Lionsgate’s The Gospel of Luke was released on October 17, 2017, and has been intriguing audiences in the past weeks. The narration of the Luke’s perspective on the events surrounding Jesus’ life, has been praised by religious scholars. The movie paints a beautiful picture of the Gospel of Luke. Though not rated, the 205 minute film, is suitable for the whole family.
I highly recommend this beautiful film that will captivate your family for years to come. I think it’s a great movie to watch during the seasons of Advent and Lent when our focus should be turned even more to Jesus and His life.
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, 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.
