The Gospel of Luke
Available on Prime Video, Amazon Freevee
Luke's Gospel, more than any other, fits the category of ancient biography. Luke acts as a ‘narrator' of events rather than the conventional author, painting a picture of Jesus as a very human character, full of compassion for all the suffering in the world. Luke sees Jesus as the ‘Saviour' of all people irrespective of their beliefs, always on the side of the needy and the deprived against the rich and the powerful. He constantly challenges those in power for their self righteousness. 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 in the NIV by leading British actor Richard E. Grant (‘Downton Abbey', ‘Gosford Park') and the KJV by Sir Derek Jacobi (‘Gladiator', ‘The Kings Speech', ‘I, Claudius') 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.
