New Film The Covenant Presents a Fresh Visual Adaptation of the Old Testament
POMPANO BEACH, FL — From the creators of Lumo Project films comes a narrative of
Bible stories from the Old Testament. In this visual masterpiece, The Covenant
showcases the Torah through the eyes of Ezra.
Produced with the same commitment to Scripture-based, word-for-word narration as
other Lumo Project films — multi-language visual translations of the Gospel — stories of
Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and many others were filmed and adapted for
a global audience.
The Covenant is created to paint an accurate and contextualized portrait of the Old
Testament. Using the New International Version (NIV) text, it is designed to transform
the way people discover and study the Bible while promoting deeper Scripture
engagement. View a trailer of the film.
Producers Hannah Leader and Brent Green worked with an editorial committee
including representatives from Bible Media Group, OneHope, Faith Comes by Hearing,
SIL, and Jesus Film to craft a biblically sound script for this visual masterpiece. The
Covenant is projected to be dubbed in 70 languages by August 2023.
“It has been a challenge to complete filming on this project. We shot the film in three
different countries amidst COVID shutdowns and restrictions. So we are really delighted
to be able to announce the film’s completion! We hope this film will be a wonderful tool
to enable people throughout the world to connect with God’s promise, from the Creation
until today,” Leader said.
Mart Green of Hobby Lobby expressed his enthusiasm for the project.
“It is exciting to have a visual Scripture of the metanarrative of the Torah from the Old
Testament. It will be a huge benefit for all who see it. Having it come out in hundreds of
languages will be an amazing tool. It will give people the bigger picture of the Kingdom
of God,” Green said.
