LUMO Gospel Films

This is the story of Jesus. This is the story of hope for mankind. 
This is the greatest story ever told.

The Lumo Project is a multi-language biblical film resource engaging us with the life of Jesus through the four New Testament Gospels. It presents four films – one for each Gospel account – where we could experience the story of Jesus and the world of First Century Palestine in which he lived. This full-length feature film about the life of Jesus takes the actual four individual 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 by leading British actor David Harewood (‘Homeland’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Merchant of Venice’) 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, and also breaking the stereotypical tradition of a westernised Jesus and his life story and presents it as it really was 2000 years ago.

EMDC Podcast Launch

In the gospels, Jesus is recorded thirteen times telling his would-be disciples to follow him. In our present social media age, follow is usually combined with like. Yeah, it can be cringeworthy but building a community means keeping in touch with one another and having effective ways to get messages and stories out to those who opt in to being a part of the community like we have here through EMDC.

In November of 2020, EMDC Founder Steve Baughman and I began hosting a podcast designed to introduce our growing number of community members to the “people, places and possibilities” behind the global EMDC network. Season 1, launching on Wed Jan 13 2021, is designed to cover some past history of our conference (for newcomers) bringing our community up to date on our current online offerings as well as include interviews with specialists in app development, websites, ethnoarts, filmmaking, audio/radio, scripture gadgets, orality & storytelling, scripture engagement and culturally intelligent media.

Will WhatsApp’s change in privacy policy affect me?

Some people are worried about WhatsApp’s change in terms. They wonder if they should switch to some other platform, some other app. Those are reasonable questions. However, let’s take a step back and look at the bigger picture from a wider perspective before jumping to conclusions. Let’s act out of confidence rather than out of fear. After all, the Lord has given us many gifts, but fear is not one of them. ‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.’ (2 Tim. 1:7, NLT)
