About the Movie
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 grimiest 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.

This was an in-home movie night for hubby and I and we LOVE to watch movies and read the word of God. We both have a passion for God. So watching Paul, Apostle of Christ was right up our alley. We both actually have a dream of going to school and getting our degree in biblical studies or theology ( Funny right?!). Anyway, this was an overall GREAT MOVIE and Hubby and I HIGHLY recommend watching it even has a family. This movie is rated PG-13. We have teenagers that would actually sit and watch this and have a big family discussion about it.
This movie gives a great view in how christians we’re persecuted back then and even today. I do need to warn you that if you have little ones, it might be a little bit scary for them but for teenagers we thought this was a great conversation piece in how Christians today, in other countries are being persecuted.
We we’re expecting to see Paul’s childhood and basically a whole life story leading up to him in prison,but they gave a perspective of when he was in prison, writing letters. Which was disappointing but I Love that they highlighted Priscilla and Aquilla who helped Paul in his ministry which we liked. Overall, as I mentioned we LOVED the movie and would highly recommend anyone seeing it.
We also love to see the Special Features in the blue-ray DVD. The deleted scenes, The Path of Apostle Paul: How Saul became Paul, Seeing actual scripture played out in the movie is always exciting (A different perspective than whats in your head), Watching the friendship between Luke & Paul was nice to see their personalities played out and how they recreated first century Rome. So much great stuff you don’t want to miss and if you are interested in winning a DVD, check out the information below.
