from Luke is just in time for Jesus’ birthday – Christmas. These movies have both make me cry. The death of Jesus is a very hard part of the Gospel to study through, and these movies just bring it all straight to heart.

The clothing, the people, it is all very realistic. Narrated in both NIV (by Richard E. Grant) and KJV (Sir Derek Jacobi); I grew up reading the King James Version, and (in my opinion) it is the closest to the original documents.

With this amazing movie I get a clearer picture of how life was in the time of Christ, and Luke. The movie is just as I expected it to be, beautiful, and heart-touching. It brings the life of Christ closer, and makes it easier to picture. These movies are quickly becoming some of my very favorites.
