This past weekend, my daughter and I went to see “I Can Only Imagine” in theaters. It was an excellent movie with a strong Christian message of forgiveness and overcoming. I was so thrilled that, during the previews before the movie, I saw trailers for several more Christian movies that will be coming to theaters in 2018. Among them was the trailer for Paul, Apostle of Christ.
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST
In PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST, Luke risks his life to visit Paul, who is held captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. Together, they 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.
Paul’s letters and writings were vital to the spreading of Christianity and became a large part of the New Testament. Our story focuses on how, despite persecution and peril, they shared Jesus’ message of love, redemption, and forgiveness with a small community of believers who in turn, took it to the whole world.
Great pains were taken to maintain biblical accuracy. Using scripture as the only reference, director Andrew Hyatt recreated the story of Paul on film, including the close relationship with Luke, whom at the end of Paul’s life, at his own peril, traveled in and out of the prison carrying Paul’s writings to the community of believers
The MPAA has rated the film PG-13 for some violent content and disturbing images
Running time is 1:47 min
In Theaters Nationwide Week Before Easter Friday, March 23, 2018.
Why should you plan to see Paul, Apostle of Christ?
- Paul, Apostle of Christ is a visually stunning, historically-based film that brings to life the story of Paul, who went from becoming the most notorious persecutor of the Church to its most powerful proponent among the nations outside Judea.
- Two very different men are bound together by their love for Christ. As each of them realizes that Rome has been overtaken by Nero’s evil at the same time their lives are drawing to a close, they struggle to finish their races and leave behind a book of lasting importance for the millions who will follow Christ in generations to come.
- Two themes found in Paul, Apostle of Christ, are relevant today:
- First, we are surrounded by evil, which can strike suddenly and without cause.
- Second, we can all learn from Paul and Luke: Love is the only answer.
