Paul, Apostle of Christ in Theaters this Friday


Every year about this time, I look forward to the a good movie coming out at Easter. One year it was Risen. This year it’s ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ and it’s not going to disappoint fans! Jim Caviezel, Olivier Martinez and James Faulkner are riveting. 

First of all…watch the trailer. It’s exciting, the cinematography is beautiful and the soundtrack is stunning. I love these period pieces that teach us so much about this era. Not only are we treated to a great story and film, but we learn something at the same time. That’s a win-win in our book.

Here’s the story:

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church.

Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure—yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten . . . and if he has the strength to finish well.

Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.

It’s going to have you on the edge of your seat! You can easily buy tickets here, and check out the rest of the movie’s website while you’re at it.
