“Our ‘first-look’ teaser shows both the dramatic heart and biblical authenticity of Paul, The Apostle of Christ,” Director and Screenwriter Andrew Hyatt said. “Each aspect of Paul’s life is based on what we know from the Bible, and we set that true story in the perilous world of Rome in the time of Nero’s persecution of Christians. It’s a captivating, emotional drama that brings the Bible to life.”

Paul, Apostle of Christ stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ), James Faulkner (Game of Thrones), Olivier Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (The Secret Garden).

“Audiences ofPaul, Apostle of Christwill experience a story true to what we know of Paul’s life and true to the Gospel of love he shared and lived,” Berden said. “It offers a gripping account of what the early Christian community faced in Rome simply trying to practice their faith with the threat of imprisonment and death always looming.”

The official film synopsis is:

In Paul, Apostle of Christ, Paul suffers alone in a Roman prison, awaiting his execution under Emperor Nero. Mauritius, the ambitious prison prefect, can hardly see what threat this broken man poses. Once he was Saul of Tarsus, the high-ranking and brutal killer of Christians. Now his faith rattles Rome. At great risk, Luke the Physician visits the aged Paul to comfort and tend to him—and to question, to transcribe and to smuggle out Paul’s letters to the growing community of believers. Amid Nero’s inhuman persecution, these men and women will spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and change the world.

Paul, Apostle of Christ premieres in theaters across North America Easter Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
