Follows the book of ACTS. Shows the complete message of Christ and the transformation of Saul to Paul and how the high priest of Judea does not believe in what has taken place after the Crucifixion of Christ.

I found this adaptation of The Gospel of John (KJV) was absolutely stunning and accurate to the Word of God. Granted, I was at first taken aback by the actors acting out scenes while a narrator read the Bible word for word from the book of John in the background, but after watching, and reading other reviews on this, I completely understood Lumo's reasoning behind it, if it is truly their reasoning.
The reason I have read is because it makes it easier to put this movies out in multiple languages. Like Thai, German, Swedish, Russian, Spanish (which they already have), and a handful of other languages, and still remain accurate without filming the movie multiple times. The 1979 Jesus movie did this, in a way, when it put the movie out in multiple languages not only in subtitles, but dubbed.
I love that the actors look like the roles they play. This Jesus is one of the most accurate portrayals as he finally looks Jewish rather than European or like someone from GQ magazine. While we do not know what He looked like, we do know He was born a Jew, so to have Him look like a Jew in this movie made it all that more wonderful to watch.
Do not pass this movie up. It is two and a half hours long, but it is the best two and half hours you'll ever spend watching something as accurate and detailed to God's Word. It is probably the most accurate depiction of any Bible movie to date, that didn't take Hollywood license or compromise the truth of the Gospel.
