If you haven’t been to a theater recently, I hope you’ll make plans to see the recently released film, Paul: Apostle of Christ, featuring award-winning actors Jim Caviezel, Olivier Martinez, and James Faulkner.
Per the movie’s website, the story follows Luke “as a friend and physician who 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 birth of what will come to be known as the Church.”
Paul: Apostle of Christ imagines the last days of the man who said, “For His sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” Paul suffered tremendous loss during his time on earth, but this film captures the incredible “gain” that fueled his ministry.
