The Lumo Project’s adaptation of The Gospel of Mark may have played in theatres last month, but it is their adaptation of The Gospel of Luke that came out on DVD.

The Gospel of Luke is not yet available in any format outside the UK, as far as I know, but you can watch the trailer for it, which went online six days ago, below:

Note: The Gospel of John, which first premiered on Netflix back in December 2014, had narration by Brian Cox (KJV) and David Harewood (NIV), but The Gospel of Luke is narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi (KJV) and Richard E. Grant (NIV).

It is also worth noting that The Gospel of Luke apparently has a prologue that focuses on the writing of the gospel itself, whereas The Gospel of John had no such device. And one of the interesting things here is that the film shows Luke dictating his gospel to a scribe while reading other scrolls (his sources? other gospels, perhaps?).

This is not the first time someone has made a word-for-word adaptation of Luke’s gospel. It was previously adapted by the Genesis Project in the 1970s:

Luke’s gospel was also the primary basis for the Campus Crusade Jesus film as well as The Savior, a Palestinian film produced with an all-Arab cast in 2013.

The Gospel of John has been available on DVD in North America since October, but it was apparently not available in the UK until it was released alongside The Gospel of Luke last month. The Lumo Project posted a trailer for that DVD’s release, too:

The Lumo Project’s website says The Gospel of Luke will come to North America later this year, and it says The Gospel of Mark and The Gospel of Matthew will come out and complete the series on both sides of the pond before the year is up, too.

As ever, stay tuned.
