We received two tickets to see Paul, Apostle of Christ in exchange for sharing this upcoming film.
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST in Theaters March 23rd
Just one week before Easter, Paul, Apostle of Christ will be released in theaters across the country. The movie tells the story of Luke as he risks his life to visit Paul, who is a captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. The story provides us with a look into their struggles as they go against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread the message to the world.
The movie was carefully written and 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
Paul’s letters and writings were vital to the spreading of Christianity, and became a large part of the New Testament. The story in Paul, Apostle of Christ 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.
The movie does have a PG-13 rating, for some violent content and disturbing images but it is important to note that these are based on actual incidents as described in scripture. The film promises to be a great Christian film that can serve as a reminder to believers to go forth and spread the gospel, regardless of the cost. Check out the movie trailer below to get a sneak peek at the film.

About the Film
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 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 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.
