Lumo Project Shares Gospel of John on Netflix

Multi-language biblical film provides a new way to engage with the life of Jesus

In this age of ever-changing media and shifting viewing habits, Netflix has been a pioneer in offering creative and innovative content. When folks hear the name Netflix, shows like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black come to mind. But what if the brand also became synonymous with the Scriptures?

On December 1, The Gospel of John joined the Netflix library. It is the first feature film from The Lumo Project, a multi-language “biblical film resource” that offers a unique way to discover and engage with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Production of films on the other three Gospels is currently underway.

Netflix, with over 53 million paid subscribers globally, is the world’s leading Internet television network. The Gospel of John film presents the Gospel text in full. Two editions are now available in English: the New International Version, narrated by David Harewood, and the King James Version, narrated by Brian Cox. These, along with a version using the Spanish-language Reina Valera 1960 translation, are streaming now. Narrations in French, German, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, Brazilian and Portuguese will be released over the coming months.

The Lumo Project works to make the Gospels accessible to all people, regardless of language, location, background and upbringing. The Gospel of John is doing just that.
