“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst.” ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ covers Paul, going from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Jesus Christ’s most influential apostle. The movie follows his last days awaiting execution by Emperor Nero in Rome. “The day I heard you preach I saw God in you.”
“I Luke send a message to all those that follow our Lord Jesus Christ. There is a terrible evil in the world, darkness is spreading.” ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. “I know you are suffering persecution, faith is being tested, I know you question the way. But I’ve come to Rome to find Paul, to write his story. To bring hope, to bring light into this present darkness and to remind his all how God changed a hateful man who will change the history of the world.”
“This worn down man who had left everything on the playing field for Jesus and at the very end to see this frail old man and think that the emperor of largest kingdom in the world would was fearful of this broken man shows the power of Christ through His followers and believers.” 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.
“There are men, women and children who will never meet you, there must be a written account of your acts.” Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. Luke and Paul struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to bequeath the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
“Paul helped to show us that no one is beyond God’s grace. There’s always a chance.” Watch the ‘Connection to Scripture’ video below: There is a God that’s Bigger than Us in ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ We Cannot Fall too far from His Grasp.
“Paul changed from murdering Christians to becoming their unlikely leader. His life personifies ‘forgiveness,’ a concept that seems almost impossible today — but desperately needed.” Amid inhuman persecution, these men and women spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and changed the world.
“Love is the only way. Where sin abounds, grace abounds more.” Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Starring Jim Caviezel, James Faulkner, Olivier Martinez, Joanne Whalley and John Lynch ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ is directed and written by Andrew Hyatt. The film is slated to be released during the week before Easter, March 28, 2018.
Great cast, looking forward to this. What do you think?
