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 may have been one of my favorite Apostles. I appreciate that he didn’t put too much stock into niceties and was straight forward. It is the opinion of this blogger that life would be a lot easier if everyone were straight forwards. Of course, it is quite obvious that today’s society can’t really tolerate anyone disagreeing with their own perspective. Funny, if no one disagrees with us, how might we grow? As both individuals and Christians?
Paul, Apostle of Christ
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a faith film that doesn’t shy away from presenting the reality of fear, danger and persecution faced by the early believers in the time of Nero . . . and their amazing acts of faith, love and service. Practicing Christian faith often meant a death sentence in ancient Rome, often brought about by horrific means. But in the face of it, the early church continued to serve. Talk to filmmakers about the bold choice of showing what life was really like for the early Christians, and what that means for us today.
Biblical Accuracy or Cinematic Drama? How About Both!
Creators of PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST went to great lengths to be biblically authentic in details of Paul’s life and journeys. Then they created characters to interact with him weaving drama throughout. Talk to filmmakers about the challenges and benefits of bringing a New Testament story to life for 21st century filmgoers.
