* Paul, Apostle of Christ
This new motion picture follows two leaders of the early church: Luke, the physician who risks his life to visit Paul, and Paul himself, imprisoned by the emperor in Rome. Before Paul can be executed, Luke resolves to write a book detailing the beginnings of “The Way”—the church. Meanwhile, we see the aged Paul struggling as he waits for his appointment with death, pained by the shadows of his fractured past. 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.” Watch “The Heart of the Story” video in which cast and directors discuss their goals and focus of the show.
