Project Summary

My Research Project involves the exploration of the figure of Jesus in film and to what extent do these presentations enhance or undermine faith in Christian Formation. The basis of this thesis examines the concepts of universality and particularity of cultural dynamics in two Jesus films entitled The Lumo Project: The Gospel of Mark (2014) and Son of Man (2006). I intend to problematise that these ideological constructions may influence cross cultural audiences in their perceptions of the figure of Jesus.
